Fox trot

I was out sketching in Lachine this morning when I noticed a fox trotting by on the other side of the street. It went one way and then came back, and finally settled across from me, partially hidden on someone’s driveway, for a very long time. I couldn’t figure out why it was hanging around and then I realized that it had likely been displaced from its usual habitat in the park nearby. There was a running race going on in the area — in fact the finish line was just down the street — and the neighbourhood was filled with runners, cheering spectators, police, and assorted others on bikes or with dogs and strollers. No wonder the fox was out of sorts.

    Shari, welcome back. Your street scènes are very interesting. Love them. You were not far from Mc Laughlin street. Yesterday alley is fantastic. Good perspective.


    • Andre, I knew you would know exactly where I was. I always think about you when I am in Lachine. Yes, I saw McLaughlin Street. Great little spot that I will sketch next time. Thanks!

    Nice square format! A new sketchbook?
    Love the wires… always interesting how my mind usually blanks out all that aerial clutter when I am outside. (I think that I may have commented this before, but I can’t keep track anymore)


    • Thanks Ross. This isn’t a new sketchbook. I’ve been using this format for at least a year (I think this is my fourth filled book) but I often use both sides so it seems like a horizontal book. Yes, I love the square format.

        So… you love the square format… but use both sides to make horizontal format? Sort of defeats the purpose of having a square format book… doesn’t it?


      • Not really. Two formats for the price of one.
        Seems better than a horizontal book which would require me to tape off half the page to get a square format.

        That is so logical of you… I am impressed… and surprised.
