Newly shorn

Argh. It started off as a perfect view of a yellow building in sun and the rest of the street in shadow, and I had one hour of sketching time before heading off to school. I finished my drawing just as an SUV pulled up and blocked my view. Yikes, I should have known that would happen. I spent a moment debating the situation. Draw the car or ignore it? I looked for the driver to see where he was going and spotted him ducking into a barbershop. That meant at least 20 minutes of painting time for the car. Fortunately for me my estimate of the barber was quite accurate and I had plenty of time to paint the car before the newly-shorn man drove off. LakeshoreMorn

    Love seeing your Pointe Claire Village scenes, they make me homesick, I lived on Pointe Claire Ave. in the fifties. Have you ever painted ” The Black Cat”. (Westmount Florist Building now)?
