Catching up with my favourite tree

It seems that I’ve missed all of the fall foliage. I’m just back from Denver (working on another online course for and while I was away most of the trees in Montreal lost their leaves. All except the big sugar maples, and included in that group is my favourite tree. It lives on a street not too far from my home and every year, because of its distance from power lines, it manages to stay out of the way of chain saws and retain its near-perfect dome shape.

Preparation for my new online class has taken up most of my spare time for the past few months but I’m happy to be back and hopefully will be posting more regularly now. Just in time for the last of the leaves and the start of snow painting season.

    Hi Shari, I know you like sketching in Lachine…I took this photo yesterday moving before the Winds arrived… It was taken at Rene Levesque Park…

    What can you do with this Photo?

    I have to say, fall foliage is really a watercolor challenge.
    Maybe Montreal got remnants of the hurricane rain, like we did, this week.

    What can you tell me about the new craftsy course?


    • Hi Larry. I can’t really tell you much but it shouldn’t be too long before it comes out. The only thing I can say is that I’m very excited about it and that I worked really hard on it. And I can’t wait to be able to tell you more.

    hope your new class would include the examples of your Rockport painting – it was so pleasant to see a shop window with your art there when i visited about a month ago – your style is so unique, i recognized your work right away!
    Shari's watercolors, Rockport
