Last chance snowPosted: April 11, 2016
My favourite time of the day to paint is the morning — the light is often better and there are more parking spots on the street — but I don’t get to choose my teaching schedule and this semester I was in class early every day. That means I missed all the fresh snow, because if you live in Montreal you are well aware that almost every morning snowfall melted away with the rain that followed it. It snowed again last night, maybe for the last time this April (or maybe not!), and for once I had no class AND there was a parking spot facing my favourite strip of old buildings on Lakeshore Road. A reason to celebrate for sure.
If you are looking for something to do this coming weekend (April 15-17), the Lakeshore Association of Artists is holding the annual spring show at Fritz Farm in Baie d’Urfé (20477 Lakeshore Road). It’s a wonderful outing on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, there’s lots of great art on display (more than 40 artists — including me — will be exhibiting) and it’s for a good cause (a portion of the proceeds from all the art sold goes to Nova West Island). More details about the show here. If you are thinking of dropping by to say hello, the vernissage is Friday evening, and I’ll also be around on Saturday afternoon as well. Hope to see you there!
