Arrêt d’autobusPosted: April 29, 2016
I can’t say I’m unhappy to see the end of this work week. I spent way too much time in the car visiting my students who are near the end of four-week internships they are doing in various companies. I drove from one end of Montreal to the other — in traffic, and through much construction — so far out east that I went past the oil refineries and then back across the Pont Jacques-Cartier.
It’s a very exciting time for both me and my students. They get to work in the real world for a month (they have been studying print and web design for the past three years) and I get to see if what we have been teaching them is relevant. I can proudly say that they all had rave reviews from their respective employers, so I ended the week on a high note despite all the driving and traffic I sat in.
In the middle of all that I tried to sketch when I had a few minutes between visits. There was no time to paint but I was parked on St. Laurent today and spent some time in my car, drawing the bus stop sign, until the money ran out on my parking meter.
Through all this, I got to see a multitude of places that I want to return to for sketching. In fact, I would love to plan an outing to draw a panorama of Montreal from the pedestrian lane of the bridge. Anyone game to join me?
