Rue Saint Denis, Montreal

Posted by on January 31, 2012 in Gallery, Paintings | 0 comments

I spent a little time in Montreal in August.  It’s a beautiful city, and while it is very French, it’s very North American, too.  Sometimes I felt like I was in Seattle, or New York, or San Francisco–and then there are those moments when it feels very much like Paris, or Lyon.

Either way, it’s a lovely place, and I’ve had a lot of fun making paintings from the photos I took there.  Here’s one of them–this is Rue Saint Denis, a boulevard that runs through the city and is lined with shops and restaurants. Scott was in one of these shops buying us ice cream while I stood on the sidewalk and tried to catch the last of the light.
