Maison Chenier Sauve


Ah! A summer painting, a great time to start blogging this book. I have to go out into the cold and wind to shovel as soon as I finish this.

We were painting en Plein Air and I recall it was a blazing hot day. I found a spot in front of the beautiful old house, which I’ve painted before. It might show up in these blogs one day.

The church in the background has a famous story with a twist: a soldier accidentally set off a shot and a great war was won. It’s a lot quieter now in a sleepy town on the north shore of Montreal.

The writing is an extract from the program that I send around to the Plein Air Club. On the left is an old label from a Poire William eau-de-vie, a great drink on ice and a splash of water for a hot summer day.

    Ok. Linda. Is this when we went to Ile aux Moulins. I am looking in my sketch book and see a similar church steeple but this is the only similarity.
    You found the best sketching spots, so hope you are in for 2014.

      Same church. Good call, Linda! But this is from a house further down the street from the Moulin, just where that little river joins the Mille Isles river. We should go back there next year!
