A Good Day, A Magical Day

A Good Day, A Magical Day

A good day for me would be a plein air day, a sunny day, a good subject to paint. A magical day would be that same day, but something oddly interesting and magical happened while I was painting. I didn’t paint this outdoors, but I can see the influence of all those good days. Especially on a cold damp January Wednesday.


Book of Days -Terrebonne

December 5, 2012


A new bookart on the way… from an old day book which I never filled in past January. I don’t recall which year. On January 19th, I wrote “Power Failure”. Right, like this is Canada. I don’t recall a year in January where we didn’t have a power failure. But I do remember one day in Terrebonne, the first time I went there, taking my mother out for a country drive and a lunch in a little outdoor bistro. There’s a beautiful park, and this heritage home is an art museum now. We promised ourselves we’d take my father there, he’d love it. But he never made it. He died a few weeks later. Yet I remember that day as a good day, not a sad day. That one came later. SO I think this book is going to be about those odd little cherished days. Not the Big Days.
