my garden isn't a garden, it's the plain
my road isn't a road, it's the snow
My country isn't a country, it's winter
refrain from "My Country" by Gilles Vigneault
Growing up in Montreal Quebec I had favorite French singers and Gilles was one of them. His beautiful song about winter in Canada especially Quebec expresses my feelings perfectly. So thinking of this song the other morning I decided to paint a little 12" x 12" canvas similar to the wonderfully simple style of Quebec artist Jean Paul Lemieux (another personal favorite of mine) and here she is.
I really enjoyed painting this woman walking through the snow and may have to explore this style more deeply.
Have a happy, warm day!
