These 3 oil painting were in the “Little Gems Show” at Galerie Ouest in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, on the West Island of Montreal from Dec. 1-13, 2010. The show was an exhibition of small works by elected members of the Society of Canadian Artists. Pre Christmas is a good time to exhibit small works of art as they are more affordable. My paintings ranged in price from $450 to $800. The Galerie is at 37 rue St. Thomas, Montreal.
I’m part of a group of artists called the “Plein Air Ensemble” that goes on two trips every year. The group is made up of about 30 artists from the Ottawa-Gatineau region.
The trip this year occurred in early April. We went to the Laurentians in Quebec and stayed at “La Centre Touristique de la Petite Rouge.” It is a beautiful area but the weather gave us rain, wind, some snow and very little sun. I worked on 15 paintings on site. In the following 3 weeks, I finished them at my studio, and they are on the web site now.
It is a great place for landscape painting and everyone who went had a fabulous time. There was even some evening entertainment. The artists that went had a lot of painting opportunities and it was a very successful trip.
