This painting is not one of the dozen pieces in the new show at Cafe-sur-mer in Metis. However, it is cousin to all the landscapes painted in the area. The spire identifies a rather large church in the really small town of St. Octave. I love this painting for its representation  of the road leading to the town. For me, it is a slightly unusual example of surface design - a  pairing of deep space perspective and the very flat surface treatment of the bottom 3/4 of the work.

The show has just been hung this a.m. with 12 pieces, only landscapes.
Last year the show was a mix of this kind of landscape and a number of Kimono works. 
People who attended were interested in the landscapes and slightly bemused by the kimono. Oh well.

This is the announcement for a show of my paintings at the Cafe-sur-Mer gallery/espresso bar/boutique, with a vernissage/art opening from 5 to 7. The town is called Metis-sur-mer, about four hours north of Quebec City on the St. Lawrence River. I am sharing the exhibition space with Felicia Bartlett, an painter who spends her time in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick. I had work in the same gallery last summer and it is just a great place to have an exhibition. Lots of work left to do, mostly framing, but I am really  looking forward to getting the work up on the walls.

Here is another piece that I will be part of the show.
