Every year in July the Montreal Jazz Festival attracts musicians and music lovers from around the world. This image is from the Place des Arts set where strollers can stop and rest a bit before the next show.
I’m fascinated by the unseen, the places and spots we go by without a thought that contain full Universes if you only stop and look – or stop and listen?.
This roots network was at the foot of a tree in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. I’m simply amplifying through color (and strokes) what is always there for the observer to see. I never tire of looking at this type of visual.
It isn’t as impressive as a sunset or some great garden somewhere, but, in its own granularity, it is just as rich and deep as any vista. I hope you like it. As usual, thumbnail accesses a 600 x 400 jpeg.
At the Gold Canyon Golf Resort, near Phoenix, Arizona, plants are of the desert variety: wonderful, sturdy and pricky! Cactus Hill is just one of many areas on the resort’s grounds I found I had to paint. Click on thumbnail below to access a 600 x 400 jpeg.
The tree really has a green bark. With the Saguaros, fronds and dried shrubs, the grounds, drenched in sunshine, give a watercolor version of the world. This image is from my stay at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort, near the Apache Trail, in Arizona. Click on the thumbnail below to access a 600 x 400 jpeg.
I only stayed one night at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort. Didn’t have time to take too many shots, but still found some interesting views (not that I have any merit – the nature there is awesome and the property’s landscaping is superb!). This one’s a bit on the Mescalito side of things, but still, I think it gives a good idea of the place. Drop by if you have the chance. Oh! And you can also play golf ;o)

My first upload in a new series of images from Arizona’s Apache Trail. This one’s called Standing Guard. The shot was taken at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort, where I stayed overnight while on my walkabout. Thumbnails below access a 400 x 600 jpeg and a detail of the image.
Who knew the Fairy Godmother lived in Montreal? Thumbnail accesses a jpeg, as usual.
One of my favourite spots, at Hacienda Galindo, in Mexico’s San Juan del Rio, is so wonderfully inspiring and calm, I wish I could work on my images sitting there, in that lovely terrace, with a pitcher of horchata. Hmmmm!

This one’s a bit different. It’s still a Plateau Mont-Royal image, a back-alley actually, but the subject is a scooter I chanced upon in my explorations of my neighborhood’s spaces. I just liked how someone used a small area as a parking spot. Perfect for such a small vehicle. Thumbnail below accesses a 400 x 600 jpeg.
This one I really like. It’s as if a rainbow had splashed over everything: trees, shrubs, stone, glass, even the air.
