This image is much more impressionistic than my usual work. It has more to do with feeling than with detail. I wanted to convey the sheer power that exhudes from this place, so I used bolder and wilder strokes than usual. I also gave it a bluish/purplish tint because this is the colour I see a lot in special places in Mexico, as if Spirit manifested as a tint over the landscape.
In the ongoing series of Montreal images, this one’s all about the brick construction and straight stairs. A typical view in the greater Montreal area.
This image is from my Montreal collection of images.
This one’s a take on Vermeer. I’m afraid I’m very far from the master, but I enjoyed painting this one all the same. As usual, thumbnails below access a jpeg and detail view. Thanks for visiting.
An excellent collection of wonderful images from the Saunière, an old merchant ship in the Port of Montreal, by my photographer friend Georges Dutil. He’s actually done remarkable work here. The level of detail is incredible, even though this is hard to see from a low resolution image from the Web. I have seen large format giclées of his work – AWESOME!
Really nice work BLU! This is a 10 minute wall-painted animation on evolution BLU-style.
Another one of my “Nature Overcomes Man” images. Stumps grow shoots and start over. Wonderful visual of life overcoming cement. I hope you like it.
Today’s image is from an inner courtyard, in a Mexican hacienda. The crossed paths, with the cross in the background, were just too inviting for me to resist. As usual, both 600 x 400 and detail jpegs below. Thanks for visiting.
Another nice and colourful housefront on the Plateau Mont-Royal, in Montreal. There’s the usual 600 x 400 jpeg and detail below.
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.
