Christmas on Rue Champigny

This watercolour was commissioned by the Montreal financial services firm ASSURART Inc. for their 2020 company holiday card. It was very much inspired by the magical winter scenes by the Japanese printmaking artist Hasui Kawase (1883-1957). Although the image is based on photographs that I took on rue Champigny in the neighbourhood of Côte-Saint-Paul near where I live, I had to add quite a bit of snow, as we’ve had so little of it so far this year.

    I don’t usually care for watercolor, but somehow, the pose of the animal (squirrel?) sets a certain tone for me…. thank you for sharing this. I am so in awe of your work…
