from Bordeaux to Niagara

Quelques cercles, Kandisky, 1926

Posted by PicasaFrom Beaubourg, a view on the roofs of Paris

As I'd said, no painting for the moment, because we have left our home almost a week now.
We spent 2 days in Paris, with the exhibition Kandisky, at Beaubourg Center, which I enjoyed a lot.
Until now I was completely ignorant of his painting, I was not attracted by it, and it was a very interesting discovery.
On Tuesday we took an Air Transat plane to Toronto, where we spent 2 days at Alan"s brother. It was very hot there,and there was suddenly a furious shower on Tuesday afternoon, before we took a car to go to Niagara On The Lake which is a wonderful little town.
Today, this Friday, at 9 am was the visit to Niagara Falls, that begun with a small 4 seats plane for 30mn ,(luckily, it was before a shower) then the White Water Walk,with some slippery wood stairs, and obviously the Maid of the Mist , on a boat as in Niagara's movie ,with plastic raincoats, because it was very wet!
I took a lot of pictures, I hope it will inspire me for future paintings!
Tomorrow we will leave our lovely B&B to come back to Toronto for taking the train to Winnipeg, which will take 2 nights and 1 day!
It will be a nice experiment, we"ll have a comfortable accomodation, and we like long trips, by train or boat!
So, see you soon!


  1. Sound like a really great trip...have fun and take lots of pics to paint!

  2. Hi Sylviane,

    Wow! You were right here in Toronto and I didn't know. Have a great time in Canada.

    If you are coming back to Toronto, email me, and maybe we could meet for coffee, if I'm in town.

    Great blog.

    Take care,


  3. I enjoy reading about your trips! Thanks for sharing. Keep taking those photos!
