Montreal landscape

I’ve painted 2-3 landscapes having Montreal as a aubject…this is one of them. My feelings toward Montreal are mixed – well mixted and unclear, like a muddy water… I’m attracted – like a fly is attracted to the sweet paper where she will glue her wings – and I’m afraid and rejected… I don’t like big cities. I abhore multitudes of people of all kind. I’m shy. I know there are a lot of art galleries and probably a lot of rich people out there, who could, eventually, like and even buy my paintings… But I have no car, for the moment, and I feel like Jack Lemon and his wife coming to New York… It’s a metropolis, a big city who asks for capabilities I have not: speed, slickness, debrouillardise… I’m not mentally handicaped but I feel like one in Montreal’s traffic… It scares the hell out of me… It’s stupid, I know. But I cannot help this: I’m a little town guy, at most a medium town guy… But there are interesting colors and there are interesting forms to paint in this city. I even heard they have a Promenade des artistes… I chose to paint the roofs of Montreal, probably  because there is no traffic there… except for the birds… and I love birds…
