Montreal Cityscape

Rue de Montréal, watercolour on paper, 11" x 15"

My brother's mother-in-law liked this painting of a Montreal cityscape so much that I gave it to her. I'm told she's had it framed. This is very flattering.

It was painted during the class that I took in Montreal this summer, at the Visual Arts Centre. The teacher, Stephanie Reynolds, laid out some photos for us to choose from, and as soon as I saw this one I jumped on it. It was so typically Montreal, and I miss those houses so much when I live away from my Montreal, as I do now.

If I could paint it again I would do some things differently, but all things considered I'm rather proud of it. And I'm glad I took a picture of it before giving it away.


  1. Hello Gina. This is a lovely watercolour. I would like to inquire about the possibility of featuring it temporarily on a website for an academic conference I am organizing in Montreal, but do not have your e-mail address. Therefore, would you kindly contact me at "" so that I can explain my request fully. Thank you. Robert Leonard, Professor of Economics, UQAM, Montreal.

  2. This is the page where the painting was used after I agreed to Mr. Leonard's request:
