I've spent the early months of 2013 working on commissions. I cannot post all of these works on
this site, some being too personal for my clients or simply outside of my current artistic view. 
I created this new piece for a new collector, a wonderful woman who in parallel to her professional lawyer career, inspires everyone around through her multifaceted talents and passion for life.

The old rail bridge

"The old rail bridge" Oil on masonite, 9 x 12 inches
(click on image for larger view)
Sold

The reference image was taken among other urbanscapes depicting the surroundings close to my studio, where we might see many railbridges, beautiful remnants from the industrial era of Montreal. First version of the painting (2010) was more painterly than my usual technique, besides I enjoy more the new 2012 palette and the sharper rendering.
