The Barn as a Studio





Painting in the barn has been so healing for me this summer. The 150 year old building itself is a work of art, situated on a high profile road en route to Mont-Tremblant, yet
set back into the woods far enough that it is a quiet and pleasant work environment. People who come to visit are transformed the moment they enter the barn by the beauty that surrounds them. Nature, art and history embrace
them as they slow down from their busy lives and wander through the humble studio/gallery that makes no lofty claims
about what art is and allows the viewers to approach the work on their own terms. Eventually the barn will become too
cold to work in and I will have to move to warmer digs for the winter but for now I am relishing every moment in this magical
environment.
