I had incredible time to travel to the Mont-Orford and Mont-Megantic Provincial Parks, Quebec in August.
This places are so beautiful and inspiring and very enjoyable to visit.
I painted one landscape in the Mont-Orford and did a lot of sketches during the trip
The most memorable part was visiting the Megantic Observatory and enjoy incredible view from the top of mountain.
I never could imagined before, to visit town of Lac-Megantic and see how they recovered from the rail disaster which happened in that place in 2013 . A train carrying petroleum crude oil crashed in the canter Lac Megantic.
But most enjoyable time in this summer trip was spending time with myfamily.
Setting up the easel.
I did a lot of photos from this incredible trip and now it’s time for painting!
Working in the isolation during the pandemic is not big difference between normal artist time and isolation time. Almost all artists during the normal days are spending hours in the art studios creating the masterpieces.
The problem is during the isolation time the artists fased, it’s not enough art supplies you can buy. But now the stores started operated and some art supplies are available in the art stores. Mostly they are shipping online, and waiting time is extended.
My isolation time was quite productive. I started new series of abstract works ” Secrets from the Garden“. Two paintings from that series were already accepted to the Online Art Exhibition “Gay Gardens, hosted by John Aird art gallery , Toronto
Also I painted a few landscapes and small cityscapes as well.

It’s very important when artists are supported by selling the art during this difficult time, when all art shows postponed and art galleries closed. I was very lucky to have support from my loyal customers and I wish them to enjoy my paintings year after year.
