Here's another "cropped miniature water scene" featuring a red starboard hand buoy, one of those typical navigation devices that can be found on the Lachine Canal.

"Port hand buoys are green and starboard hand buoys are red. They show which side of a channel is safest to travel; accordingly, they mark channels or hazards. Generally, green buoys must be passed on the left side of a craft heading upstream, i.e., against the current. Red buoys must be kept on the right side of a craft when proceeding in the upstream direction. A simple rule is red to the right when returning, or the three “R’s”: red, right, return.
"(The Buoyage System, from the Canadian Boating Course).

Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful week,

The view of this little "urban sanctuary"is situated at the midpoint on my jogging road which follows the Lachine channel, the waterfalls are produced by the opening of a near channel lock.
Water is my element I could say, the sound of rushing water is a pure blessing for one who lives near downtown.

Thanks for your visit!

Private Collection

So here's the third and last small painting of the "roses" series. Working with these red pigments is always stimulating but also kind of challenging to me, due in fact to the transparency so characteristic of that range of the spectrum.

I wish you a beautiful weekend!
thanks for stopping by,
