} Mural Festival Photo Day


Recently (ok, OKAY, many weeks ago already…), I learned about the Mural Festival here in Montreal, and thought right away about my friend Pierre and how we’d been saying we should do a photo day together since we first met many months earlier. Perfect opportunity right?!

Now, this is also a tad intimidating for me, since Pierre’s actually a freelance photographer. As in full-time job. I mean, the dude lives for and from his camera, he’s super talented, and here I am wanting to “mesure up”? Huhhhh, I don’t think so. lol!

Sooo, I put that scary thought way far in my mind, and went in with my usual approach for photodays, which I would qualify more as fascination. It really does fascinate me that two people can go at the same spot, at the exact same time, and come up with such different results. The eye doesn’t see the same from a person to the next, nor does the connections in each brain follow the same route. (And nor does our photography and life experiences, nor gear, match. lol) Our end results clearly shows all of that!

That goes to prove one of my favorite mottos: everyone is different, and also same. Sure, generalization can be useful to explain a point or theory, but fact of the matter is, we are unicity.

Anyway! Back to the main subject… Mural Festival. It was a street art event that was held on St-Laurent street in June, so I’m kinda later for this post. But then again, two positives: 1- those big murals are still there yo. ;) and 2- Pierre was quick publishing his shots on his blog, so it balances out my tardiness… Doesn’t it…? Maybe…? No…? Ah… Alrighty then. lol!

Here we go for mine! (Feel free to click to see bigger versions.)


Oops, wasn’t I there for Mural? … As you can see, I must admit I felt myself kinda fighting against my natural photography instincts. I tend to go macro, nature or architecture when I’m out with my camera. SO, I sometimes had to “force myself” to explore that for what I was there. There is hope, cause I was able to do a little of it…

The talent of some people, I tell ya! Wowsa!


Aaaaaand back to regular macro/nature/architecture programming… lol! (And, do note the lack of one single portrait, compared to tons of them captured thru Pierre’s eyes! I really DO like humans, I swear. lol)


Well there it is! :)

To end, two last pictures, showing HOW MUCH my camera needs a well deserved cleaning after over 7yrs of service. See all those dots?! Yeah. In a busy image, they don’t show, but in skies, it’s a pain. Used to be only 2-3, so it was easy to clean up in Photoshop, but now they are allll overrrr and it’s driving me nutsssss! I just need to GO DO IT…

} PucesPop

It’s pretty much Fall now (YAY! My favorite season!), and what that also means for me is PucesPop time!

PucesPop is a craft show that I’ve been doing for a while now, and I just love it! I’m used to working in my home, selling online or in consignment shops, and I never get to see my buyers. And that is why craft shows are so important and so fun for me! I get to see people in the flesh, and interact with those who fall in love with some of my pieces. Priceless, I’m telling ya!

If you are in the Montreal area, come say hello on
September 24-25

from 11AM to 6PM
at St-Michael’s Church, 105 St-Viateur St. West.

See the vendor directory, and I hope to see your faces this weekend!! :D

L’automne est là (YÉ! Ma saison favorite!) et ce que ça veut aussi dire pour moi c’est que c’est le temps de PucesPop!

PucesPop est une foire artisanale à laquelle je participe depuis quelque temps déjà, et j’adore! Je suis habituée de travaille de chez moi, de vendre en ligne et en boutiques, ce qui fait que je ne rencontre jamais mes acheteurs. C’est pour cette raison que les foires artisanales sont si importantes et plaisantes pour moi! Je peux de cette façon rencontrer des gens en chair et en os, et interagir avec ceux qui tombent en amour avec certaines de mes créations. Tout ça n’a pas de prix!

Alors si vous êtes dans la région de Montréal, venez me dire un petit bonjour!
24-25 Septembre

de 11h à 18h
à l’église St-Michel, 105, rue St-Viateur Ouest.

Consultez le répertoire des artisans, et j’espère voir vos visages ce weekend!! :D

Wonder for Wonder

Stevie Wonder Original Painting, by lorrainesart.

Stevie rocks! And I will (hopefully) get the chance to see him in concert tonight at the Montreal Jazz Fest!

Hopefully?! Yes, well because:
1- it’s a free concert on opening night of the Fest and well, the guy’s a legend and hopefully I won’t be TOO far in the crowd and not SEE him! lol
2- because the Fest’s policy is that the concerts stop if there is rain (and they are planning some thunder and showers) and then resume once the it stops, if it stops.

The odds are bad, I know! lol! But let’s wish for the best and I’ll be there with some friends, hopeful, right? :) Please wish Montrealers luck!!


Well, it was AWESOME!! The floooood of people was insane lol! There was some rain before the show, but only a few weak drops during! YAY! :D
