It's my third work of his -- he's one of my favourites. Nothing profound, but I quite like the simplified, abstracted Quebec landscapes of his. This one is part of his 'Blues Pour un Piquet de Cloture', which I translate as blues for either a post fence, or fence post. I'm not quite sure. ('Piquet' must be the same root as for picket fence, right? So it should be the fence?)
But it's so simple, and yet there's so much there.
It's so obviously (to me) one of the mountains of the South Shore -- Mont St-Bruno, Mont St-Gregoire, Rougemont, Yamaska -- one of those. And now, of course, I need to find out which one. Hell, it could even be one of the Laurentides, seeing as how the guy had a cabin up there -- who knows? Does it matter?
But yeah. eBay is a real trap for me. Going on every now and then, I can see how addictive it can be, once you actually get into the process. But the thing is -- I love Pichet, and how else to get him? If I can get in on a lowball, great, and if I lose out, then it was just a fair price (which I can't afford).
I've picked out a spot in the house already. Nice and dark stairwell, so I see it all the time, but the indirect sunlight will be minimal.
