Moisture Barrier

Posted by bernicky - May 10th, 2016

Work and work and work and work. That’s about all there is to it these days.

My grand niece managed to get out of Fort McMurray during the evacuation. It took her and her man 18 hours to make it from Fort Mac to Lac La Biche which is normally a two hour drive. They are safe though which is really all that matters.

Spring has been touch and go in Montreal – temperatures varying from -2 at night to 19 some days and only 5 and rainy others. Summer will get here, it always does.

I start two new courses this week. Introduction to C# programming and “Getting and Cleaning Data” which is basically an R programming course. Have to keep the mind busy some how.

In the meantime I finished my last watercolour sketchbook and started a new one. This one has hot pressed smooth paper in it which is very different from the first one which was cold press and very rough. Time will tell which I prefer, both handle very differently. Here is the cover and the first painting.
