Painting & Eating ::: Peinture & bouffe

January 24, 2016

You little dumpling…
So fluffy and endearing, floating on that sea of brown,
appearing as a bloated whale.
I won’t be interfering with your buoyancy.
Won’t even be peering into the pan.
I’m waiting for the moment when you, dumpling, are dumped upon my plate,
plumped by the gravy and surrounded by meat
for me to eat. — Francesca Johnson

It was nice painting again with the Montreal Urban Sketchers today as I had not joined them for a very long time. We met at the Restaurant Kim Fung in Chinatown and I sat with people that I had never met, had a terrific brunch with all kinds of exciting dumplings and some that were very  mysterious looking and then came back home to prepare for my classes for the week. As always, when I start sketching with a big group of people I am overly excited and dip into too many colours and sometimes my paints get muddied… but no matter, it was fun. For those of you who have never eaten at this place, it is really worth a visit.

Comme toujours c’était super plaisant de peindre aujourd’hui avec les Urban Sketchers de Montréal. Nous nous sommes retrouvés au moins 20 personnes pour manger et peindre en même temps au Restaurant Kim Fung dans le Chinatown de Montréal. C’est tout un de ces défit, je peux vous le dire. Si vous aimeriez vous joindre à nous, nous nous rencontrons à chaque 4e dimanche du mois et l’endroit est indiqué sur le site.

      Hi Tania — yes that is indeed the negative side of eating is that we can’t do it with everyone at the same time as we can’t stand up and swop tables with someone else, huh? — but next time perhaps? I hope to see you too next time!
