I forgot many things in preparing for this trip. I forgot my hairbrush, my waterproof shell, my painting kit. I was a bit scattered. I was distracted by my preoccupations, my emotions, my worries about how I would manage the rented car, the various parts of the trip. It is a classic hidden belief of many seemingly capable people that they are ” pretenders”; that they are not really so able, so confident, so adult. I have this feeling sometimes. It was a familiar surprise when I discovered how many things I had forgotten. None of them are vital and most were rectified by a trip to the remarkably well-stocked dollar store in this little town. So, here is a picture of the roofs of the Main Street in St Andrews. And here is a photograph of what I noticed and liked very much-the sharp daring roof lines of the buildings. It was painted with a one dollar kit if children’s’ watercolours . For you to judge.
Nothing like making do. Beg or borrow a shell. Love it.
I guess this is what you call naive art! (Or is it $$ store art?) St Andrews looks like a nice town! Hope you have better weather than in Montreal!
