QUEBEC SKETCHBOOK

Author: John Collins

Synopsis: The great French scientist Lois Pasteur once said that when it comes to observation, chance favors the prepared mind, and so it is with John. The most important thing he takes with him when he steps out of his front door is not, as you might expect, his pencils and sketchbook. Sometimes, walking about, he has been caught without paper when a scene has struck him and has had to make do, as he wryly explains, with “backs of envelopes, old bills and once an old cigarette package found by the side of the road.” No, far more important than such obvious tools is his artist’s eye; it is always with him.
