Where the train goes…
Some days are just gloomy which makes sunset looks so beautiful. With a grimy look and profane disdain sunset shows us how ending can be perfect as well.
Well, this was my first official mystery book and I must say I enjoyed! Many people have recommended this author over the years and I can see why. This was the first book in her critical acclaimed series featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. I liked him a lot. The book is set in Quebec and addresses the issues between the anglophones and francophones in the area - while not from Quebec, I am Canadian and have both sides of this before so it was intriguing.
I loved how she developed the characters, so imperfect, so real. They all had qualities which were laudable but also those which were less flattering, making them all possible suspects. I loved the name of the book.
This book took me longer to read, which is not something I like, hence my dislike of big books but I wanted to pay close attention to the prose as I didn’t want to miss a clue.
I will definitely be reading more in this series! I give it 4.5 out of 5 but only because it took me so long to read!

So a still life is a drawing that is of unmoving and inanimate objects. BUT if you take a picture of said object and draw from the picture, is it still a still life? Like you could use grid technique and siting but it’s just from a photo of a still life set up???

So it begins.
My first real still life in way too long. I really need to get items that are not white or super smooth. Need to practice textures.
