Old Montreal

Here is the fourth in my little series on Montreal and Quebec architecture. It's based on a photo taken last weekend in Old Montreal, and shows some of the different styles of buildings seen there: the 17th-century French Canadian style, the Victorian, the early mid-rises and the modern skyscraper, off in the distance.
I made a line-drawing based on the photo, and then translated that into black stitching on hand-dyed gray cotton. It's mounted on a 12"-square gallery canvas.
I now have four pieces in this series so they can be grouped together in upcoming shows.
