Claude A. Simard had a sketchbook in his hands everywhere he went. His drawings were his way of documenting the world around him. While others would write in journals, he used his drawings to captured a single moment in time, a feeling, a memory.
On his many travels with his wife, Huguette, he would often times disappear to a quiet corner of a village square or hike to a hillside to observe the day-to-day life of his current surroundings.
During his lifetime, he rarely shared his drawings/watercolours with the public. They were his personal logbooks. We feel extremely fortunate to be able to share these exceptional moments with you from his travels to Italy and Spain.
