Julie Beugin at Paul Petro

Julie Beugin's Blaue Stunde (Blue Hour) which opened at Paul Petro this week is one of the highlights of the season for Bill and I.
These large, airy, paintings would feel at home in a swanky penthouse with floor to ceiling windows. That's Blaue Stunde, 2011, above and Transparency, 2011 below.
Beugin has spent the last year living in Germany. She's now back in her home base of Montreal.
Bloom, 2010
I found Beugin in the blue light of the gallery kitchen, just behind Petro's reception desk.
She modestly accepted our praise and enthusiasm. Blaue Stunde is on until Christmas. If you love painting you won't be disappointed.
