Hi there,

I just had another look at the website and realized I've never given you feedback. I love your work. Well, I always have actually. I would like to have a piece but am so undecided. Do you have others that are not currently on the website? What about the yellow dorey? Is it sold?

Say 'h'i to Joan. Hope everyone is well.

Hi Malcolm

I read your commentary in the Citizen this morning. I recently moved from the Outaouais (Gatineau - RH Lalonde) and then Chelsea, after 30 years there. I still have family and friends there, probably a stone's throw from you.

We live in Gaspereau, NS (Wolfville) next to an abandoned cemetery where there are over 100 graves, some dating back to Acadian times.

I lived next to Eastern Passage as a child. My stepfather spent his childhood on Devil's Island, and your story made me think at first that you were a neighbour of his, as the setting was so similar. However, they had no church there, and the only reason for its existence was the lighthouse. Yes, the fish were accessible by rowboat, but I imagine that was one of the few advantages of living on that barren forsaken patch of rock bearing such a foreboding name.

During the war all the island folk were moved to the mainland, for fear of raids by German submarines that frequently showed their periscopes in hopes of catching a glimpse of military operations in the mouth of Halifax Harbour.

My stepfather eked out a meagre existence during his fishing career, and finally ended his days as a longshoreman.

Dear Mr. Surette,
My mother-in-law Rebecca Doucette lives in Sluice Point. She loves your artwork as do I. I particularly love the painting entitled, "The Hill II". When we visit 'down home', we are always excited to see that vista as we know we are almost at the end of our long, long journey from the States. I see that your original has been sold. Do you sell prints of this work? I would very much like to buy one for myself and one for Becky. It would be a perfect birthday gift for her.
Thank you so much for your beautiful paintings of this special part of Nova Scotia.
Sincerely,
Pat Brennan

J'aime beaucoup tes tableaux. Like your colors and your style, the old quilts and the landscape etc. I am from Sainte anne du Ruisseau, living in Church Point since 1975. Started painting during that time and have been painting ever since....

Hello Malcolm

Was looking at your paintings, they are very nice, love the ones especially with the old homes, the kids out playing hockey, really love them all.
I live in the Sates but was born in Halifax and lived until I was 17 in Pubnico, I went to Ste Anne du Russeau, How about you, I was there the same time as Deanna.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas..

I LOVED your painting "The Hill II". You set the painting's point of view very close to my grandmother's birthplace -- the house now owned by Peter Leance! I can easily see Andy & Victoire's house and perhaps Stella & Norman Doucett's, up on the right.

Do you have any other paintings of the Hill? The rest of my relatives still live (or lived) just past the church towards Sluice Point (The Bourques, Fidelis & Madeline Moulaison, Melbourne & Emilienne Moulaison, Octavie (Moulaison) Muise, etc. In the early 1920s, my grandfather Jean Lezin Amirault and grandmother Marie Louise (Moulaison) Amirault moved from The Hill to Malden, Massachusetts, where my mother Pauline was the first in the family to be born in the USA.
