There are three large versions of Québec City from the Ocean Limited at Lévis, I always saw it in the Winter. The work is based on my observation of the Ville de Québec from my sleeping compartment of the Ocean Limited while stopped at Lévis. The image shows ice floating by on the Saint Lawrence and ice formed along the north and south banks. The two black circles in the foreground represent tires and other trash discarded on the shore ice illuminated by the light from my sleeping compartment. Soon after I finished the three works Canadian National abandoned the Lévis track and rerouted the Ocean Limited through Charny, so this is a vanished view.
