A word about painting from Emily Carr. “We may copy something as faithfully as the camera, but unless we bring to our picture something additional ‑ something creative ‑ something of ourselves ‑ our picture does not live.” (Taken from Emily Carr, a Biography, by Maria Tippett, Stoddart, 1979, page 193.)

Je suis une Artiste Peintre depuis 10ans déjà. Je suis de la grande région de l’Outaouais. Depuis toujours les couleurs mon toujours fasciner, les formes etc. Je ne pensais pas qu’un jour je développerais un profond intérêt pour cette Art. Alors en 2005 j’ai pris ma retraite et j’ai sorti mes pinceaux. J’ai un immense plaisir à colorer mes tableaux que je remplie de couleurs. J’adore m’exprimer au travers mes toiles. Je suis heureuse aujourd’hui d’avoir laissé mes pinceaux me guider. Je fais de L’Abstrait, Art Moderne, Art naïf, j’aime tous les arts. J’expose avec une grande fierté, j’aime ce que je fais, alors en espérant que vous allez aimer mes toiles bon visionnement à vous tous.
I have done a bit of organizing and have changed the dates for the author/artist promo’s. So on the 1st of each month will be the artist promo and on the 15th of each month will be the author’s promo.
This should make things a little more spaced out and easier to follow schedule wise.
This means tomorrow, a new artist promo will go up! Come back tomorrow to check it out!
