Painting of the week : INNOCENCE

©2011 Suzanne Bélair
Oil on canvas 24 X 18

My painting « Innocence » was selected to be sold during the Shield of Athena 24th Annual Art auction in support of the fight against family violence and its consequences. The auction takes place November 18th at Le 1000 on De La Gauchetière Ouest in Mtl.


This painting is very special to me because it was my deceased friend that took the picture of her niece and gave me permission to paint it.


The painting was part of a very unique exhibition in the summer of 2014 that took place in Lac Megantic, Qc. The exhibit called “Les Chemins de la Renaissance” was all about the rebirth of the community and town that were devastated by a train derailment that burnt close to half the downtown area of Lac Megantic on July 6th 2013 and killed more than 47 people. The exhibit spoke of hope and reconstruction and I talked about it here:


The painting was also part of a publication called “Carnet Résolution Santé” that was launched in October 2013. For more details on this:


So it is now that this very unique painting will help raise funds for a great cause I very much care about.


Two other paintings were also chosen by the jury for this special event:
