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: https://wp.me/p9FGQ-8F

 

The painting was also part of a publication called “Carnet Résolution Santé” that was launched in October 2013. For more details on this: https://wp.me/p9FGQ-74

 

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:

The wind gently pushes the fallen leaves over the lake surface creating some patterns difficult to describe, bringing them together, the lighter ones stopping on top or beside the thicker ones, touching, fighting to stay afloat. Some start to sink a bit. All will end up  at the bottom of the lake. On the top of some leaves, reminders of life, small cocoons, needles, miniature insects that have not yet given up on their cycle of life. Aquatic plants are peeking from underneath, still reaching for the sun despite the barrier now in place.

This painting as well as 3 others paintings of mine will be auctioned at the Shield of Athena Family Services’ annual auction at Ogilvy’s Tudor Hall in Montreal on November 8th, 2015.

I am happy these paintings were chosen for this prestigious auction and that I can participate and help with this important cause.

In fall, deep red invades this bush and its reflection in the lake water.

This little bush has survived over the years despite erosion and its roots being eaten by baby beavers sometimes. We have stabilized it now and love to watch its vivid color each fall.

When petals detach from chrysanthemums, disorder spreads reminding us of the impermanence of it all.

Their support, intervention and prevention services are culturally and linguistically adapted to meet the needs of many of Montreal’s major ethno-cultural communities.” taken from website
