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:

A lot of fun yesterday during a mixed media workshop where I learned to marry terraskin, tissue paper and acrylic paints. It is really good to get out of our comfort zone and experiment with something different once in a while. There is nothing like it to wake up creativity. I have been pondering for a while how to loosen up my art, especially my backgrounds. My head is now full of ideas and projects.

 

Here are a few examples of yesterday’s results that  I have  not named yet . I have not decided if I will continue working on them, put more emphasis on one part versus another, if I’ll add details or leave them as is. I do find them interesting though.
