Description

This painting was realized by the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. After particularly hard times for me, I felt the need for some calm, kindness and introspection. The subject was generously proposed by François Constantin, wildlife photographer whom I thank so much for his support and complicity. A Boreal Owl that can be seen only during winter season in the southern areas of Quebec province when she can’t find no more food in the Taïga forest where she lives the rest of the year. She needs trees for sheltering and install her nest, so the large forest exploitation harmed the population. I’ve chosen to support this oil on canvas painting by applying a textured molding paste, giving the whole scene more profundity. I particularly like to work bark with knife for the rhythm and more realism. The light was enhanced by a mint green colour contrasting with this camaïeu of pink to burgundy evoking the dawn, as this new beginning after darkness. I’ve felt at the end of the creative process, more grounding for myself, ready for this brand new year with all the expectations for always more love, more kindness, more trust and confidence for all and each of us.
