Collectif Creativity: 11Oct2022

By Paulette Poirier

I took out a photo of a 2011 family reunion and fondly remembered my uncle. So I  started by sketching him a few times then gradually took out my oils.

Funny things happen sometimes; no matter how I tried to use thick oil colours I kept cleaning off my board and this is the result.  

He was a soft spoken, gentle, quiet man and I liked him a lot even though we didn’t see him regularly.  I hope that his “essence” portrays him well.
