Collectif Creativity: 30Dec2022

By Jeanne Bougie-Desjardins

This is the view of a very special place on our lake that our family enjoyed for many years. I omitted the dock with two loved ones standing there: one who has left us, the other has moved away.  The curious thing about this painting is that I’m not sad looking at it, but I feel the peace and tranquility I needed for closure.

[Editor’s note: we mentioned in our 18 November post that Jeanne placed first in Acrylic at the Focus Art Juried Show. Well this work won Peoples’ Choice Award at the same competition. Chapeau Jeanne!]
