A collection of paintings done from November 2021 - February 2022 on the Ottawa River based in Chapeau Quebec across from Westmeath Ontario.
I wanted to paint snow and winter in Canada and more specifically, the Ottawa River. I reached out online through Kijiji and other web platforms looking for someone to rent me a winterized cottage for 3 months so i could absorb a Canadian winter and paint.
Lucky for me, Joelle Picard very bravely put her hand up and let me share her space. She gave me a bunkhouse to sleep in and another room where i could set upo a studio to paint in.
These paintings are a the result of that adventure
