Sculpted Landscapes Inspired by Quebec Painters

 

Quebec painters of rural homesteads,

from Krieghoff to Gagnon and others who often worked in Charlevoix County,

have intrigued me so much recently that I borrow freely from their compositions for sculpted oval landscapes of my own. 

 

By doing so I pay respect to their warm human focus, which is usually absent in the work of the Group of Seven.
