...Yep, I'm still working through my obsession with Jean Paul Lemieux...I don't expect it will ever really end. I've just ordered a book about his work, so you can expect to see more of his influence in my art. The first time I really became aware of his work was on a trip to Rideau Hall, the Governor General's Residence here in Ottawa. If you're in Ottawa this summer, take a stroll through the gardens and enjoy the grand old home.


If you would like any additional information regarding this painting please feel free to email me with any questions.
