Off beaten path – Denise Pelletier Tour

Posted by on Jul 28, 2013 in Blog | 1 comment

Off the beaten path – Exploring colours and flavours By Yves Thériault (Denise’s husband), translated by Christiane Ryan Waiting to depart on a train or an airplane, with a bundle of canvasses neatly attached to her packsack, Denise Pelletier skips class. Over the last 15 years, she has periodically taken breaks from daily life to travel to foreign countries. Denise is a migrating artist. Just as the Impressionists did, she lets instinct lead her to exploring new places, where she plants her easel. In her travels – from Corsica, Tuscany, Provence, Brittany, to the Scottish...

Clouds are fascinating to paint

This weeks guest blogger is Gaye Adams.  Gaye instructed for us this year in May, and we look forward to having her return in 2015. “As a child Gaye’s closest companion was her sketch book, and she can’t recall a time when she didn’t draw.
