Artwork Description
François Fournier Canadian Impressionist http://francoisfournierart.com/ This painting depicts a field in march during a grey day, while the snow is slowly melting. This is taking place in the Eastern Townships in LaPatrie, Quebec, Canada. That is in the Appalachian's mountains close to New Hampshire, Vermont/USA border Nature varies itself relentlessly. It is this contact with a persistently changing environment that inspires his creations. By observing the constantly shifting seasons, days, hours, or moods, François Fournier interprets the same area differently every time he returns to it. Each time he revisits a location, nature has renewed itself because light and atmosphere may have changed various physical features and modified curves, colours and textures. The work shown is a 24" x 36" original oil painting on a stretched canvas. Fournier is a graduate of Bishop’s University with a Bachelor of Studio Fine Art degree. His work is shown in a number of galleries throughout the Eastern Townships of Quebec and a variety of art shows and exhibitions. His work is also part of private and public collections such as the Loto-Quebec Collection. Please Note: Paintings are shipped free to any destination.

Biography
Nature varies itself relentlessly. It is my contact with this constantly changing environment that inspires my creations. By observing its shifting seasons, days, hours, or moods, I interpret the same area differently every time I return to it. I find that when I revisit a location, nature has renewed itself: light and atmosphere may have changed various physical features and modified curves, colours and textures.

Throughout my production, I have learned to discover the natural world more intensely. I believe I capture its true essence a little more every time. Nature seems to reveal a few more secrets; whenever, I am in touch with it.

My painting style could be qualified as impressionist-expressionist. My painting mediums are oil paint and oil pastel. However, it is my close relationship with nature; that gives me the most satisfaction. When I paint, I enjoy familiarizing myself with a variety of details that I probably would have overlooked in another context.

My paintings are the offspring of an intimate relationship between nature and myself.
