Claudette Castonguay "The Joy of Being An Artist"

1203 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.

June 1, 2019 until June 13, 2019

The work of Claudette Castonguay exemplifies the phrase joie de vivre – from an afternoon cocktail party to relaxing with friends on the patio with music in the air, Claudette’s paintings pull you in and convey a feeling of being light as air. Claudette’s elegant, painterly style easily conveys the delight she feels while painting and communicates this to the viewer through wonderfully saturated colours and delicate brushwork. Warm, charming and cheerful, her paintings entice the viewer to share in a wonderful world of her imagining where painted gardens offer beautiful fragrant bouquets to decorate tables and the hats of children playing.

Painting a painting is a bit like adding poetry to your everyday life! It's choosing colors that love each other, ... then, the painting brings us somewhere, ... Maybe in the center of ourselves !!! It is also, to be natural and allow to be fulfilled the magic of calm and serene mornings !!! It's inventing unexpected villages ... surrounded by houses, trees and colorful gardens, Where we smell almost the smells of summer .... that will make us forget the long winter past! To paint is to put joy in hearts and to inspire Hope, Harmony and Peace. -Claudette Castonguay 2019
