Painting a Country

Thirty years ago, candy pink or purple trees where hardly ever seen in paintings, as elements of composition rather aimed at depicting reality without too much whim or fancy.

Michel Soulières has a passion for painting. A need that must absolutely be filled, an irresistible obsession, almost a compulsion! In his sleep, he dreams about the joys of painting. Early in the morning, before making breakfast for his children, he tries to capture the images that came to him during the night. Otherwise, his creative élan must be relegated to the weekends and any other free moments when he is not working as a house painter, a job that helps provide for daily necessities and at which he excels notably when marble and granite faux finishes are involved. The latter, needlessto- say, he mostly performs in prestigious locations and on a large scale.
