'After Suzor Coté '


11" x 14" oil on panel



I was inspired to paint this scene upon discovering a few small-scale paintings done by a former Quebec based artist (Marc-Aurèle Suzor Coté ,  1869-1937)  

...who had  a genius for combining  a roughness of technique with an immediacy, spontaneity, and even an elegance. (I'm not saying I achieved the same results as well as he did, but I appreciate his aesthetic, and his inspiration...) -
