This canvas was inspired by the beauty of nature. I looked at the different hues in the flowers and in the leaves of the trees, and the idea came to me of decomposing colors. The character seems to be meditating as if to be contemplating natural beauty. The fragmentation of colors in different shades is accentuated by the very fine black outline around each shape.

The piece is painted on a cradled wood panel, prepared with modeling paste for texture and finished in oil paint. The sides are painted black and the canvas is ready to hang.

Getting to Know Clemence

Initially everything is abstract, gestural and intuitive for Clemence Dubois. A shape becomes a bird, a fish, a flower or a character. Her paintings capture colors and shapes that words have yet to say. She says, “I want people to look at my paintings and observe my feelings for beauty in all forms and my joy of living that permeates my art.” Clemence likes to read, watch television, swim and travel. She also leads workshops in creative and figurative painting.
