Description of the work

The inspiration for this diptych came from a forest in Saint-Siméon, in Gaspésie. At the edge of a path, ferns with golden foliage grace the landscape, seeming to point the way. Dense and luminous, they waltz with the wind, dancing to the rhythm of the morning breeze. In the color of joie de vivre, these spirited young plants light up the scene, seeming to pay homage to the old trees that dot the scenery around them. A show for the eyes, where youth celebrates old age.
