MA PASSION...

MY PASSIONS...

THE MOMENT ...

The precise moment of the soul, the little spark, the present which already belongs to the past, these colors of life that I freeze on my canvases for eternity.

 

So that with a simple glance, they reflect all the subtlety and the sensitivity of this emotion… The very one which gives this feeling of drunkenness and happiness, which made your heart beat.

Francine Beaudet painter, captor of precious moments.

MY PROFILE

Paint, is the greatest of professions

 

Born in 1964 in Ste-Sophie-de-Lévrard, Francine Beaudet is the third of a family of six children.   She grew up on a farm in the country.   Fascinated by the art and so early on in her primary school years, she participated in several drawing contests.  In her adolescent years, she develops a vivid interest to paint, thanks to a cousin who revived her dream of becoming a painter.

 

After devoting part of her life taking care of her two sons, she begins her first drawing and painting courses in 1992.

 

In 2001, she decides to invest more in her community by offering painting and drawing workshops for children and adults, by sitting on a committee for a local festival and by organizing a variety of regional activities.

 

Since 2004, she has a total of a little over twenty collective and individual expositions in Quebec.  Her works are now part of public collections.

 

In 2015, she makes the decision to devote most of her time to painting.  To date, she works full time on her artist career and ardently wishes to see her artwork at expositions beyond the borders.

MY APPROACH

Emotion is my leitmotiv in the realization of my art. Drawing was for me a childhood passion. Painting was a dream for me that I cherished. Always wishing to upgrade, I don’t enclose myself in a particular style or theme. In most of my paintings, we find scenes of life where the child is put in value. I want to capture the wonder of a child, the splendor of a landscape or the enchantment of the moment present. In my portraits, everything passes in the look. I add symbol which defines the person that only the family understand the meaning. 

From one or more than one pictures that vibrates in me, or simply from my imagination, I start my drawings. My favorites canvas in large size format. The predilection of my medium is the oil and my palette colors are bright and illuminated. A first layer of wash is deposited there and I apply several layers of paint by smear, by glaze and even with a knife. Shadows and light are dominate in my procedure. I easily let go my point of reference to let the magic of colors finish my paintings. I use all the tools that are possible. Techniques from the old masters fascinate me and inspire me. 

I have this desire and passion of learning all the time to perfection my art.  Always go further where the real world meets the imaginary. With my magic paintbrushes, I would stop the time so that the spectator can fully immerse himself in the light and the emotion of my work. I wish my art can travel. But mostly transmit my sheer  madness to kids the artists of tomorrow. 

 

 

My artistic work is very intuitive because it is guided by contemplation and emotion. Art is for me a way of offering well-being to people through the expression of beauty and light. In this sense, the techniques of the old masters fascinate me in their approaches to the human and the real.

In addition to imagining my sketches, I sometimes work from a photo whose subject touches me not only to reproduce it,  but to change its environment, according to what she inspires me. The predilection of my medium is the oil and my palette colors are bright and illuminated. A fist layer of wash is deposited there and I apply several layers of paint by smear, by glaze and even with a knife. The game of shadows and light are omnipresent in my works. The canvas of large formats are my favorite in order to arouse this dazzle in the observer.

 

I don’t enclose myself in a particular style or theme. In most of my paintings, we find scenes of life where the child is put in value. I want to capture the wonder of a child, the splendor of a landscape or the enchantment of the moment present. In my portraits, everything passes in the look.

This search for the sharing of beauty and wonderment also translates concretely into my practice by holding art workshops for children. These still have this spark that I’m looking for, while transmitting my artistic knowledge to these creators or tomorrow, my practice feeds on their contact.
