“MOOSELUNAR – ORIGNALUNAIRE”
acrylic on canvas,
dimensions: framed 34" x 34"
"I believe that the Amicitia monument is a noble gesture that will artistically portray the
longstanding special relationship between France and Canada.
I am pleased to be able to offer one of my recent paintings up for auction to help raise funds for the construction of this impressive monument, due to start in July.
The moose, noble king of the forest, has been a recurring theme in my work for over forty years."
