Monochrome Soft Pastel, 22 x 28 inches
This painting was inspired by the history and scenic beauty of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. “Aequoris” is Latin for “sea”.
“When I was young, I believed…that painting was a sort of reaction which reconstructed the spectacle before our eyes, preserving our memory of it, or that it allowed us to reconstruct or imagine some scene which illustrated an idea. Now I think that painting is rather in the domain of philosophy.” – Jacques Villon (1875-1963)
