About Sylvie Levesque

As a young child, I was making pattern with a brush and water on the backyard balcony. When the pattern disappears with evaporation, I start over and over trying to capture the whole picture before it disappears. Tenacity, perseverance and rapidity I developed during that time. I am convinced, these qualities help me to achieve one painting a day during the entire year of 2014.

I like to treasure the ordinary activities in my painting, found the beauty in ordinary people. A lot of people asked me why I don’t paint faces in most of my paintings? My definition of portraiture is to capture the essences of the individuals without rendering the detail in the face. When I paint a person, I want to apprehend the expression and movement in my piece. Also, I let the viewer picture themselves or beloved one in the painting. Come to see my new umbrella series.
