Abstract were my art studies, but the manner « Pluraliste
» is suiting me and my association with the CAPSQ gives me the
liberty to choose my way : generally “Abstract” in paintings and
“Figurative” in my drawings. Painting with “ink rooler” and
brushes. At 69, I continue my works in an acrylic serial called
“The Planet of cellulars”(2007-08). Will I have a Web site, maybe
? Meanwhile, see “Index of Cdn Artists ... by Lareau” and see my
artist cv and works on letter “B”.
