Artwork by Raymond Caouette. Fierte
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Quote from the artist: "La douce folie c'est de se permettre de peindre ce que je ressens."There is something quite warm about this painting in spite of the snow on the ground. This painting will cool you off on a warm hot humid day.
Born in Rouyn-Noranda, Abitibi in 1958, Raymond Caouette is the youngest of a family of four sons. A self-taught painter, he became interested in drawing at a very young age, and quickly mastered the artistic techniques that would be the basis for his distinctive style: vivid colours and bold brush strokes representing vast natural landscapes.
He grew up surrounded by lakes and trees and is profoundly touched by nature. Since 1979 he has painted the landscapes of the Abitibi, Charlevoix, regions of the province of Quebec, the Outaouais Region, and most recently the Western Rocky Mountains.
Over the last several years, he has had numerous exhibitions and has received awards and recognition for his work. He continues to teach art to others, while persevering in his efforts to perfect his own technique. Appreciated by an ever growing public, Raymond Caouette’s work is found in numerous private and corporate collections throughout North America.
