His wide array of subjects range from pastoral, to abstract and from wild life to still life and religion.
Courchesne’s interest in painting began as he watched an art class while attending night school in Sudbury. He dabbled for 30 years as his children were growing up and was always looking for time to paint.
As a retired electrician, he was encouraged by his family to enter three paintings at the GNO Art Gallery where he sold his first piece.
Courchesne is a member of the Sudbury Art Club and had exhibits at The Lacloche Art Show, The Heritage Museum, The Pride Week Festival, The Freshwater Art Show, and The Massey Museum. Today his work is exhibited at the Family Medical Center in Sudbury.
The way the brush helps to produce a painting never stops to amaze Courchesne. He paints purely for the love of it. The power of the paint and magic of each stroke keeps his interest in painting alive.
The public can view the exhibit at STC from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, or until 8pm during the run of the comedy Real Estate. Phone the STC box office at 674-8381, ext. 21 for more information.
