PRÉMONITION

JULIE-BRETON-VANCOUVER-ABSTRACT.JPG

This painting from the Émotions series inspired by the classic French novel Madam Bovary is one of my favorites. I had been searching for the perfect title for a few days when, on the eve of my 29th birthday (give or take a few years), a meteorite entered the atmosphere passing over Nelson to crash in the mountains nearby. It produced a flash of light and a deafening rumble only Thor could be proud of. The next morning I knew this painting should be called Premonition. This can only mean that the next 45 years will be amazing. Hold on to your hat Picasso!

Cette peinture de la série Émotions, inspirée par le roman classique Madame Bovary, est une de mes préférées. J'étais à la recherche d'un titre depuis quelques jours quand, à la veille de ma fête, une météorite est entrée dans l'atmosphère au-dessus de Nelson pour atterrir dans les montagnes un peu plus loin. Cet événement atmosphérique a produit un éclat de lumière intense et un grondement digne de Thor. Le lendemain, je savais que cette peinture devait s'appeler Prémonition. Je crois que mes 45 prochaines années seront les meilleures. Picasso j'arrive!
