Celine Dion


Brian J. Michon
“Celine Dion”
Oil on canvas
2′ X 3′

“Here is an oil painting based on the career of Celine Dion. The concept was to show Celine in various stages of her career by merging various sections of images from her past up to present day. I wanted to create a portrait that was far from traditional, while still being able to keep a likeness. Painted as a tribute to a friend. I think I will do one more in this style geared to a different audience.

As well, since parts of images were used to base this painting off of and in keeping with Fair Use Guidelines, this work does not directly copy any full work of photographed material. The intent was to comment on said subject matter in hopes of documenting a long career by creating a new artwork whose concept is entirely my own thus eliminating any confusion as to the creator of the work.

Kenogamisis Raven


Brian J. Michon
“Kenogamisis Raven”
Acrylic and some casein
24″ X 36″

“This past summer we went exploring around town and ended up at Kenogamisis Lake in Geraldton Ontario. I had a lot of fun painting this but the water really tested my patience, which is what attracted me to do this painting in the first place. It started off only as a landscape but was suggested by a good friend (Shirley) that I should add the raven and from that point there was no turning back.”

Dancing with Clarity

24″ X 48″
(Portrait of Victor Chapais)

“When viewing the dancers, I often imagine them bravely working through their trials and tribulations, while at the same time giving themselves to the Creator. The conviction in doing so allows one to break through the mist and see things with clarity.”

Brian calls the painting – “Dancing with Clarity”.

Fancyman

24″ x 36″
Acrylic

Brian finished this painting prior to Christmas 2017.  The painting is called Fancyman, which happens to be the name commonly associated with this dancer.  His real name is Francis Goodchild.  Brian wanted to keep the painting in the same vein as his previous paintings which incorporates a colourful, abstract background with the portraits.
