Miss Longueuil
13" x 10", acrylic, 2007

This is Josee. She comes from Quebec City. She has a wonderful profile. Since she is part Huron, I had to ask her if she would mind braiding her hair like a young indian woman. She acquiesced. She is proud of her Huron heritage. She ended up braiding her hair in an authentic Huron pattern, which is different than the common braid pattern. She lives in the city of Longueuil just outside the island of Montreal. To see how long it took to make this painting, click here.
