Juanita Bellavance, Riverbound, 2019, Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 48 inches
“Riverbound” 36 x 48 inches is a one-of-a-kind original, modern, contemporary landscape impressionist painting by Juanita Bellavance. In this highly expressive painting Juanita colorful oranges, blues and greens lend an impression of fish in water. In the nature-inspired painting, the viewer is invited to remember the “big catch” on that memorable fishing expedition.
About the artist: Juanita Bellavance uses her mastery of color and technique to create abstract landscape impressionism and abstract expressionist paintings. Having previously majored in music with a focus on performance, Juanita enjoys the freedom abstract forms of modern music and abstract art provide. She wanted to go beyond recording the obvious. The subject has changed but the depth of emotion remains. As with music that comes from the heart and moves the soul, her intention to create emotional impact remains the same.
Her paintings are a visual removal of chaos and disorder to quieten the noise of the environment. There is a deep desire to create an instant of pause and connection such that a feeling is experienced. There are layers of history within each painting that lingers on the surface, leaving a richness beyond the obvious.
