LA MÊME CHOSE. Day in day out we pass the same path rendering certain details of it invisible. We may see the same hills for years, but only when we focus on a spot do we realize a tree has been there all along. This watercolor study began with a walk on the beach looking at the “same ol’” with the eyes of a tourist, focusing, noticing the invisible. The flocks of birds that run alongside the waves became a single bird I wanted to name. I researched our coastal wildlife and ventured into this spotlighting of the common, the everyday. Looking at “La Même Chose” with new eyes.
Unfortunately, from the tiny western pobler to the magnificent whales, endangerment has come to almost all these species. There are many people fighting to keep these creatures alive and thriving ensuring future generations will enjoy “LA MÊME CHOSE”.
