Le Voyageur - Voyageur figure by Michael Dumas
  Le Voyageur  (2009)
Subject: Voyageur figure
Dimensions (inches): 10 x 8
Medium: Oil on Prepared Panel
Description: Inspiration for a painting can come unexpectedly, and sometimes with surprising force. The model for this painting is Jeremy Ward from the Canadian Canoe Museum, someone who has immersed himself to a remarkable degree in the lore of the voyageur. When dressed the part he convincingly BECOMES one of the hardened men who made the early North American fur trade a reality. Somewhere in the indefineable but readily sensed impression of what it must have felt like to be one of these men lies the inspiration and directional force behind the painting.
