This is Home
To an architect a house results from a functional, thoughtful, orderly, rational process. For an artist, it is the portrait of someone who lives there or has lived there. It is a curious or familiar form which occupies the whole space of a composition. It is an element articulating a balance between sinuous lines and geometric forms. It is the star attraction one notices in an exuberant decor. Whatever its place, Ladouceur treated the home with loving respect and inventiveness as he strove to capture a new facet in each watercolor devoted to this subject.
