A delightful scene! For Gisèle, a big fan of grouse, the behaviour of the female ruffed grouse represents the pinnacle of maternal instinct. Only five chicks are seen, but there are probably more under the mother hen. The flowers indicate that the action takes place in an undergrowth dominated by conifers: we recognize a Canadian bunchberry as well as twinflowers and mosses. The magic of art stimulates the senses, so much so that the scents of the forest are exhaled from the artwork. We even think we hear the chirping of the chicks, the clucking of the grouse and the song of other birds. This collector's photolithography is available on acid-free paper or laminated with frame.

Original painting available



Gisèle painted the original painting in the 90s, while the filming of the documentary The Grouse: An Exceptional Bird. Her observations of grouse behaviour spanned a long period of time, first in Parc national de la Gaspésie, then in Northern Ontario where a female ruffed grouse nested each year near the Benoit family base camp.
The original painting belongs to a private collection. This is a gouache on acid-free board, size 12" x 16" (30 cm x 41 cm).

Fine art prints to spread the beauties of art and nature

Each year, Monique and Gisèle allow the reproduction of a limited number of original paintings. They do this essentially to make the products derived from their art
accessible to all budgets, and above all, to finance the educational projects of the Society of Art and Science for Nature (SAS Nature), the non-profit organization of which they are co-founders.
