Laliberte says his “favorite medium is soft pastel, and because of my love of nature and
the outdoors, my subjects are mainly scenes of local landscapes. i work often
on a series of paintings on the same subject – a wonderful way to learn the subject ‘in
depth’. Intrigued by the sky from childhood, it seemed like the time to do
a sky series – I have limited my observations and paintings of the sky to a “from dusk to dawn”

Regarding the exhibition, Rossetti-Bailey says: “Like so many other events during the 18
month, this exhibition, initially scheduled for July 2020, was postponed due to the
pandemic. Life as we all knew it had come to a screeching halt and many things were
left aside. The title of this program Unfinished addresses this theme and the
many paintings I have worked on before and during the last few months … and the many others
still to paint!
