Product Details

"Blueberries" is a painting that was inspired by Jennifer's uncle Norman Chartrand and his childhood memory of blueberry picking east of Camperville and Duck Bay, Manitoba in the 1940's. Berry picking is more than just picking blueberries, it is a teaching. It is a connection to family, tradition, land, place, time and the seeds of fertility. The seven branches of berries represent the seven Anishinaabek teachings (love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth) and our responsibility to the seven generations before and after us.
