Artist: Michele Leveille (1951-2003)
Title: Serenite
Size of the original work: 20" x 28"

This artwork by Michele Leveille was created during the artist
remission period, while she thought she had won her battle against
cancer. It illustrates the 2005 exhibition for the benefit of the
Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation taking place at Galerie Pierre Seguin
from September 18th to October 8th. Galerie Pierre Seguin gave it a
very evocative title, since the artists left it untitled: Serenite,
as a message of hope to all women fighting against cancer, and in
honour of the patient care program of the Quebec Breast Cancer
Foundation.
