Oil on canvas – 2015

This painting of the Peace Tower was painted as part of Jeannette Tossounian’s on-going ‘en plein air’ series of the Parliament Buildings. It was painted on November 11, 2015 after Tossounian placed her poppy on The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at The National War Memorial in Ottawa in remembrance of her grandfather who fought with the French in the Great Wars after assisting in freeing his people from being slaughtered in the Armenian Genocide. The painting was acquired by Senator Kim Pate in November 2016 and is hung in her office on Parliament Hill. It was also used as the cover picture for Senator Pate’s 2016 Holiday cards.

Here I am at a lunch in Navy Hall presenting the painting to the Consel General of St. Lucia.” Jeannette Tossounian
