Waves of Empathy: Emily’s Painting Honors Hurricane-Devastated Port aux Basques
Fouchard Designs co-founder Emily is not just an artist, but a beacon of hope and empathy in her community. Her latest painting, which depicts huge waves crashing onshore with a distant iceberg, is a testament to her compassion and civic responsibility.
Emily painted the artwork with an accompanying poem dedicated to the people of Port aux Basques, Newfoundland and Labrador, who were severely affected by hurricane Fiona. The poem captures the spirit of the community in the aftermath of the hurricane, reminding everyone that they are not alone in their struggles.
The painting was later auctioned off at a large fundraiser for the town, where it helped raise funds for the rebuilding efforts. Her contribution was a testament to the sense of community that Emily’s painting helped foster, and it demonstrated the power of art to bring people together.
Emily’s painting is not just a work of art, but a symbol of hope and empathy. It serves as a reminder that even in times of crisis, we can find strength and support from those around us. Her dedication to her community is a true testament to her character and the values that she holds dear.
At Fouchard Designs, we are proud to have Emily as our co-founder, and we are committed to supporting her artistic vision and her dedication to the community. We hope that her painting will continue to inspire others to show empathy and compassion in their own lives.
Force of Nature
A Beauty to behold,
Quiet strength & fierceness,
A fury unleashed when prompted.
Provisions provided with grace,
Quickly rescinded without notice.
Time to Pause,
Dance with the wind,
Stillness celebrated with caution.
Quiet she beats.
An elegance reclaimed,
Poem by Emily Fouchard
