"heather""....absolutely beautiful print Heather. It will add grace and beauty to our home." - Janet Blanchard Most of the time Suchiu is commissioned to paint his paintings, but every once in awhile he gets to paint something just because something caught his fancy and he came up with an idea for a painting. This was one of those times. Suchiu did not use a model for the woman in this painting; he conjured her up strictly from his imagination. Although the woman in the painting bares much resemblance to his wife Colleen, he consciously did not intend it to be her. Many will argue this fact with him and conclude that he was obviously thinking of her when he painted this beautifully gentle scene. Suchiu’s story goes like this: “The feelings that influenced me to paint this field of Heather are just as pure and simple as the image itself. All of the wealth in the world cannot replace the treasures that nature hands over to us so willingly and without demands. It is up to us not only as individuals but as an entire race to realize the true value of this incredibly generous source and protect it at all costs.”
A Historic Moment for Suchiu and HeatherMarch 21, 1995 was an historic moment in Canadian art. Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien and U.S. Ambassador to Canada welcomed Ronald Suchiu, his wife Colleen and daughter Britton, accompanied by MP Jerry Pickard to Ottawa.
Artists and art publishing companies sometimes add small images to a print. This added pictorial comment is called a remark and is traditionally spelled in French as "remarque". Remarques can add exceptional value to an art-print. Some prints have been known to increase in values hundreds and even thousands of dollars more than the same print without. When purchased with Suchiu Art pieces these images are always in full color and are totally hand painted by Ronald Suchiu and it is common for them to include a personalized note, phrase or even a hidden message. Because of the small size and his attention to detail Ron restricts his remarque production to less than 200 units per year. Most remarques are rarely as complex as Suchiu's and are generally very quickly drawn tiny pencil sketches without color. When purchasing an art print with a remarque buyers should "BEWARE!" that some prints and art pieces have what appears to be a remarque on them. The image may be printed on at the time that the print was made. These offer no added collectible value. Remarque is a small original sketch, drawing or painting done by the artist in the margin of the finished print.
