Portrait of the Petitcodiac
by Daniel LeBlanc
Sentinelle Petitcodiac Riverkeeper
of artists inspired by the Petitcodiac River and its tidal bore created
a spirited work of art on Earth Day 2000.
From the Château Moncton balcony overlooking the river, artists
added their personal touches on the group painting as the tides flowed
up the Petitcodiac.

Animated by the life and the movements of the river environment, the
painting also shows the interconnectedness of all aspects related to
these tides and the Petitcodiac River Tidal Bore- the sun, the moon and
the winds from the Bay.
At the closure of the Earth Day Event, the group of painters donated
the painting to the Petitcodiac Riverkeeper organization from Moncton.
A permanent home for the painting will be found in the course of
this year, so that all who took part in its creation and the public can
have access to it.
