After seeing all that wonderful canoeing equipment, I happened to get in touch with him hoping to get more info about his light blue canoe. I just found the colour such a lovely contrast in the deep green forested region of his journey. Turns out the canoe is "Al Gordon" model ( 14'6" ) built by McCurdy and Reed out in Nova Scotia. It just so happens there is a wonderful backstory to his canoe built for him in 2013 which Réjean wrote about in an post HERE
Réjean also sent me a few thumbnails of his canoe-specific paintings and with his permission, I've posted them below.
His vimeo channel has another older video featuring a familiar scene to many hardcore river trippers - dragging the canoe upstream...
Turns out he replicated a scene from this vid into another pretty painting.
Also turns out Réjean does some illustration work for books. Here is a cover for a tri-lingual pulblication (Mi'kmaw, French, English) from 2012. Turns out my c1849 Passamquoddy replica featured on the header of my site served as a bit of artistic inspiration.
Very much looking forward to more tripping videos and artwork from Réjean in the future.
