Germain Courchesne comes from a family of painters. Three of his brothers practice this art form. Life can take many directions, so you never know where you may end up tomorrow, but this is part of the grand every day adventure of human existence. Canadian painter Germain Courchesne can attest to that. He has been residing in our country for the last five years, and now that he is retired he has taken up painting. Twenty years ago, though, he wielded not a brush, but words, to build bridges between workers and employers.
