'Weekend of Awakening'... Five Years Later

/February 28th - March 1st, 2009/ -

>>> The 'Weekend of Awakening', presented five years ago TODAY, was dedicated to the term that had never been used on this blog before -'The Norval Morrisseau Conspiracy'.

Among the information never before seen on the 'NORVAL MORRISSEAU BLOG' a series of signed 'Certificates of Authenticity' had been presented for paintings done in the styles that Norval Morrisseau used mostly during the decade of the 1970's. These legally binding 'Cerificates of Authenticity' were signed and thumbprinted by Norval Morrisseau as he personally handled and inspected the 'front and reverse' of each canvas painting for his identifying marks. These 'Certificates of Authenticity' were eyewitnessed during their presentation to Norval Morrisseau in 2002 and certified by forensic science in 2011 (click HERE & HERE). All of these genuine Norval Morrisseau paintings were signed by the artist with a dry brush (DB) technique.

From the very beginning of the NORVAL MORRISSEAU BLOG I felt the need to create a platform that will speak for Norval when this privilege to speak for himself was put in the hands of others that were only interested in their personal financial gain by putting the Legacy of Norval Morrisseau aside.

The following posts were part of the 'Weekend of Awakening':
