"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

Second in the Serene Spaces Series. This is a new concept which I actually began in late 2006 with my lifelong attraction to serene, rather sparse interiors. I’ve always been enamored with18th century furnishings, particularly when reduced to their bare structural elements and set against a similarly stripped room setting, typical of early Colonial American interiors. The eminent atmosphere of such spaces recalls the countless lives who have walked their hallowed halls.

Thank you for your wonderful observations! When composing this painting, I was initially afraid I had too much blank space between the subjects, but when I added the shadows, it was perfect! Thanks.
