soul and purpose

"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

If ever a person doubted the existence of heaven above, I would challenge them to paint a hummingbird’s egg.  What incredible subtlety and pearl like qualities it has and such a lovely elongated shape with only two per nest for mother to nurture. 

(Please note that I never take a nest from nature.  I use photo reference and create a still life in my imagination whch I then portray as an oil painting.)

Looks real nice with the colors you used. I like your style.

Thank you, Venkush! I tend toward an earthy palette and mix all my own colors from just the three primaries; thus giving me more control over subtleties that way. I appreciate your comments. Jeanne
