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

VOLUPTUOUS FLORAL PEONY-LIKE ROSES IN CELADON JAR (SOLD)


4x5 inches oil on canvas panel
SOLD
A serene painting of simple, voluptuous forms, repeated and strategically placed, bears a fluid composition. Here the soft palette further enhances the tenderness of the blooms, facing downward from their own weight.

jeanne, i'm so drawn to this one. Absolutely breathtaking -- the reflections are perfect and the color and shadows beautifully balanced. bravo!

Thank you so much, Jacqui!! I truly appreciate your lovely and insightful comments! I've been focussing on the interplay of color and capturing a particular mood in these small florals on canvas as opposed to intense study of realism and detail such as with my more contemporary still lifes on masonite panels. Thank you again for your comments! Jeanne
