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


Continuing to feature some of the commissioned paintings I've done this year, here is another very large piece which was inspired by a smaller 16x20 in. painting of peonies previously sold on ebay. As this was significantly larger, I was able to comfortably add quite a bit more detail as well as the wrens which the client desired. This is the focal point of the client's room setting. If you wish to commission a painting, please contact me at

Thank you so much!! If you click the image you'll see a little bit more detail, although a lower res image. When the painting was completed, it actually became one of my favorites with those wrens! Thank you again for your comment! Jeanne
