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

Creamy, Butter Yellow, Soft Roses in a Jar

4x4 inches / oil on panel

Light earth tones create a muted color scheme which echoes the softness of the roses.

This is a lovely painting and makes me want to brush those soft fragrant rose petals across my face.


Thank you so much, Diana, for your lovely comments! I too like the brush of a tender, velvety petal on my face or lips...seems there's no place better to appreciate their touch. Jeanne

I like how you cropped this one close,a very nice painting


Thank you, David! In fact, this painting was derived from another larger work where the full floral arrangement and jar were visible on a cloth covered table. I've always liked the abstract quality of cropped images. It suits my love of design. Thank you so much for your compliment. Jeanne
