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

Your work is lovely. I think perhaps your handling of lighting and composition is what draws me in. The strawberries and the baseballs are my favorites. Will you ever do a chocolate dipped baseball?


...Now there's an idea for a still life! :o) Thank you, Dar, for your humor and your observation on my lighting and composition. I'm so accumstomed to painting huge, elaborate floral compositions, that when it comes to a more contemporized, simplistic composition, I'm a bit more challenged so try to work the painting with ebb and flow of light on my subject for added interest. Thanks again for your comments, Jeanne
