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

silver teaspoon wild rose from the seven flowers pattern

After several decades of collecting century old sterling silver flatware, I’ve amassed a diverse collection which will only now begin to emerge in an expansive series of paintings begun over two years ago. Reflected here is a studio window adjacent to my easel where I painted this teaspoon from the “Seven Flowers” pattern; presented here is the Wild Rose.

This series of silver spoon paintings is elegant. You really captured the detail without getting too fussy. Beautiful!


Thank you so much, Diana! I normally do tend to get a bit immersed in details, but working on canvas and painting thinly as I do, does limit the amount of detail that can be incorporated, hence it's not too fussy! :o) Jeanne
