Hi Jeanne,
this is a pleasure for the eye as well for the spirit. Thank you

JEANNE ILLENYE said...

Oh, thank you SO much, Mariano! I always feel that music and beauty nourish the spirit so I am thrilled that my work could communicate that to you! Jeanne

Beautiful - a very calming image (and purple is 'my' colour).

JEANNE ILLENYE said...

Thank you SO much, Rachel! This was actually a commissioned painting for a client who plays classical piano. It's meant to be soothing and yet uplifting for her new music room. ...and BTW, purple is my favorite color, too! Jeanne

A lovely design and execution. Do you also play an instrument?

JEANNE ILLENYE said...

Thank you so much! Yes, I've had many creative outlets, including ballet, piano (although I'd have preferred the harpsichord) and flute in the past, and it was determined that violin, which requires the most discerning ear, would have been a better choice for me. However, since selling paintings online for a few years, that has become my main focus and all other hobbies including music, needlework, etc. have fallen by the wayside. Jeanne
