"With bated breath we await their song . . . ."
6x6 inches / oil on panel

The theme this month in my new group was music, and being that my studio overlooks the garden and fruit trees full of birds, my immediate thought was a nest . . . afterall, what more perfect music is there than Nature's melodies!

Your compositions are so wonderful. I love the little clusters of three in every piece. They are so good! I am so inspired after I see your work. These little eggs on the sheet music are exquisite.

Thank you SO much, Katherine! I almost always use three eggs as the odd numbers are best compositionally, as you undoubtedly know. Whenever I'd crop images of my large, abundant still lifes to show the zoom details, I found the compositions irresistible and began creating small paintings which generated that same visual tension. Thank you for your lovely comments! Jeanne

Casual Elegance - Capturing Nature's Transient Beauty - COMMISSIONS WELCOME

After dabbling in a vast array of subjects, I've finally decided to focus my new still life oil paintings predominantly on flowers which are my absolute favorite along with everything that can accompany them such as crystal, lace, glass jars, silverware, teapots and teacups contrasting with rustic, textural elements of painted wood, moss and nests. In other words, all my favorite things of beauty. As I state on my website homepage, "It's all about beauty in nature and antiques."
