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

Something completely different for me, a white chiffon dress with the softest hint of baby blue in the satin sash, all accentuated with a butter yellow and white peony.  The crisp black and white theme is refreshing and presents this gossamer dress with an ethereal quality.  If you have a wedding gown, christening dress, baby bonnet that or perhaps a special pair of lace gloves you would like interpreted as a custom oil painting, I'd be delighted to create a gorgeous memento especially for you!  email jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net

I love this "dress portrait", Jeanne! So fun and a beautiful interpretation of a classic.

Thank you so much, Diana. I was thinking of this as a "dress portrait" also. When my client commissioned this piece, I honestly wasn't sure I could paint a dress as I'd never tried it and had no model (imagined the whole thing) but I feel more confident now and hope this same client will also commission her daughter's wedding dress!
