"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

Glistening Fruit in Spode Bowl

This chipped and cracked Spode Blue Italian bowl sets the stage for a luscious painting, rich with glistening cherries, blushing bruised pears and a cascade of ripening red grapes set against a torn, antique floral tapestry.  You can see that the inspiration for this was from an older painting of mine entitled "American Goldfinches" which is shown in the following post.
