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

Overturned Cherry Pint
10x8 inches / oil on canvas
An older classical painting of mine, which I just came upon and realized I'd not posted, is an example of old world style featuring an overturned pint of cherries on a reflective table surface.  The subject, composition, depth of color and interplay of shadows pay homage to the paintings of William J. McCloskey (1859-1941) whose work I admire.
