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

6x6 inches / oil on panel
Century old sterling flatware reflects a red room with framed paintings and me in a blue shirt.

Just a postscript on this painting: 
 It will be included in Sannie Terese BurĂ©n's new book about her uniquely interesting family history.  Sannie is a writer, freelance journalist and owner of the B&B Aeblegaarden in Denmark.   I invite you to visit her beautiful website featuring Sannie and her husband's charming Bed & Breakfast along with gorgeous photographs and prose about living spiritually and harmoniously with nature.  Also be sure to read more about the farm's history and much more. 
Wish I could magically blink and be there!
