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

Blushing Roses in Jelly Jar

Blushing Roses in Jelly Jar
10x8 inches oil
In this painting I've represented the freshness of Spring with a clean, subtle palette and informal subject matter. For me the major stimulus for creating this painting was actually the glass jar. The clarity of light within the jar and dewdrops contrast with the velvety soft petals. While simplistic in terms of design elements, the painting still follows all the classic compositional rules. A versatile painting in terms of framing, it is quite suitable in a rustic or classical frame style, light or dark. Overall, I would classify this painting as a nice transitional piece between classical and contemporary realism.
