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

What could be more refreshing than a jar of Paperwhite Narcissi set upon a sun drenched windowsill with a snowy scene beyond? The Narcissus is particularly dear to my heart as it is my December birth flower...and exudes a fragrance which is utterly irresistible. Nature clothed her in the purest white which echoes Winter’s clean landscape. Thus, the popularity of early forced Paperwhites has become synonymous with the new year and fresh beginnings.
