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

Blue Jay Feather Taped to Wood Block Oil Painting

Approx. 4x3 inches
After weathering quite a number of Midwestern winters, the triplex birdhouse that my father made for us when we relocated here was in rather desperate need of repair. Upon its removal, my husband discovered quite a pleasant surprise inside the top floor — a ceiling lined completely with brilliant Bluejay feathers! Retrieving one which had fallen out, I chose to introduce it as the subject of this painting as a reminder of the countless little House Sparrows who were born under its colorful roof.
