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

classical oil painting floral peonies queen of night purple black tulips pink rose creamware ginger jar vase boy with deer fawn

20x16 inches / oil on canvas
These "Queen of the Night" tulips with their beautiful sheen, provide an interesting interplay of contrasts against the white peonies, creamware vase and linen cloth, as they almost recede into the background where they play a supporting role. Completing the classical flow of the composition is a thorny rose. Two honeybees, wings glistening and hind legs full of orange pollen, are the finishing touches to this Spring arrangement.
