"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

 Baseball in the Spotlight
8x8 inches oil on panel
There is something we can all identify with when we see a baseball. It recalls memories of countless hours of fun as we played in the streets, the parks or the schoolyards.  It recalls the thrill of hearing the crack of the bat and feeling that impact as we made contact for the first time. It recalls the excitement of catching our first fly ball . . . of breaking in our first mitt. . . of the cheers from friends and family as we rounded the bases! So I celebrate those experiences here with a vintage baseball set in a much deserved place of honor, for the memories it recalls are priceless.
