"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

Lemons in Cracked Porcelain Antique Oriental Bowl
5x5 inches oil on panel
SOLD
 


While working on a commissioned painting of lemons in a classical arrangement, I found that I was particularly drawn to one corner of the painting, with it’s depth of shadows and reflective qualities on the bowl. Hence I decided to “lift” that corner and place it in a square format to contemporize it as illustrated here. A trademark characteristic of much of my work is an enhanced sense of time and age in my subjects such as this chipped antique porcelain bowl and dried, cut lemon.
