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

 10x8 inches / oil on canvas panel
 Rich tones and low lighting enhance this charming nosegay which recalls smaller works by the Dutch Masters. Browning leaves and a Red Admiral butterfly communicate the essence of age as life passes through time.
