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

old world style oil painting dripping juice, oranges, grapes, pears, cherries on rustic ledge

Oranges on Rustic Ledge
20x24 inches / oil on canvas
Once again harkening back to an old world classical style oil painting, featured here are luscious oranges that appear to have burst forth in an artistic arrangement with other fruit on a rustic ledge.  All are accentuated by reflective puddles of dripping juice.

Pears on Rustic Ledge
20x24 inches / oil on canvas
A companion to the oranges above, this beautifully voluptuous painting of pears is  casually arranged on a rustic ledge with grapes, cherries and strawberries which are all accentuated by the tiniest white blossoms and reflective puddles and droplets.
