Green Grapes on Spode Plate with Round Wood Box
4x4 inches / oil on panel
 
Derived from one of my larger paintings, this small cluster of grapes provided particular appeal in terms of its illumination. The quiet, muted color scheme and clean composition enhance the luminosity of the grapes, captured in the late afternoon sun through my studio window.

JEANNE ILLENYE baseball oil painting art still life realism sports memorabilia

 Baseball in the Spotlight

jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net
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.

JEANNE ILLENYE overturned basket of apples in long grass realism fruit oil painting capturing nature's transient beauty


Overturned Apple Basket
20x16 inches / oil on canvas
 
This painting is reminiscent of an old world ambience and implies a romantic story of a languid day apple picking, perhaps laying in the long, cool grass while selecting those without bruises (which I always love to add to show transience in nature) and sampling the harvest.  With attempting to follow the trend away from classical realism toward contemporary realism, I'd abandoned so much of my work, this included, until Alex Perez requested a painting for his gallery's fall show. 
"Happy Autumn!"

JEANNE ILLENYE apples and lace fruit still life oil painting 12x24 in.

 
"Apples 'n Lace"
12x24 inches / oil on canvas
email to purchase jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net
 
 
A delicate painting of red and golden Delicious apples arranged on a highly polished table.  The reflections within the surface add a lovely dimensional quality, all of which accentuate the gentle folds of a freshly pressed antique cotton tablecloth.  The hand embroidered cutwork lace with blue thread and embroidered netting edge are often found in antique linens.
