JEANNE ILLENYE little gems oil painting nest eggs 6x6

Fluffy Little Bird's Nest with Eggs
6x6 inches oil on panel
This tiny little bird’s nest is actually painted life size, the subject being one which we had rescued from the ravages of Winter. For this painting however, I chose to add several eggs to symbolize the rebirth of Spring as it abounds just outside my studio windows; perhaps even the former occupants are contributing to the chorus I hear now. Having included birds and bird’s nests in many of my larger paintings, I chose to focus all my attention on this delicate little gem with its particular abundance of fluff. One cannot look at these tiny creations without marveling at their structure and pondering how we humans are not the only artists roaming this earth.

JEANNE ILLENYE triptych art oil painting silverware flatware wallace grand baroque

Wallace Grand Baroque Sterling Silver Spoon
Triptych Right Panel
30x20 inches / oil on canvas
...And here's the spoon which features forget-me-nots.  As is typical for me when painting silver spoons, my reflection can be seen here with eyeglasses, wearing a green shirt and my hand up to the canvas where I'm actually painting.  I love adding these fun little details that beckon the viewer's closer inspection.  Next up...the fork.

JEANNE ILLENYE sterling silver flatware wallace grand baroque triptych center panel of three oil painting

 Wallace Grand Baroque Sterling Silver Knife
Triptych Center Panel
30x20 inches / oil on canvas
I've selected the antique version of these flatware pieces as they all feature a different flower, whereas the newly manufactured pieces are all the same less refined rose.  This antique knife features the roses and buttercups.  Keep checking back as I'll have the spoon and fork done soon.
