JEANNE ILLENYE antique putz lamb pull toy little gems oil paintings

Antique German Putz Lamb Pull Toy
6x6 inches oil on panel
Nostalgia is an indulgence which I hope to recall with this charming little pull toy, her wooly body, cloth head and bell tied with a frayed ribbon all depict details which many a child has handled and studied as closely as I have here. She’s seen many happy years being tugged along by a little hand. . . .

JEANNE ILLENYE lemons in blue and white oriental porcelain bowl classical contemporary still life

Lemons in Cracked Porcelain Antique Oriental Bowl
5x5 inches oil on panel
 jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net
 
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.

JEANNE ILLENYE contemporary still life oil painting green grapes spode blue transferware plate

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
8x8 inches oil on panel
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.
