JEANNE ILLENYE Classical Floral Oil Painting with Bluebirds, Old Roses, Hollyhocks, Butterflies, Bees, Porcelain, Raspberries, Round Mahogany Table

Antique Roses, Hollyhocks, Bluebirds, Butterflies and Bees in Porcelain Bowl with Raspberries
20x16 inches / oil on canvas
Just going through some old photos to backup on yet another hard drive, my third now, as I have tens of thousands of files, most of which are pics, and came across two paintings I'd created quite a few years ago which I thought would be nice to share with you.  So many of my paintings never even get posted to my blog with my schedule, but if this one is already here, I think it's beauty and appealing subject matter warrants being presented again.  I do wish I'd taken a photo of the painting when it was completed, but there just wasn't enough time as the client was getting impatient for it, so this is actually prior to completion.   This was also painted prior to digital cameras so the details are quite a bit blurry.  Just looking at my painted rosebuds, I could nearly feel their rounded shape, hard packed with petals, the outermost barely beginning to peel open.  I'd subsequently worked those Bluebirds even more to the point where I could almost reach out and grasp them and hear their feathers flutter!
