Featured Artist: Janette Jones!

Red Geraniums, Sunny Window by Janette Jones  20×20″  Oil

Janette Jones. I ran across her work on Instagram. What a treat! I love the loose brush strokes. It’s fabulous that these pots have no perfect edges, it’s so much more interesting to me. She strategically places bits of light where it matters most, maximizing the WOW – be sure check out her work!

Really, is there anything happier than a beautiful geranium? I have always adored them!

Read a bit about Janette, from her website:

The comments heard most often about her paintings are “they make me feel joyful”, “lift my spirits”, and “they are filled with a sense of light and lightness”. As an artist who is constantly looking for the beauty of light in every subject, this is music to her ears. As a person who is wildly optimistic about life and positive about the future, she is thrilled her paintings reflect this “joie de vivre” attitude and bring joy to her collector. Janette uses a strong sense of design, personal color mixes and an intimate point of view to create her distinct style.

Waves – Port Clyde, Maine

View from cottage in Port Clyde

Years ago we rented a cottage in Port Clyde, Maine. It was located right on the ocean – to fall asleep hearing the crashing sounds of the ocean was heavenly. Every night we had wonderful fires (magnificent stone fireplace). It was hard to leave that place! The ocean, large waves, tides and surges are all such a miracle, aren’t they?

As I write this I have this set as my desktop image. It’s nice and peaceful – calming… I love the blues. Monhegan is magic, as is all of Maine.

Blessed!

The view from the Monhegan wharf looking towards Manana Island. I remember this photo… the sun was warm, the air was perfect – it smelled… FRESH! At times it can be so quiet (when there isn’t a boat coming in/going out). My soul needs this place, even if just for a short time. How about yours? Where is your special location to visit?

A WOW Sky

The color of this sky was surreal! The deep blue against the terra cotta roof and the light colored chimney. The contrast caught my attention. When we’re downtown walking I keep trying to sneak in photos and keep up the pace. It’s not easy, but some things I just cannot pass by without taking a photo!

Do you see what I see?

We were walking downtown and Fred spotted this cat. Did you notice it high atop the shrubs? I walked right past it, of course it was taller than me, so that’s probably why I didn’t see it. What a life this cat has! It seems to be a people watcher, ha ha…
