our unique daily opportunity to smell time,
to smell opportunity -
each morning being, a new beginning."
- Emme Woodhull-B├Ąche
“To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson



  1. Beautiful depth in this Jane! It looks like you are loving the oils! LOVE THIS!

  2. Nice painting! But let me say, that your brush paints somehow still in acrylic way even with oil, dont't you?

  3. Oh my goodness! This is just exceptionally fabulous Jane. It is gorgeous. And I do like your oils even better than your acrylics. They are just simply richer.

  4. Yes, you are definitely finding your voice with oils, Jane. This is simply stunning~~

  5. Saundra - I am loving them - I feel a real freedom painting w/ them!

    Rudhi - Thanks. I agree, the style is still the same with the oils.

    Thanks, Sherry - I'm glad you like this one! It's probably my favorite piece to date. You're right, the richness just can't be duplicated in acrylic, especially w/ the heavy texture I was using. Do you miss the texture though?

    Kslaughter - I appreciate that :)
