The Letter by Jaana Day

Still life that I set up with a letter from my Mum, candles made by my Son in a candle stick from Finland, cup from my Daughter and a rose from my garden in a vase which my Mum gave me. Heat set oils on canvas panel 30cm x 40cm.

Drawing has always been a part of how I express myself. In 2004, I began painting with acrylics. Since 2008 I have mostly used Genesis heat-set oils.
Colour excites me and especially the way light plays on colour. All subject matters are potential paintings but I do prefer to have some sort of emotional connection with what I paint.

    This is very impressive Jaana! I love the way the colours in the cup are echoed throughout the painting. (I think I’ve got a cup like that)! You have also captured the brass candlestick very convincingly. Beautiful work.

  • Thank you Lynda :)
