Quiet Contemplation by Jaana Day
Clear

Genesis heat set oils on stretched canvas 20 × 25cm.
Years ago we used to travel lots through Gympie QLD and stop at a rest area beside a lagoon just before Gympie. Here my daughter sits with her thoughts by the lagoon :)

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.

    Do I get to see this one on Friday? Can’t wait to see all of your new work :)

  • This one now resides in Finland. I’m looking forward to seeing yours as well Di. Linda wouldn’t let me peak at all the paintings when I dropped mine off. I’m glad though, as Friday will hold an element of surprise.
