Inspired

Lately, I have been smitten and inspired by the artwork of lovely, Jeanie Tomanek. You know the moment when you are in a blocked mode artistically and then you see someone's work that totally pulls you up...? Well, this has happened to me yet again. I adore Jeanie's color palette and expressive women. They seem strong, yet nurturing. They seem resilient, yet a tad fragile in their expression. Jeanie paints with such grace and intuition. I am so thankful to have found her work and connected with her online. Please check out her etsy shop. She has some amazing work......
Here is a lovely sampling of her work:



And here are a couple paintings from me that came after seeing Jeanie's work:

"Barefoot"

"Reflection"

these words are inspired by the poem from St. John of the Cross:
I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.
A rabbit noticed my condition and came near.
It often does not take more than that to help
at times-- to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing, so full of love that they
don't chat, they just gaze with their marvelous
understanding.
