Janet Dyer
Suffern, New York

Janet Dyer’s paintings grow from the post-impressionist traditions of Paul Cezanne. Her bucolic renderings border the slightly abstract and the intensely real. The ease with which she paints horizon lines is indicative of a truly great landscape painter. In her paintings, the foreground and background playfully add power to each other for an overall breathtaking composition.

Hi Jim! Thanks for looking! I've actually always gone back and forth on the continuum of color--kind of like going up and down the scale for music. I always like to have a little hot pink or orange in there, though. :)

Hey, Janet! I really admire the way you've started to add Fauvist-style hot colors into your expressive landscapes. Wonderful and very exciting work!

Thank you again, Jim! It was really thoughtful of you to post your comment here. I appreciate it (and I like to reread it!).

Hey, Janet... This might be called an aesthetic love letter because I've always wanted to tell you how much I truly admire your landscapes. I come from a graphic design background, both creating it and teaching it at ASU and it's your impeccable sense of design that make you stand out in this dime-a-dozen genre. You never seem to settle for "pleasing" or "pretty" but almost always have a powerful visual "motif" going...dark against light....curved against straight, etc., that is enhanced by simplification and your expressive, minimalist brushwork. I'm trying to say that I consider you a terrific abstract artist beneath your chosen genre. Many accolades and kudos, Janet, and keep those wonderful paintings coming!

Comments About This Piece

Countryside at the border of Michigan and Ohio. This painting is on masonite board and will need a frame for display. 

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Masonite board

Masonite board is a thin, smooth panel of highly compressed wood. If not already framed, most masonite board artwork will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
