Winter fog and frost create mysterious veils of soft color and atmosphere. I applied thin layers of acrylic and silver spray. I then worked into the surface with a potter's needle tool to inscribe fine lines.  More layers of paint were applied to bring color and definition to the lines.  This artwork comes in a custom wood frame.

Getting to Know Janine

Janine’s abstract artworks are created with measured doses of both intuition and analysis. “My work develops as a series of calls and responses,” she says. She adds color, letting gravity pull the paint around. She then responds to the direction of the composition with additional marks, adding and subtracting. The incorporation of recognizable forms, specifically letters and numbers, indicates the influences of Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg on Janine’s work. Janine is also inspired by listening to jazz music. She is a musician herself, and plays in a local Zimbabwean marimba ensemble when she’s not painting.
