"This is a French horse farm, but the horses are hiding," explains Janet. She captures the gradient colors of dusk on the Provence landscape. The long horizontal format of the painting lends to the abstract quality of the work, describing the scene in cool and warm bands of color punctuated by the limited details of the barn and scattered trees.

Janet Dyer doesn’t like to spend too much time talking about her art, as she’d rather be creating it. She doesn’t have an artist statement, the traditional statement of purpose crafted by visual artists to explain their method. On becoming an artist, Janet simply states, “I picked up some crayons and pencils and brushes and kept using them.” She believes the process of creating art is equal in importance to the final product. The artist enjoys relinquishing control of her paintings to find delightful surprises in her so-called “mistakes.” Janet's expressively gestural yet bucolic landscapes are a testament to the success of her method.
