My intention for this painting was to show reflections of images on water. I wanted to depict movement, reflections and sunshine. I combined bright hues with pastels to recreate the feeling of being on a boat and looking out at the water. The painting extends on the sides. It is coated with resin to give it a glass effect, protect the surface and enhance the hues.

Getting to Know Jill

J. Concetta received her MA in Design from the University of Minnesota where she studied color theory under great artists. One professor, Marian-Ortolf Bagley, often said that a painting must work in all directions to be truly unified. So J. would test works by hanging them upside down, and in each direction. J. sold some paintings in Minneapolis after graduation, but went on to manage the ink and paint department of an animation studio. The intense hues of the inking technique, along with Paul Klee’s use of transparent color, strongly influence her current body of work.
