Have you ever looked down on the water on a summer day and noticed sparkles and reflections of color? In this piece, my intention was to portray white water lilies blooming on a sunny day. When sun is  really bright the otherwise white flowers appear to sparkle with rays of pinks and oranges. This painting was created using a collage technique layering rice paper. It is coated with resin to enhance the hues and give it a glass effect. The painting continues on the sides and is ready to hang.

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.
