This painting is part of a series depicting lake reflections at sunrise and sunset. My intent was to capture a luminous sunset on water. I used intense hues, thin lines and complementary colors to portray that glowing feeling of experiencing a sunset at the lake. I created this painting by layering transparent inks and dyes on rice paper over canvas. It is coated with resin to enhance the hues and give it a glass effect. It 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.
