Artwork

Known for her sensitive paintings of trees, artist Jill Poyerd aimed to capture a broad aging sycamore in a valley during a winter sunrise. "The piece communicates a combination of the grandeur of the tree and the cool, quiet moment of the morning through broad glazes of soft color and delicate brushwork," explains Jill.

Jill E Poyerd brings "peaceful, contemplative moments" to life on the canvas. She approaches the canvas with little preparation, instead allowing herself total freedom to create. Both her watercolor and oil painting works depict gorgeous scenes of nature with a style distinctly her own. Something as common as a tree appears soft and ethereal through Jill's painterly style.

I'm so pleased to hear how much you enjoy the painting, M Dawson! I stumbled upon that tree while taking a long walk one afternoon, and was absolutely struck by its beautiful lines and structure. It was a joy to paint.

I just received a fantastic painting from Jill Poyerd - "Mountain Range II." I was a bit nervous purchasing a panting online, but this painting met all my expectations. Beautiful and excellent quality. Perfect shipping and receiving in excellent condition. Am very, very happy with my purchase.

Today’s professional-grade paints and papers (which is all I use) are rigorously tested for lightfastness (aka how they resist fading under normal circumstances). A professionally painted watercolor framed with UV-filtering glass or acrylic should last for many generations without deterioration. My Products: Typically, I paint my watercolors on Arches 300lb cold-pressed 100% rag watercolor paper, a paper that’s been in production in France since 1492. This paper is designed to meet gallery and museum longevity requirements. In fact, most professional-grade watercolor papers reflect the same high quality. In addition, I personally make it a point to only select paints that meet the highest lightfast ratings within each brand, meaning the color should remain unchanged for over 200 years. Of course, any work of art or valuable document should be kept out of direct sunlight due to the bleaching power of direct light beams.

Thank you, M. Stanton. Very kind of you...

Just Gorgeous! You have such a gift! A delight to the eye!

Over the weekend, I visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in order to see their special exhibit on Andrew Wyeth - one of my favorite artists. Every time I visit an art museum, it occurs to me that in addition to archaeology and written text, artists have had a prominent role in teaching us about the past. Through historical paintings, we gain insight into prior culture and customs. Little did they know how much their work would impact future generations.

Jill Poyerd 8/8/2014 | 4:52 PM

Y Durr, I’m so glad it’s safely in your possession and that you’re pleased with the piece. My husband and I occasionally pass that tree on our evening walks. Whenever we do, I continue to be struck by its size and how it towers over us. What a pleasure it was to paint it. Again, I’m so pleased that you enjoy it.

Y Durr 8/8/2014 | 12:28 AM

We just received the painting and it's beautiful as it was pictured online. You're clearly a very skilled artist. Looking forward to getting this framed. Thank you!
