Divine Proportion

Price:
Commissioned
Description:
The client presented samples of paintings that he enjoyed and determined what he wanted the dominate colors to be. This was the first painting that he commissioned (of many) from Jan and her first contemporary painting. For Jan, the challenge included that the client lives in Dallas,TX and she's never seen his home. It can help to know where the painting will be hung and what the surrounding elements are.

Price:
Commissioned
Description:
The challenge presented for this painting was that the client wanted lots of texture and a very shiny finish. Many layers of modeling paste were used to make the elements appear layered upon each other. The client requested lime green, tangerine and blue. The magenta was added for color balance. Many layers of lacquer were applied to the finished painting.

Price:
Commissioned
Description:
The client viewed some acrylic on acrylic (plexiglas) paintings and asked Jan to create one for him. Using cell phone photos and e-mail he was able to convey what he wanted. Since everything is painted on the back, one of the many challenges for Jan was learning to sign her name backwards and how to apply the paint.

Price:
Commissioned
Description:
This client wanted something soothing for his office. He had some color ideas and samples of what he wanted to show Jan. Without knowing why, he'd selected a complimentary color scheme which is very relaxing and comfortable to be around. The watery feel also contributes to the overall effect.

Going with the Flow
Size:
48" x 36" Acrylic on Acrylic (Plexiglas)
Price:
Commissioned
Description:
Another acrylic on acrylic challenge. These paintings must be painted flat and start with the lightest and most transparent layers of paint. Each layer takes a day to dry and cannot be viewed until dry. Unfortunately, it is impossible to represent the finished painting in a photo. They are incredibly glossy and vibrant.
