The Wasps Nest, oil on canvas, 16"x16".  Sold.

There is something about this painting that makes me think of watching a play.  The perspective and composition are  strange, almost as if you are looking at layers of scenery on a stage that could be moved or pulled apart at any moment.  And if it were a play, we seem to be building up a little suspense.   The cat is aware, and the Gene Tierney character in the middle senses something, but the other girl is oblivious to her surroundings entirely. Oh dear.

    I really like the narrative quality of this painting. Very unusual and thought provoking.
    Love the adorable orange kitty looking at the wasps nest! But what’s the the girl on the left looking
    at in the distance? Hmmm…… 🙂

  2. I never cease to be amazed at the imagination and skill you display in your art!

  3. I really like this painting Janet. I agree with Josephine, it has such a strong narration to it. I love your choice of colours and tones. You are an excellent painter.
    Take care and keep up the excellent work.
