Jean’s painting was inspired by a book of Vermeer’s paintings and a chance encounter with a sleeping girl! She loved the idea of her taking a nap in the warmth of the late afternoon Fall sunshine and how she just fell asleep amongst her book and bag. Jean’s goal was to paint the warm sunlight and the feeling of a well deserved nap!
A post from the Informed Collector newsletter recommends Jean Canavan “Watercolors with lush, rich levels of color, movement and light”.
