The Many Faces of Jennie Tomao
Jennie Tomao's work is a constant and refreshing surprise. She applies her characteristic jewel-like colors to every subject she approaches, but the method in which she carries out each painting varies as much as her subject matter. From Tuscan scenes to floral still life, from forest landscapes to elegant portraits, Jennie's work exhibits the same wonderful attention to light and form and the way the two interact with each other. Each work of art leaves you with a sense of calm and peace. Tulips in Glass evokes early spring days and the excitement of the new growth and life that the season brings. Jennie's tulips seem to embrace that new life from within.
While painted in a different style, Birch still retains that characteristic inner light. What might be a sinister dark forest in another artist's hands becomes a tranquil meditation on the stillness of the woods in Jennie's talented hands. It's no surprise that Jennie has previously won an Award of Excellence from the Pittsburgh Institute of Art - everything she produces is stunning!
Pale Pink Roses, Book and Horse is a sneak peak of a still life we'll be receiving from Jennie soon. It's light, fresh colors are so evocative, they make you want to just jump right into her painting. Let us know if you'd like us to call you when it's in so you can see it or any other of her works in person.
We can't wait to see what's next from this experienced and wonderful artist!
