Jane Dillon Wingfield – Local Artist

I want to share my birthday gift with you right now.  My friend and book group sister Jane Wingfield offered me a print of her lovely art as a birthday present, because I so enjoy her work and being in her good company, and because I was overjoyed by her offer, I requested to be a bit greedy and share her art here and give you the link to her blog where she shares even more of her drawings. Jane said, Yes!

Jane is off to Connecticut to celebrate her daughter’s wedding.  I did a piece about Lianna and her Juvenile Diabetes fundraiser earlier in the summer right after the 4th of July, when we were celebrating Jane’s Birthday, which is on that day!

Every week I go to our Farmer’s Market from April to December and I do so love how Jane’s sketches capture the joyful energy.  There is a touch of whimsy to many of her sketches that produce a feeling of delight for me.

Jane works full time for the State of Washington and has shared her wisdom with 3 amazing children and numerous pets and critters.  Her partner John travels all over the earth helping Unity Churches develop and grow.   She is a high energy person and enjoys being with people, she asks the tough questions and laughs easily to keep us from becoming bogged down and uninspired.

I loaned Jane my Foley Food Mill, because she was making Apple Butter to share with all the guests at the wedding.  She also gave me a jar – yum.   She returned my pan so shining and scrubbed, I seriously considered asking her to assist me in cleaning up my other cookware!

Wasn’t this a great birthday gift?

Her enthusiasm for living is infectious.

Do you have a favorite local artist who helps you in joy your community?  Are you drawn to the art? Looking forward to your comments.

    Indeed agreed! The greatest gift… an authentic expression of creativity. That is as good as it gets in my book. A great opportunity to appreciate the miracle of friendship and the infinite blessings the universe is ready to dole out. My favorite artist is my blog illustrator Nicholas, who also does his own abstract paintings. We inspire each other to reach higher and higher creatively.

    thanks for your comment. I wanted to share Jane’s lovely work because it just delights me and I thought it would inspire others too.
    I like that she belongs to a sketcher’s group and think I will join a group that likes to sing….good deep breathing and change of pace. Action for creativity.

    I hope you popped over to her site to see her other works…it was a lovely birthday gift.

    I enjoy seeing your paintings too and reading your words – all this talent on the Internet just a click away – breathtaking

    These are beautiful, Patricia. I love art. I never thought I would, but that was before I ever truly connected with a painting. Then pow. I can’t ever go back… Artists have a way of showing us what’s inside of us. They mirror back our energy in the most beautiful and profound ways. I’m double impressed, because I can’t draw to save my life. This reminds me, I was going to buy this gorgeous little piece a few months ago and forgot to… Eek! Thanks for the reminder!

    You are welcome for the reminder and yes art brings my vibrational levels right up…and having it on the computer means I can bring it to my eyes in so many ways – I rejoice in art ; I have not wall space left to hang another piece.

    My living room is full of my partner and children’s work…and a piano for that celebration of expression

    I am so fortunate in so many ways.

    Hi Patricia! Lovely art – lucky you! Just attended the biggest annual art fair in our city and sadly the gal who does gorgeous, huge paintings of our Riverwalk and town was not there this year. In fact the fair had about half of the artists who usually go in absentia. Could be a sign of the times I guess.

    In my more prolific painting years, my best sellers were paintings of the Chicago skyline, done in abstract. I think people like to have familiars around them, don’t you? Oh gosh just this recent exposure at the art fair and your blog give me the itch to paint again! I have had ENOUGH painting walls and woodwork lately to clog up creativity! So many creative ideas I need another lifetime to pursue!

    Our Arts Walk is coming up in October…we have just celebrated Sand in the City Sculptures….and then Seattle has Bumbershoot Arts Festival Labor Day Weekend and we have Wooden Boat Celebration….
    Our little city is quite the arts center….Downtown is full of artist’s lofts and there are many people sketching, drawing, dancing and making music around town.

    I am looking forward to seeing you work up on line…Come on, get those paint brushes and pastels out and in motion

    suZen Reply:

    I’ve been to Seattle many times to visit my best friend – it’s one of my favorite downtowns ever! I’d move there in a flash if I could. (She has since retired from Boeing and lives in rural eastern Republic.)

    Don’t hold your breath to see my paintings on line. These days I just paint for my friends and family and to fill up my own 2 houses. I was fortunate enough to sell off my “inventory” years ago. I miss painting but have filled my life with so much else that something had to go. I dabble just enough to avoid complete withdrawal pains, :)

    My husband only has time to paint on Christmas Day and I post his work on Biking Architect each year….so far one of the children has taken his work to add to their living space. We just do not have wall space and we have quite an inventory of paintings in the attic that need homes

    Beautiful art. Lovely sounding person, full of life, yet not afraid to ask the tough questions. My kind of gal, she sounds like!

    That Regents Park looks like one could step right into it.

    I think you would enjoy Jane very much – you are both so creative and able to express your art so fully.

  8. Patricia Says:

    Jane is just home from her daughter’s wedding and wanted me to let you know that the Regents Park painting is not one of her pieces and she is not sure how it got on her blog site…

    I do not know who it belongs to…FYI

    patricia Reply:

    the Regents Park Painting is by Dan Seng…

    Glad we found out who it belongs too
    He is with Seattle Sketchers

  9. Jane Wingfield Says:

    Thank you so much, Patricia. I appreciate your kind words.

    I’m also compelled to give credit where credit is due. The sketch of Regent’s Park was done by Dan Seng of Urban Sketchers in Seattle. I’m thinking you may have inadvertently pulled the image off the Seattle Urban Sketchers’ site rather than mine. Just want to give Dan the credit for his wonderful work.

    patricia Reply:

    Thank you for coming by and I was happy to do this post and share your lovely work.

    I am giving Dan Seng credit and it is very nice to know his name and where he is from.

    Yes, I think we did pull that painting off the Seattle Sketchers link.
