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.
