“I live in the midst of an enchanted landscape where nature is my inspiration. There I find beauty in abundance; varied, complex, sublime.  Rather than copy it, I study it, and breathe in its brilliance. Then I create a painting that tells a most beautiful story.” Jane Troup


I love to surf the internet and look at sites featuring artwork.  Just like being able to play a musical instrument, the ability to paint a picture has always fascinated me.  While I can picture in my head what I want a room or entire home to look like, I really am fascinated by those with the ability create a picture in their head and then using a brush and paints, transfer those thoughts to a canvas and it ends up being a work of art.  That is how I feel about the work of Missouri artist Jane Troup, the way she uses colors infuses her works with almost a light hearted feel that makes me smile.  First of all, I love her subject matter which is very much about nature and animals and the fantasy feeling you get and think how much you would like to be in that painting.
