:iconpaintersblock: Feature for Janice Blaine!
_______________________________________


I was lucky enough to discover the art of ~paintersblock, a very talented high-minded traditional artist from Canada. Every single one of her paintings is telling a story and her own spirit shines through. I was very fascinated when I browsed her gallery and I knew I had to offer her a feature. She really deserves it.

These are her current statistics:

Deviant since: 1 year
Pageviews: 710
Watchers: 43
Comments: 127
Favourites: 477 (for 53 works)
Favs for featured deviation: 12 (while it has been viewed 92 times)

I must insistently ask you to visit her page and leave some encouraging nice comments on her art. Also, please make lots of DD suggestions, there are plenty of works who deserves that award!!! Send them to: ^oilsoaked, ^limnides, ^snowmask or ^stigmatattoo, the guys who are responsible for the Traditional Art galleries.

Here are some quotes from her about herself taken from her profile:

"It has been said that one word can be worth a thousand pictures; that all creation begins with a single thought. It is within that idea that my work takes shape. My paintings are interpretations of the stories all around us.

My personal work is fueled by a passion for storytelling and a love of nature. While my paintings may begin with a specific idea, they often take on lives of their own. They explore the universal language of myth and folklore."

:star: Please NOTE: You can add this picture here to your favs to help it to be seen by a wider audience but I also encourage you to fav the original piece and other of Janice's works! THANK YOU!
.............................................................................................................................................................................

Janice gave me kind permission to display her picture in my gallery.

This is a beautiful tribute to a very talented artist! I agree with you that her work needs much more exposure here and have added several of her paintings to my next "Shamefully Underfaved" article.
