Piece description from the artist
A dog sleeps peacefully in a dark room, illuminated only by moonlight. Seen from a lighted hallway looking through an open door, at the top of a stairway. The strong yellow & linear composition frame in the soothing blue, while the focal point of the painting, the dog, is painted only in black & white, like a calm amidst a storm.
Jonathan Jahnke is a freelance painter, illustrator, and photographer living in New Orleans, Louisiana. In an abstract style, Jonathan distorts reality following the school of "post-impressionism.":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-Impressionism He is most interested in capturing the psychology behind a scene than the exact details. He uses dark, sketchy lines over bright, primary colors to simplify a piece down to its essence. Jonathan draws inspiration from the color, architecture, and character of life in New Orleans, as well as his travels through Europe and Asia.
