Piece description from the artist
A post-impressionistic view of a tree in a backyard garden. The strong, bold colors, relying heavily on whites, greens, & reds, are meant to combine with the motion on the heavy lines, to give a feeling of life & energy, but with an overall feeling of peace & tranquility.
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.
