Piece description from the artist
An autumnal stone path leading to a traditional Japanese bathhouse in the mountains. The heavy use of reds & yellows, over the deep, cool purple & blue of the path are meant to be warm & inviting, with the almost hidden retreat of the bathhouse at the end of the winding trail offering a rest at the end of a long journey.
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.
