Because Some things just go together. Peas and carrots. Sweet and Salty.

Landscapes and linen.

Because Some things just go together. Peas and carrots. Sweet and Salty.

Landscapes and Linen.

My, my there's just something about the texture of linen.

The warp and weft.

The rumple and fray.

To enhance it with distressing is divine. ( in my book of worn out things anyway)

Just enough gesso peeking through like a curious. raucous cat.

And then bring on then scenes.

Whether pastoral, sea, bucolic, forest, woodland, babbling brook, cascading waterfall or just plain moody or Hudson River-esque ....I cannot resist.

This Is just a small inaugural batch of original works mind you.

Perfect, petite-sized, loose linen backdrops.

Amongst my many, many plans and pipe dreams is to have loads and loads of these.

Surrounded by every conceivable scene, cloud arrangement, sky and earthen color combo

known ( and unknown) to man ( and woman).

I have just a few personal/diva requests...(demands?) to paint copious amounts :

-More time on my hands (coinciding with equal amount of more energy) -Four extra hands (but will settle for two, as long as they are nimble)

-More space, like primo studio space (as long as I’m asking!) just build me a huge state of the art studio, magnificent views , revolving Kraft food table and/or personal chef, massage on demand (optional)

-A huge do not disturb sign.

ok, well I did say pipe dreams.......

So here they are for your perusal.

All original, true one of a kinds.

Distressed, crinkled and rumpled (as linen loves to do),

raw-edged with just the right amount of fray to keep them from being too prim and pretentious.

Do as you please.

Hang them loose, frame them in.

Either way, I hope you love them as much as I did creating them.

Jennifer Lanne Where Women Create

If you happen to be browsing for magazines and inspiration and you just so happen to pick up a copy of the Autumn 2021 issue of Where Women Create ...

well, you wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit. Yes indeed! I’m tucked in among the pages of Jo Packham’s magazine Where Women Create.

In a self-indulgent prattle, I’m here to pontificate about the glory of jo Packham’s magazine.

It really does put us creatives in the spotlight and on a scintillating pedestal.

It pulls back the curtain to show what goes on behind the scenes in our studios,

lives and what inspires us as artists and creatives. Messy or prim it’s just the dose of inspo you’ve been craving.

You can subscribe at Where Women Create or place a single issue order straight away!.

Or the issue should hit the stands by August 3rd.

A heartfelt thank you in advance for taking a peek and supporting us creative souls!

I'm always a sucker for a good story. True or false, embellished or enhanced, no matter. As long as the characters reek of lore, romanticism, heroism, cynicism, narcissism. All the ”isms”

Please be the character development layered, complex, checkered and juicy.

As if held up to the light every flawed trait would be both messy and beautiful.

Intellectual with a slight tilt of mind-bending out-of-the-box-plot twists.

Heck, I grew up on soap operas where dramatic personae

had fantastical god-like names like

Ridge, Thorne, Holden.

They were bold, beautiful, young and restless.

Laugh if you must, but the more ridiculous the story the better.

Plus among the fluff and absurdities there was an unintentional deep message.

As if no matter how grim the situation you could prevail and survive anything.

You could fall of a cliff, drink poison or be killed off by your evil twin with plastic-surgery-to-not-look-like-your-twin

and then walk back onto the screen 4 episodes later all the better for it,

in fact thriving.

Oh, the optimism!

There’s lure to such crazy story lines riddled with obscurities.

Where one has to dig deep amongst all the fluff to find the meaning.

A hidden place where if you root around you can even unravel even the most quizzical Dennis Miller references.

So gimme flawed dispositions, imperfect demeanors, ambiguous situations. (quite possibly where my penchant for distressed finishes comes from, perfection being overrated, gleaming of unrealistic.)

So I just love a good story…go ahead, ramble on and as long as it tells a tale. Prattle on about figures who are ready to strike a pose like there’s nothing to it.

Make me a moment where heroism is the mainstay.

Utmost theatrical.

So, in this mindset my

Pictorial Collection was conceived.

Sprung forth from my head like the birth of Athena .

A collection laden with figurals and scenes.

where everyone is living their best lives.

Canvas pillow stories that can sit like plump bavardages on your furniture.

Petite printed backdrops to add that flavor and labrish to your walls.

Large portfolio-sized zippered pouches (or pochettes) to gossip about.

So tell a tall tale. Bedizen a bit, add some meaning, throw in a few mythical beings…my interest is peaked!
