September 17, 2015 ‘Outside-In #3 – Far from the Sea’ Jane Tims


I have submitted another painting to Isaac’s Way Restaurant, for their 25th Art Auction and Sale.  This event will run from September 27, 2015 to late January, 2016.  The proceeds from the auction go to sponsor kids-in-need. My latest painting is titled ‘Outside-In #3 – Far from the Sea’.


The painting is the third in a series of still life paintings I have done about the many elements of nature we bring into our homes.  This includes items collected on walks, motifs on fabrics and metals, small statuary and so on.  My first painting in the series was ‘Outside-In’, a Chinese dragon hiding behind a glass cloche. The second painting was ‘Outside-In #2’ , a still life of a potpourri jar.

For the new painting, I used Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt Umber, Titanium White, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Yellow, Quinacridone Magenta and Cadmium Red.


If you are in the Fredericton area, please drop in to Isaac’s Way. Their food is delicious and over fifty artists have their paintings on display. Bid and you could take home a piece of original art!

  1. If I had the wherewithal and the freedom to pick up and go, I would plan a trip across this huge country to be in Fredericton to go to Isaac’s Restaurant and see your work and the work of fifty other artists. Beautiful! Many thanks for sharing on your blog so those of us who can’t be there in person can appreciate your work.

    • Hi Fran. Thanks. I wish you could drive here on that cycle of yours. I like seeing the three paintings together although they have never been in one room together! Jane

  2. I love all three of these paintings, Jane, but most especially ‘Far from the Sea.’

    • Hi Robin. I think I like it best too. It’s funny, because while it was on the easel, unfinished, I hated it. But once I got the berries and shadows added, I loved it. Jane
