Isaac’s Way Art Auction and Sale – ‘morning sky’

with 11 comments


On May 27, 2016, the 26th Art Auction and Sale at Isaac’s Way Restaurant in Fredericton, New Brunswick will come to an end. Only a few more days to own some reasonably-priced art and contribute to a charity for children. For a look at the paintings still available, visit http://isaacsway.ca/art/.

My painting in the 26th Art Auction and Sale is a landscape of the Saint John River as viewed from the Nerepis Marsh. It is entitled ‘across the bay’ (24” wide by 20” high, acrylic on canvas, unframed with gallery edges).  The current bid is $100. I donate 50% of the proceeds to Isaac’s Way Kids-in-Need. To make a bid on this or other paintings, just drop in at Isaac’s Way in Fredericton or call 506-474-7222.

My submission to the next (the 27th!) Art Auction and Sale is of a brilliant sunrise behind our grey woods.  The painting, entitled ‘morning sky’, is 24″ wide by 20″ high, acrylic with gallery edges. This auction will run from May 27, 2016 to late September 2016.  The proceeds from the auction will go to sponsor Kids-in-Need for music lessons and I am donating 50% of the proceeds from my painting to the charity.

  1. It’s awesome how the restaurant provides artists with a wonderful opportunity to share their works while raising money for a very worthy charity. You are such a great artist–and I absolutely love how you combine your knowledge of biology with art to create works like Morning Sky.

    • Hi Sheryl. Thank You! Morning Sky is based on a real sunrise and the trees are part of the scene I see every morning. Sometimes the world just outside our doors is so beautiful!

  2. Both are wonderful, Jane. I love the way you captured the colors of the morning sky in the second one. 🙂

  3. Two nice paintings, Jane. I particularly liked morning sky when I saw it chez toi the other day. I have put in a bid on the St. John River painting.

    • Hi Roger. Thank you so much!! I love to go to the place on the Nerepis Marsh where you can see that part of the Bay … something quiet and calming about watching the ferry cross to Grand Bay-Westfield! Jane

      • Hi Roger. The marsh is just where the Nerepis River empties into the Saint John River at Westfield. There is a great bridge where you turn to the river road toward Browns Flats, and a viewing area where you can always see raptors, herons and other birds, not to mention the grasses and the scenery.

  4. So lovely…your paintings and others at the auction. What a great cause to help with music lessons. I was fortunate to have a few lessons when I was young. Didn’t amount to much ….. but knowledge of music can really make a difference in one’s life.

    • I took piano lessons for years and like to play for my own amusement although I make endless mistakes. I think a day without music is a lesser life.

      • It is a treat to hear professional artists perform. But even more so to feel the satisfaction and joy of yourself or friends plunking out/bellowing out a tune or two.
