Essence is defined as the intrinsic nature of something. There is a fragrant, emission in the air which we breath, the essence of the trees.
This piece required me to test my limits. I began with a knife, applying texture to the entire panel, planning the scene, and involving the wood grain at times. Next, pigment dispersion flowed over the texture revealing channels and pockets. Pushing my boundaries, I spattered a multitude of fluid dots, creating a pixelated approach that I had been considering. Finally, as is my practice, carving out negative spaces, with darks or lights.

The Canadian wild places are Jennifer Caie's subjects in painting. Her artwork is created as a direct result of time spent in Dryden, Ontario's wilderness. She also finds a deep connection while hiking the Canadian coastal regions. “Really anything that reveals the effect of wind on the land."
""On the water, or in the water”
This should be written on the transom over every one of our doors!
I do appreciate water in every form, whether frozen or fluid."
