Jana was the 2023 4th quarter featured artist at Lost Pine Art Center in Bastrop, Texas. Her solo show titled “Eye to Eye”, painted in the ancient medium of egg tempera are both hyper realistic and animated as she painted a whimsical portrait of herself in each animal’s eye.


Eye to Eye

Be sure to go see my show over at Lost Pines Art Center – Bastrop TX.

I got to be featured artist for months of September and October. What an honor!

I created 9 super realistic animal eyes – with my animated self portraits in each eye.

I’m happy to paint me out and paint you in. Please Go see.

It’s egg tempera and I get to speak on this, a nearly lost medium on Saturday Oct 7 at 6 pm – in fact I’m doing a demo.

Hope to see you there.

Kevin Jackson is an exceptional American Poet and has become a really good friend. He’s my brother from another mother!

He keeps us all safe over at the Lost Pines Art Center shown here with me in front of my bird painting.

I love meeting talented people. If you look folks, you find them everywhere!

Please read his poem titled LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO AROUND and go meet him and all the gang over at Lost Pines Art Center doing a great job representing local artists!

It’s Kevin Jackson and he’s a talent!


I can custom this art with your image in them instead of mine:

Please go see my solo show at Bastrop Public Library.

These painting are in egg tempura and photos do not do this luscious medium justice.

June and July – it’s show title is “Eye to Eye” and it’s a self portrait show.

If you buy an original I’ll be more than happy to take me out and put you in for an additional fee. Fee depends on if it’s a silhouette of you or full color caricature of you and that depends on which painting you buy.

If you can’t afford an original we can print to canvas and I can paint on top on there as well.

Anyway. Just go see the show. Please.

It took me 25 hours to complete each painting.

Eye to Eye

I’m glad I get more time with them as I feel that none are complete. However, I’m pleased, meaning I would show these as is, if I had to.

But I am so grateful I don’t have to as they all need work and I need more time with them, especially the octopus and the goat.

For now, I’m on vacation and I’ll get back to it April 1. I’ll paint as I always do on vacation, but it’s easy, fun stuff, like ducks, butterflies, and Apple watch watch bands. I’ll complete a pair of shoes I’ve been working on, too. Stuff like that.

I’ll sip on cocktails and meet potential art lovers, because I could not do this without you, my family of art lovers.

Thanks for everything. You pushed me to next level and I can’t wait to see the next, then the next, and what’s next, and so on… (lol)

EYE TO EYE – painted in the almost lost art of egg tempura – solo show Bastrop Public Library – June thru July 2023

Divine dissatisfaction: it’s meaning reworded to suit me: This type of dissatisfaction is divine because it works alongside gratitude and awareness. It’s when you are simultaneously in tune with the beauty you’ve created while feeling pulled toward the next thing. This is a yearning that comes from something deeper in your nature, cultivated by learning the mind of God, enabling your true Self to emerge.

In progress

Eye to Eye

My EYE to EYE show is really about me and my love for animals.

They are self portraits. Look into their eyes and you’ll see my reflection…

Yep, that’s me. I just wanna be friends with all God’s creatures. I’m like, “please be my friend. I’m nice and I try really hard to be deserving and worthy of your trust.” As we learn from the Bible in Isaiah 11:6, in the millennial kingdom there will be peace among the kingdoms.

“The wolf and the lamb shall graze together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall do no evil or harm in all My holy mountain,” says the LORD. Isaiah 65:25 (NASB)

That leads me to tell you about the images below; I’ve completed four of the five pieces that I’m calling Eye to Eye. The fifth piece is still in the ugly phase of the painting, but I believe it will be as engaging as the others in the group.

These pieces will be featured during my solo show in June and July 2023 at the Bastrop Tx Public Library. I am working feverishly to have them be done in time, and as a result I missed playing chess last night because of these guys. I’m so focused to have this done by the deadline, I can hardly keep track of the days.
