Here's a little diddy....




Here is an artist statement for this work....  Janae Easton is based out of Tallahassee, FL. Her work swims through many different mediums, from prints to cloth and most recently murals.  Her recent mural The Trumpeting Flower at North Florida Community College is a unique example of her love of color, shape, and line.  When her work is on a small scale it is often thought to be needle work even though it is really made up of lines using pens.  In this large painting we can see the reference's to folk embroidery designs, Hungarian, Scandinavian and even Mexican.  The color choices also enhance these feelings.  The history of women's craft is very important to Janae, she embraces even the smallest treasures such as an old doily as a significant reminder of the need for creating.  For the need of pleasure in what we create.  She is honored to be able to paint something that shows her voice and at the same time conjures up many women who came before her.  The mural painting allows for the artist and community to come together in a quick moment, allowing a flood of emotions, remembering shared histories and curiosity.
