Featured Artist: Jane Mick Jane Mick was born in London, England, but has lived most of her life in California. She began her career as a fashion designer but later in life worked as a graphic designer in the sign business. Jane has since focused her artistic talents to strictly oil painting. The Hollywood Dream As a landscape artist, Jane creates a calm feeling for the viewer. Her paintings reflect silence, solitude, and emotion, through her perception of space and shadows. The surface of her paintings is as important as the image itself. The texture of the surface adds dimension to the painting and within the texture you find colors that may not seem to belong, but give interest to the painting. The mood of the painting emerges and changes as the work progresses. Composed Page 28
