    Urban Doors and Windows

    Framed 36 x 28”

    Mixed Media


    “This abstract came to be using the colors of the 3 artist show coming in February, Naval and Bleached Coral.  I see the congestion of our cities in the somewhat jumbled composition.”

  • Snow Sky – Jill Danahey


    Snow Sky

    36 x 48″ Gallery Wrap

    Acrylic on Canvas


    I love aspen trees and going to Colorado summer to see them .  This painting evolved from a previous work that needed more.  I painted out the image and looked to the color palette left behind and saw these blue wintry aspen.

  • Across the Bay, Iceland – Jill Danahey


    Across the Bay, Iceland

    20 x 20” Gallery Wrap

    Acrylic on Canvas

    My daughter took a photo at the Arctic Circle in Iceland across beautiful water.  These vague building shapes  were softened by distance.  I was mostly interested in creating water layers and a misty feel to the land.

  • Grand Illumination – Colonial Williamsburg – Jill Danahey


    Grand Illumination, Colonial Williamsburg

    Gallery wrap 24 x 24″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    The first Sunday of December, Colonial Williamsburg opens the Holiday with three simultaneous firework displays in the park. At the Capital, the finale brought a waterfall near the ground and rockets above. The smoke was everywhere in beautiful shades of gray and aqua. The majestic ancient oaks lit from behind were amazing!

  • Castle in the Clouds – Jill Danahey


    Castle in the Clouds

    Gallery Wrap 36 x 24”

    Acrylic/Collage on Canvas

    “The collage papers and images suggested building shapes and I love using shades of white.  The result seemed to be a fanciful castle peeking through low lying clouds on a high ridge.  The copper seemed to recall ancient tile roofs.”

  • Water Lily Shadows – Jill Danahey


    Water Lily Shadows

    Gallery Wrapped 30 x 24″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    A crystal clear pond in the McNay Museum courtyard in San Antonio is the setting for this water lily study.  The underwater shapes and shadows were what interested me most, along with my favorite shades of yellow greens.

  • Trees and Shadows – Jill Danahey


    Trees and Shadows

    Gallery Wrapped 60 x 48″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    This stand of Aspen trunks cast beautiful shadows on the dry winter grasses below and I wanted to make those intersecting shadows my focus.  I also wanted to capture the sunlight playing on the trunks.

  • Aspen Shadows – Jill Danahey


    Aspen Shadows

    Gallery Wrapped 12 x 24″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    Lifting the Aspen shapes from the dark underpainting, I wanted to vary the darks in a whimsical way.  Adding sunlight makes the darks even more special.

  • Water Shadows – Jill Danahey


    Water Shadows

    Gallery Wrapped 11 x 14″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    A small study of reflection and light on gently rippling water was a neat color palette.


  • Sweeneys’ Oak – Jill Danahey


    Sweeneys’ Oak

    Gallery Wrapped 48 x 48″

    Acrylic on Canvas

    The Sweeney ranch sits at the beginning of the hill country in Morgan Mill. From the rockers on the back porch of the ranch house, one looks at this amazing multi-trunk live oak and layers of hills in the distance. I’ve painted this tree and view twice and have taken a dozen photos at all times of day and the constantly changing scene is a favorite.


  • On the Camino, Sarria, Spain – Jill Danahey


    On the Camino, Sarria, Spain

    Gallery Wrapped 20 x 20″

    Acrylic on Canvas


    My daughter and I walked 115 miles of the Camino de Santiago in Spain two years ago, after the loss of my husband and her father. It was an incredibly spiritual and beautiful time for us. There were so many panoramas and lovely churches along the way.

    This pilgrimage has been inspiring people for hundreds of years and was an experience of a lifetime for me.

    At my friend Jackie’s beautiful home in the hills west of Creede, CO, there is this amazing ancient Ponderosa pine tree, The branches lift up in arcs that create a stained glass window effect.
