    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

    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.

    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.

    Caught in the Rain

    Framed 21.5 x 17.25″


    We were literally caught in a rain shower while painting on location in Creede, CO. I hoped to capture the clouds hanging over the ridge and swirling above this lone blue Spruce.

    Blue Spruce

    Framed 17 x 21.5″


    While in Creede, CO, I tried to capture the feel of a stand of blue Spruce and their shadows against a rock formation, all over an orange underpainting.
