Blog Buddy Friday: Janell Mithani

14 Comments

JanellMithaniI’m going to leave the world of writing for just a bit as we visit some of my favorite artists. First up is an extremely gifted artist, Janell Mithani at http://janellmithani.com. Janell grew up in a rural area of the northwestern United States, but now makes her home in Southern California. Other than art, a couple of things Janell and I have in common is our love of gardening and the outdoors. I know when  I visit her blog, I’ll leave with a smile because you simply can’t look at her work without coming away with a feeling of happiness. I believe her artist statement says it better than I ever could:

“A world of radiant enchantment merged with the lush details of nature inspires me to create.  The reflective shapes of trees, often shaped by wind and rain, bring strength and presence to my canvas. Childlike memories of magical beings float through the landscape of my mind and fill my sketchbooks.  I explore relating the feminine sketches from my journal to the landscapes that come from my brush.  Their dance calls to me; therefore, I continue to paint.”…Janell Mithani 

I have always loved fairies so of course some of my favorite paintings of Janell’s are her mystical little fairies, but I also love her colorful landscapes and flowers. Janell not only paints, but creates beautiful jewelry and is a skilled photographer. Do a Google image search of this lovely lady’s name and you’ll be amazed at what comes up.

When you have time, go visit Janell. You’ll love her work. http://janellmithani.com

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2017.

    • It was my pleasure, Janell. Thank you so much. I would love that little fairy! You are much too kind. ❤ And don't worry about commenting. No one should ever feel obligated to comment here. 😀 I envy that 80 degrees, girl. We are still freezing , but I know spring is just around the corner. xo
