Here is an image of Jill Pankey’s newest painting that is now for sale at La Posada de Santa Fe.

I have been curious about the female form as far back as a young child and continue to experiment and exploring the figure as an artist today.  My message continues to grow and expand overtime, but my goal is to include an underlying theme about body image and personal meaning, while leaving the door open for the viewer’s interpretation.  Much of my work focuses on color, pattern, and movement, while celebrating all women and body types at any age. In today’s climate I see hopeful changes coming for women and in that direction I am inspired, by sisterhood, empowerment, body image,  humor,  and aging with abandon.   I am not sure where this investigation is going to take me, but I am still flying high and motivated to go where this exploration leads me.

Congratulations to Marie Hines Cowan who won The Jill Pankey Award in Painting from Manhattan Arts International – 2017 for her figurative painting.

“Marie Hines Cowan’s oil painting, ‘Erinyes’ resonated with me because of
her playful female figurative forms, dancing with abandon and running
amuck in her studio. After viewing her body of work, I was drawn to the
notion of allowing the ‘muse’ she describes as her inspiration, to guide
her colorful, skilled and confident compositions. Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’
may have been inspired by the muse, but Cowan’s contemporary colorful
series is a reminder that the artist is responsible to bring forth a
message of enlightenment during good and bad times. There is a warmth in
her color palette that draws the viewer into her canvas. Her work
motivates us to wear that confidence that she portrays with each stroke.”
