Welcome To The Artwork of Irene Paian:
Paintings Alive With Color
Acrylic & Oil Paintings
Irene Paian has specializes in genre paintings of children in sunlit water scenes for many years. The candid poses of the children in action capture the playful spirit of the children. The sunlit sparkle of the water captures the moment in time. The crisp palette of colors employed in these paintings goes beyond depicting the scene . They immerse the viewer into the mood and feeling of the scene. While the artist has specialized in children in these scenes, they are not the only subjects depicted in her water scenes. A young couple and even a Blue Heron maybe the focus of the painting. She prefers acrylics for the genre paintings.
Still Life paintings have been a part of Irene Paian's work for a long time. Her still life paintings were traditional, characterized by dramatic lighting and the vibrant colors of the point of interest. The mood is peace and harmony depicted in nature's bounty and man's craftsmanship. In recent years, the artist has completed a number of still life paintings in a more contemporary style.
Recently Irene Paian has had two of these new still lifes selected for the Governor's Loan Program in Ohio. The two oil paintings, ROOKWOOD VASE I and ROOKWOOD GINGER JAR, will hang in the Governor's Residence until June of 2017.
