My Daughter Janine

My daughter Janine has always been greatly fond of collecting huge different art works from several renowned contemporary and classical artists. In fact, you can clearly see her strong passion for visual arts, as shown by the numerous beautiful and colorful mediums of art that decorates her wall. Walking in her house itself would feel as if you are walking straight into a painting gallery. Ever since she was a young girl, Janine had always been a creative painter at heart and I know that she will always be until her last days.
Her walls not only function as a gallery for her vast painting collections, they also serve as an art exhibit that displays her personal works and canvasses.

Art Exhibit

This bold woman’s versatility and style made her enough to explore different mediums of art and still come up with an astounding and impeccable result. There is never a dull corner in her art haven. Dexterous and charming, these are just underrated words to describe this wonderful creation. Art is life for Jenn, and this is how she always treats her artworks, as if they are live creatures. She would take care of them like how a mother would take care of her children.
Upon learning about the tragic incident that happened to the masterpiece of the Renaissance Master, Raphael, Jenn grew more apprehensive about how the relative humidity in her house could take toll in her painting collections. This is because high humid and warm temperatures would certainly damage her paintings just like what happened to the Italian Art Museum.

This is the real culprit behind the damage of Raphael’s wonderful masterpiece “The Deposition”.
She would grow anxious if the high Relative Humidity and temperatures in her mini art gallery would warp the subjects on her paintings, especially those that are painted in wooden boards, instead of canvass. The main reason why there are warped paintings is the hot weather and lack of air-conditioning which dries out the wooden frames and the backboards of the painting.
Now it makes sense why her house’ air-conditioning unit is fully operational in all levels. For Jenn, a faulty air-conditioning unit is like committing a heinous crime to her beloved art collections and this something that she could not afford.
There was one bad moment in Jenn’s experience when her air-condition time, was broken and had to get fixed. I knew I had to intervene before she freaks out by recommending her to the experts in handling broken Air-conditioning and furnaces. As soon as we made the appointment with that technician, they were able to diagnose and repair the Air-condition Unit’s problem quickly, and even did some minor repairs on the broken furnace. Since that day, Jenn didn’t even have to worry whenever her house’s cooling and warming system stops functioning properly, because she has found someone she could rely on to fix it.
Anyway, since she could no longer find some space to hang new paintings on her wall, she decided to shift her interest to sculptures. As always, Jenn never fails to amaze me with her dexterous hands and her artistic capabilities. Her sculptures have fine textures and captures even the most intricate details of the subject. As a mom, you would definitely do all you can to support your daughter’s dreams and interests. So I decided to put up her own art gallery site so that many people will be astonished at her amazing creativity.
