#126 – Wildness Calls …Alysoun W

“Wildness Calls” (Raven) is my second painting by Jeff. I had been so taken by Jeff’s style and his ability to capture moments and moods that I decide to contact him to discuss a commission piece. Ravens are an incredibly important icon to me personally, and I asked him about doing one for me. Jeff hadn’t done one before and …

#178 – Diamond Pine …Don and Georgina

Your piece was a retirement gift for my wife. We both love the Group of Seven, plus Emily Carr,  and how their works create a spiritual reverence regarding nature.

“Liquid”….Anne, Kitchener (#38-Liquid Maze)

I have owned the painting “Liquid” by artist Jeff Dillon, for several years now. It recaptures my heart daily. It at once evokes hope, anticipation, mystery, and allure.
