The photograph shown below was Jane's record of a scene from her window that struck her as beautiful—the spring color and misty morning light of her garden. The technical limitations of the camera's contrast range prevented the correct exposure of both the darker inside of the house and the bright outside light of the garden. Plus, there were a few distracting elements in the foreground. In Jane's own words, the photo needs some work.

Jane is a long-time resident of France, arriving in 1973 from Scotland to finish her studies in Ecology and work for UNESCO. Now enjoying retirement, she spends time doing exactly what makes her happy—gardening, cooking, walking in the country, and painting. For her, painting is an expression of her love for life and the allure of nature. To communicate these feelings and this beauty to others is one small way to make the world a better place.
