Topography, atmosphere, and the seasonal weather of Cape Cod are the subject of my plein aire paintings. But when the weather dictates working in the studio, I usually turn to still life rather than working from landscape photos. In both areas, my primary focus is on color.
Jane Eccles, a year-round resident of Cape Cod, paints primarily in oils en plein aire. She is also an award-winning pastel artist and an internationally known papermaker. She received the New Jersey State Council of the Arts Fellowship for distinguished work in Printmaking.
Her art is in several museum collections: Provincetown Art Association and Museum, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, Firestone Library of Princeton University, Rutgers Zimmerli Museum, Newark Museum, and the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland, as well as many corporate and private collections.
