Jan Boone grew up on a farm in northwest Ohio. She graduated with a BFA (concentration in painting) in 1975 and went to work at Gibson Greetings. Marriage and kids resulted in a very creative family, excelling in sculpture, theater set design and oil painting. She is active in art clubs, teaching painting at an art center, gardening and painting in her home studio. Her favorite subjects are people in ordinary settings, farm scenes and cats.
This painting is about reflection. The woman is reflecting on her past, and there are interesting reflections in the old windows across the street. I’m often captivated by people out in public. This subject was wrapped up in her own mind, thinking of another time.
