This mixed media oil painting is part of the Power of Love born out of a desire to bring back peace on earth. It's a prayer. Yes, there's sadness and despair in her eyes but at her core lives a joyful presence. Do you notice the tiny dancer? Joy will prevail.

The canvas is hand-splined on the back with minimal staples and no bulky corner folds. Splined canvases hang tight to the wall and are often preferred by artists who display their work unframed.


California-resident and Montreal-born artist Ane Howard, an abstract figurative mixed media artist, tells an emotional and imaged story in the portraits and landscapes she paints. Using deconstructed form born out of the expressionist movement, bold paintbrush, and contrasting hues of colors, she imbues each brushstroke with meaning to evoke moods and ideas. Following a lifelong exploration of different art forms, Ane is dedicated to full-time painting. Speaking about her passion for oil painting, she said, "Nothing has ever fulfilled my need for self-expression the way painting does."

Ane's vivid oil paintings have been shown at various Art Galleries in California, such as the well-known Five 3 Gallery, Claudia Chapline Contemporary Art Gallery, Teri Lang Studio, and the Marin Society Artists, and Art Works Downtown. Her artwork has also been exhibited in the London Tube and Berlin Metro as part of Public Art. Her work is owned by collectors in North America and Europe.

Ane has an upcoming show at the International Art Museum of America in San Francisco.
