Jan Saia Still Life:
Jan Saia's masterful modern still life paintings are abundant with talent and unforgettable style. Jan Saia's innovative technique is part traditional painting, part sketching with a paintbrush dipped in color. "When I lay a color down," Jan Saia explains, "I usually lay it down knowing that I am going to put something on top of it that you can see through." As Jan Saia's paint is applied to the canvas, timing becomes an essential component in the process.
