By constant observation, Ouellette strives to understand the Ocean’s mysterious magnetism. Water embodies the concept of endlessness, of complexities repeated from one drop to the vast sea, so powerful yet so very fragile. Those fleeting traits impress only on memory. She paints the Ocean as the mind understands it – not a precise recording, nor the rendering of an impressionist’s flourish, but something between the two. Jaye’s work is built around those singular details, focusing on creating movement and luminosity. Her depictions are purely of water, without land, sky or scale, one is lost, consumed, ensnared. The paintings capture a slice of time that the ocean will never again replicate. Ouellette notices these moments through visceral reflex. These are the elements that move and compel her to depict the Ocean. Jaye paints the sea itself, caught in its persistent motion, a meditative reflection on this ancient body, at times so violent and other times so serenely beautiful, that has birthed legend, tragedy, life.

Jaye will also be unveiling a new series of paintings ‘Fire on Water’

These paintings are a continuation of Ouellette’s exploration into colour, light, movement and water. Water and fire are seen as living entities that possess a will and a spirit of their own. Both are beautiful, mysterious and dangerous. Both are in constant motion. The fire flickers, sparks and moves with the wind. Reflected in the shifting water the colour itself floats and changes constantly with the shifting movement of the Ocean.

Dear Friends,

I have participated in Paint The Town in Annapolis Royal for the past 23 of its 24 years. It is the major fundraiser for Annapolis Region Arts Council. This area was my prime art community when I lived in Port Lorne and I look forward to doing this fundraiser every year to connect with my artist friends in that area and to support an Arts Council that has done amazing work in such a small community.

THIS YEAR PAINT THE TOWN IS DIFFERENT! For the 25th anniversary, they have invited 25 artists to produce one modestly sized painting over the two days August 15 and 16th, which will be posted on line at p.m. on the 16th. These 25 works will be auctioned online on the 17th. If the buyer is from out of town, the piece will be mailed via Canada Post.

We also work in our venue of choice instead of Annapolis Royal






9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


Besides the one painting for auction, I will be painting some of my larger works on collaged backgrounds which I will make available for Secord Gallery.

I will also have a selection of approximately 30 works on paper available for sale in the house at reduced prices from their original retail sale. These works may be purchased by cash, cheque or e-transfer. if you are entering the house, physical distancing is required as well as wearing a mask.
