"Painting Jane"

Jane Nelson Portland Oregon Artist and Art Professor tries to navigate living across the country from her parents going through the major health problems and major past family issues. Jane loses her parents to dementia and finds herself along the way.

Our first review of our upcoming feature Film.

Katie's film is nothing short of a treasure, highlighting the inevitable realities of aging parents. Centering around family-oriented themes like a daughter’s yearning for her mother’s acceptance and a parent’s desperate desire for things to remain the same despite declining health, these are just some of the dilemmas the prized characters of this film grapple with. The music written and sung by the director and screenwriter herself, Katie O’Regan, bolsters the tender ambiance of the film and enhances the excitement of the creative work.
