Red Boat




18" x 24" acrylic on canvas

SOLD

Here is a painting that I just finished for the upcoming "Vessels" show at the BMFA Gallery in Collingwood. It is my first time showing in this area since we moved, so I am a little nervous! The show runs the month of March.

On another note, check out Annie Salness' current blog entry on the "creative habit", the comments section lists a number of ways people have developed work habits to foster their creativity (and makes you realize you are not alone in this game!).

I love how you interpret the landscape with colour. Every time I look at one of your paintings, I get a lift. Thanks for the referral about creative habits. I'm headed there next.

Wonderful painting. Every single thing about it is important. I like that. No extraneous anything, just good composition and the surprise of the reds in the boat.

Wish I could see the whole show in person.
Best wishes!!

All your work is really beautiful Jennifer! I love how you let the color of the canvas come through, it reminds me a little of oil pastels.
Good luck with your show!!

Wow, I love how you take subject matter that is attempted by many but you really distinguish yourself with your unique style. I know that's a huge part of what it's all about but you are consistently successful in your paintings.

I found your site via Edward Burton. I love your style, the strong outlines are so refreshing. I used to paint with a similair style and then some teachers pushed me away from it, I'm not sure why I let them, it feels so natural to me. You've inspired me and I'm going to have to let that style sneek back in....
