Solo Plein Air Exhibit at Anthonys

November 27th, 2018

Solo Plein Air Exhibit at Anthonys

From April through October 2018, the Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond went to many parks throughout Everett, Washington (and a bit beyond). These are my pieces, 11 in total, plus a few extras, that will be shown at Anthony's Woodfire Grill at the Everett Marina during December 2018 through February 2019.

It has been the most wonderful adventure to paint en plein air with friends surrounded by magnificent scenery right here in our proverbial backyard. We painted through the fog and drizzle of April; the sunbreaks of May; the gorgeousness of June; the heat of July; the wildfire, smoke-filled skies of August; the wind of September; and the rain and chill of October.

The Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond will begin again next Spring and will capture even more sites in and around the Puget Sound.

Until then, please enjoy these plein air works from 2018. They are framed and available for sale at Anthony's Woodfire Grill, Everett Marina, Washington or to inquire, please click on the Contact button above.

Best,

Jeannie

Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond

Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond

I created the plein air group, Plein Air Painters of Everett and Beyond, for our local artists who, like me, may feel a bit intimidated about going off and painting on your own or having to deal with the public's eyes while in process. Most of us are comfortable in the seclusion of our studios. We need to get out there in within a group of artists at least to start, a place that is open yet off the beaten path to begin this journey. I posted about it on Meetup and met with resounding affirmation that this was indeed a much needed event, one that was free and held for the love of art and nature.

Our first Meetup will be in early spring and hopefully continue until fall. It could happen year-round for those that don't mind bundling up against the elements. We encourage those who want to paint elsewhere to break off into smaller groups to do their thing. It will be fantastic and this is only just the beginning. Just arrive with all of your kit and supplies and find a spot comfortable for you. Our goal is to get us out there to paint in comfort, whenever, wherever that may be.

Best,

Jeannie

On the Easel

My current work in process is near and dear to my heart. A photo taken by a cousin of her brother, a devout and faithful man, as he lay in bed at the end of his life. It is an iconic photo that had to be painted. I hope to complete the painting in a couple of weeks.

Best,

New paintings are up at the Robert Drewel Bldg., 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett, WA for the months of July and August 2016!

I've worked nights and weekends around my full-time job to get some new work ready. Other paintings shown on my website have already gone to their rightful owners, but prints are available.

One of my favorite pieces is the Mastercopy of Jacob Collins' Vincent, and that is on display only at the exhibit to show a particular style.

Painting Beach Rocks

April 27th, 2015

Painting Beach Rocks

Currently on the easel is a rock study that is nearing completion. I've never painted a scene solely made of rocks, but in this case it contains so many interesting dimensions that it continues to lure me in.

The rocks are sitting in wet sand, having been bandied about by the waves. When the water recedes, little sand trails are formed, which brings movement and contrast. The rocks have amazing yet subtle color. The sand was not just gray. In different areas, you could see either browns in the form of raw ochre or burnt umber mixed with the gray or blues. The moss on the stones was cool viridian and warm earth green, muted and pure in specs.

This painting captures a moment in time as with every wave, the sand trails change and the pebbles are again juxtaposed.

I'll post this in the gallery when completed at which time it will be available for sale.

Small works

Small works

The ARTSpot Edmonds is hosting a 25X25 Creativity Challenge whereby local artists create 25 small works of 5"x5" within 25 days. The exhibit will run from April 16 through May 20, 2015 with over 600 works on display.

I've always wanted to create a collection of small works, and this has been a great catalyst for new ideas and venues. After the paintings are finished for the show, I will continue to create small works of sites from around the beautiful Puget Sound. This is a doable way for me to complete paintings in the evenings and weekends and to build inventory for my Etsy Shop and for art shows in the future.

Thanks ARTSpot!

Alla Prima portraits

Finding new and inspirational subjects is easy when you're painting portraits. There is nothing more satisfying than capturing the essence and look of a human being. To capture an emotion that exudes from the eyes, to me, is the pinnacle of artistic brilliance. I admire this in others and can only strive to achieve it.
