Aspen/Birch Art with Love!

I painted this 48x60 piece (part of my "monochromatic" series) with a pewter background and chunky, white and black aspen/birch trees and decided it needed a couple of red birds singing from the branches. Titled it, "Love Birds." Happy Valentine's Day! ❀️❀️❀️

Color Perfection!

I didn't know it when I painted it...but "Desert Rising" was always meant for this room!

Poppy Art!

Just finished this new poppy painting and it found a new home within minutes! ❀ I created this piece using my palette knife technique in combination with my "recycled acrylics" to make the poppies literally "pop" right off the canvas!

Cactus Painting Finds Home in Scottsdale!

This new collector's favorite color is orange!  She just loves bold, bright color. My painting, "Desert Rising" was a match made in heaven and  the moment she saw it knew that it would be perfect for her dining room!

Mountain Goat Commission!

Remember the female mountain goat commission I was working on New Year's Eve? Here she is hanging up in my collector's gorgeous new home! My collector is a Capricorn so the mountain goat has special significance for her. I painted the goat to go with her existing JensArt collection. So fun! Definitely a first for me! πŸ˜‰

New Lavender Field Provence Painting!

Aaah!  Breathe in the sweet scent of lavender!  I just finished up this piece tonight. You can't tell from the photo, but the rows of lavender literally jut out of the canvas, they're painted so thickly!  All palette knife of course! πŸ’œ #JensArt

Colorful Art Commissions!

This couple bought a desert painting from me last year and commissioned 2 more today! Their home is beautiful with soft grays and lovely neutrals--just needed a pop of color! My specialty! The photos on the right are of two paintings I superimposed on their walls so they could see what it would look like. I gave them several options, and these are the two they picked. Can't wait to get started on them! ❀ #JensArt #JensArtCommissions

Palette Abstract Art!

Always fun seeing Harlan and Olivia at the art show every year. They are the collectors who bought my first "Palette Abstract" paintings back when I used canvases as my palettes and underpainting for the next pieces. #JensArt

Perfect Art Gifts!

Loraine Simons, the most vibrant 85 year old you'll ever meet, was waiting for me at the show this morning and loaded up with 3 Art Totes and a cutting board. Perfect gifts she plans on giving to her family members!  #JensArt #JensArtTotes #JensArtCuttingBoards #CelebrateArt

Tonight was the art show's VIP party! Always fun seeing many of my favorite art collectors. Nancy and Jeff Harwiss decided they needed my new palette mosaic heart to add to their collection! ❀Show opens tomorrow to the public. 10-6 pm. 

Loved hanging out with these babes tonight!  Two are my sisters. Can you guess which one is not related? :)
