Aspen/ Birch Painting headed to Chicago!

George and his daughter Elena stopped in for their annual visit to the art show. George has built up quite a collection of my paintings over the years and usually finds a piece either for himself and wife Carol or for his daughters! Today, he chose "A Summer's End" for his home in Chicago and Elena picked out a post-palette heart for her daughter's bedroom. Loved seeing these two again! Always fun reconnecting with my favorites. ❤️ #JensArt 



Aspen Paintings!

Just shipped out these two paintings today to my Gallery in Aspen. They're both so different! Which one is more to your taste? A lush, spring landscape like "Purple Meadow," or a more contemporary monochromatic like "Golden Steel?"

Desert Beauty encapsulated!

Feeling the desert beauty today! Just finished up this new Post-Palette creation, 48x24 "Desert Glory." I used little bits of palette remnants to build up the many layers of a saguaro cactus. It's like putting a puzzle together! I have to hunt for the right pieces. But the end result is so colorful and unique! 🌵🌵🌵

“Upwards” Aspen Commission!

Jack, from Raleigh North Carolina, found me a couple of years ago here at the art show and ordered one of my vertical Maroon Bells pieces for his stairs. Today, he added to his collection with a 60x48 commission! I'm going to paint him one of my popular "upwards" aspen piece. He's going to hang it high on a wall, so this vantage point will be super cool—as if you're really looking upwards through the trees. 🍂 #JensArt #CelebrationsOfFineArt

Painting Large Commission at the Show!

It's time to tackle this 8' tall by 7' wide commission! I'm going to need a ladder! Lol. I'll be painting it live here at Celebration of Fine Art! 👀🎨🎨🎨 #JensArt #CelebrationOfFineArt

Aspen/Birch Painting headed to Chicago!

The best thing about this show is that I get to meet and connect with my collectors in person! 🧡 Jeff and Brenda were looking for a special painting for their home in Chicago. Brenda wanted something colorful with vibrant blue mountains in the background. Jeff wanted large aspen/birch in the foreground as a focal point. When they saw my "Confetti Surprise" it was a match made in heaven! 😇 #JensArt #CFA #CelebrationOfFineArt

Summer Print in 4 Season’s Series!

Here's what a happy collector said about her new "Summer" piece from my 4 Seasons Series! 💜


"I have hung this beautiful piece in my kitchen.  Actually more in the dining area where I can enjoy looking at it with every meal. I live in a birch/aspen forest. This piece is perfect.  During the white, winter months it offers just the pop of color I need."

PT Barnum: The Greatest Showman

Who's seen the new movie, "The Greatest Showman?" I just saw it and absolutely loved it! It ended with this quote by PT Barnum: "The noblest Art is that of making others happy." 😃 I quite agree! 🎨 #JensArt #TheGreatestShowman

Feeling the Love in Boston!

Funny story...I was working on this painting when a couple walked up. After watching me for a few minutes, Evantha introduced herself and told me she loved the painting just as it was, and didn't want me to work on it any further. This was a first! I explained that I still planned on adding a meadow of purple daisies, and maybe some wild flowers — but she stopped me right there. "Nope! I want to buy it just like it is!" This painting represented "Love" to her, so we titled it "Lover's Lane," and I added their initials to a heart in the tree. What a fun experience. Loved meeting them! 💜

Tuscan Poppy Painting for Fundraiser!

Donated 48x48 Tuscan Sunrise to my High School alma mater to help raise money for college scholarships! $89,000 was raised that night, breaking all records! Every single senior who applies receives a scholarship. My neighbor had the winning bid for Tuscan Sunrise so I got to see it hanging up. ❤️ #craterfoundation  #JensArt

Aspen Art in Montana Home!

I met Dale and Bonnie at the collector dinner and afterwards they invited me and the Gallery owners to come visit their home. Their view is really spectacular! This is how I picture Montana. Big open expanses of land teaming with wildlife. Dale loves to sit on his back deck and watch the roaming geese make their way up to the house or the bald eagles nesting in the trees by the river. It really is so peaceful! I loved it. Bonnie wanted to "brighten up" the home so by the time we left, the house had been completely redecorated! 😍

Dinner with Collectors

The Collector's Dinner was a lot of fun. It started at 4 pm with wine and hors d'oeuvres with everyone mingling and walking around the gallery. At 7 pm we were seated at a long table and after some words from the Gallery owner, Robin Galloway, the chef began serving the first course. Each woman was given a present that they unwrapped to find one of my Art Totes.They were so surprised! It was such a wonderful evening mingling with my lovely art collectors. Thank you Beartooth Gallery for putting on such a special event! ❤️ #BeartoothGallery #JensArt
