Collector in Denver!

One of the highlights from the trip was stopping in Denver to see collector, Susan G. It was a thrill to finally meet her in person and to see the spot where she hung the diptych, "Autumn on Bells." Susan had the walls painted a beautiful shade of grey to really make the paintings pop!  A new commission is in the works for the third niche. ❤️ #JensArt

New York, New York

What a whirlwind week! I had a lot of fun hanging out with my favorite artists in the booth for Lawley Art Group! Pete Tillack (on the right) is an Aussie born surfer and artist friend from San Diego and Tanner Lawley is the "bigger than life" Texan and painter of hearts who also shows my work in his Dallas gallery. Thanks Tanner for getting us all together in NYC! 

Painting created at show in NYC finds home!

I didn't plan on painting Live at the show, but after arriving at the venue, I noticed there was an art store right across the street. I knew it would be expensive to buy everything I'd need to create an original painting away from my studio...but how cool if people could watch me actually start and finish one during the show!  Gabby R. came back two days in a row to watch, and when it was finished, she bought it! 💜

Palette Mosaics hit NYC

Another crazy-fun day at the art show! My Palette Mosaics were a hit today. I create those out of the recycled paint scraped off my palette. I'll post a FB Live tomorrow around 9 am PT/12 ET. Now off to ice my feet. No more heels for me!  I'll be sporting converse tomorrow.   #JensArt #ArtHappy #PaletteMosaics

Art for Birthday Surprise!

My good friend just turned 40, so her sister and I wanted to surprise her with a special piece of art to commemorate the big day. The way she describes what happened upon receiving the surprise package is just too priceless not to share. So here's the full story, in her words:

"Ok, first off, when the FedEx man knocked on my door I looked at that huge box labeled with FRAGILE stickers, rolled my eyes and said, "Oh no. What did he buy?" I thought Jeff had bought some bizaare and obnoxious thing while I was gone last week, when I wasn't here to talk him out of it.

Then when I saw the sender label, I started to slowly put the puzzle pieces together. Thank Matt for being such a good packaging man--that sucker was sealed down tight! It took so long to unwrap, which only added to the excitement...

And then...

And then!!!

I was so grateful that Malia thought to run and grab my phone to take a few pictures of the moment.

Oh! My! Gosh!

I had no words. Only tears.

It is so, so special to me. My heart is filled with overflowing love!

It really is just perfect. You have no idea how perfect. I'll prove how perfect it is! I'm sending you a screenshot of my 40 before 40 list!

#5:check. It was one of those magical days up in the aspen forests of Utah last fall.

But #27: well, I figured that I'd just let that one go, sliding it into the maybe before I turn 50 category. After all, the decade of the 40s is all about accepting things as they are, but feeling contented in it being good enough. We have lived long enough to appreciate that when you get most of the things you set out to do done, then that'll do.

And now, because of the most beautiful gift I have ever been given, I can look at that painting and be reminded of sisters I love, friends I love, and feel the hope of dreams and goals ahead. Springs Twilight passes in my life and yet, all the light and love of the four decades that have gotten me to this place will shine on through the next four decades (hopefully!).

I am so grateful and I love you both so much!"
