Lavender Art for Powder Bath

A collector ordered this piece for her powder room. She needed something with purple and mint green and thought my "Summer in Provence" Giclée would be perfect! She sent me her actual valance fabric so that I could custom match the purples and greens when I enhanced the Giclée. Glad she sent me that! I ended up having to warm up the purple by a lot, taking out all the blue shades. This Giclée became more of an original painting when I was finished with it. She loved it! 💜💜💜#JensArtGiclees

Happy Memorial Day!

Diana Wilks is not only one of my beloved art collectors, but she's also a U.S. Army veteran where she served our country for 23 years. In her own words: "I was a Parachute Rigger, which means I jumped out of Airplains, helicopter's, etc. My job was to rig personnel, medical supply, ammunition, any type of vehicles from Hummers to tanks, artillery, pretty much anything, to be dropped from an aircraft while in flight to wherever in the world a unit needed it, on time, on target. A unit's mission depended on me as a rigger to ensure they had all necessary equipment to complete their mission whether training or combat related. A huge responsibility but a good one."
Thank you Diana and millions of other Americans (including my Dad!) who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives to serving our country! Happy Memorial Day 2016! 🇺🇸

Art Night

Fun painting with these 16 and 17 year old girls in my art studio. They did amazingly well, knocking out a 6"x6" painting in under 2 hours. 🎨 #JensArt #AspenArt
