Hi, I'm artist Jennifer Beaudet Zondervan, from Southern California, USA. I started this blog in 2009 as a way to share my art journey and meet other creative souls. It became my therapy. I use oil paints with a palette knife and bold brush marks. My work is both, passionate and sensitive; inspired by nature's beauty. My blog is BeaudetArt and I first called it My Life As a Starving Artist. I have another website JBeaudetStudios.com
Here's my sketch for the week. I think next week I'll be working on some nudes to liven things up for the party! haha Maybe I'll get some people to join me. If you'd like to join me I'm inviting you to post your sketches on my Facebook page.
I had a busy week of painting too!
I think Spring has cured my artist's block. I felt a little lost for a few months, but I'm back on track now and the creativity is flowing again! It must be winter…it happens almost every year. Oh how I wish I could live back in Southern California. It's hard when you're born and raised in the best weather possible and then have to move away. I still haven't given up on my dream of moving to Hawaii either, even though my husband doesn't want to anymore. Maybe he never did. Anyway, we will be moving sometime in the future because neither of us want to live here anymore, but for different reasons. I feel too isolated and he wants out of California. We're in a total disagreement of where to go. I want warm sunshine and a beach, he wants freedom and land. To be continued…
Meantime, I'll be painting away! I'm not sure about my new blog. I really like how it functions and the way it looks, but I can't seem to get you all over there. I understand, I don't like change either, or when things don't work. Hopefully it'll get going.
Two new ones. The color is not quite as bright as on here. Blogger automatically saturates the photos. I was actually going for a way more subtle warm feel on the first one. So if you want you can see a better photo along with some close ups by clicking the links.
