New Spring Painting in Progress



Just getting started on this one, inspired by the coming of Spring! I've just laid down some color but have a long way to go yet. It's actually already changed I just haven't loaded the pic yet! It's a 16x16 inch canvas and I'm using both a palette knife and brush with lots of juicy paint! 

I took a very quick last minute trip to the South Bay, with my daughter, last week. She was on her Spring Break and I thought it would be nice to go down and visit family while getting some business done. We had a great time seeing everyone and managed to take over 300 photos! Lots of inspiration! I needed to get some new reference photos of the area and stopped by a restaurant that I'm hoping to have my work in. They contacted me about 3 months ago, and I've been working with them, planning what paintings they are interested in, the sizes, doing tests on the canvases for durability, etc.. Now I'm just waiting for the final word from the corporate office (send me some good vibes!). It would be a really big deal for me!

Something for Spring!


Sold


I just finished this small springy piece and found out it sold this morning! I really enjoyed painting this one, trying to keep things lose but deliberate. I noticed it's very similar to a few of my earlier pieces.

Sunflowers Peonies and more!

ready to hang

These are some belated birthday flowers. They've lasted a while but it's time to get
some new ones now. I love using lemons in my paintings. They add such a fresh feel. The paint is juicy although you can't see in the photo. This is my first painting that I've singed as Jen Beaudet. I may start signing my full name but haven't decided yet. Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to hearing your comments and feedback.
