You supply the photo and I'll come up with an adorable painting of your house, vacation, wedding, or any of your photo ideas. I add flowers and take out distracting items. We'll work together to create a beautiful keepsake to adorn your home.
This is a perfect gift for new home owners!
please contact me here and we can get started on yours! Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. I will provide photos of your painting when I'm done for your approval and will work with you until you are
 completely happy with it.

Just send me your photo of your honeymoon spot, favorite getaway, your house, your family, whatever it may be and I will create a beautiful custom painting that will be cherished and passed down generation after generation. Makes a perfect wedding present too! Maybe the honeymoon spot?

My art is colorful with a modern impressionist, contemporary style.  I like to use rich oil paints with both brushes and a palette knife to achieve lots of texture. I enjoy painting travel scenes like Italy, California and Hawaii, fields of flowers, as well as tropical landscapes and Country French and coastal decor.
Giclee prints, which offer fine quality archival inks and substantial rag paper are also available on here. 

I have been painting commissioned paintings for my collectors since 2009. Over those years I have done roughly 100 custom paintings and have received rave reviews! 
Here's a few of my 5 STAR Reviews-

Love my new oil painting. Jennifer painted this for me using a picture I took in Venice and it looks even better then I expected. This is the third oil painting I’ve ordered from Jennifer and probably won’t be the last.

In My Studio Today...

red poppies painting by Jen Beaudet Z of California

I am having such a great time painting again! I am using this time to remind myself of how great it is to be a full time artist. I know I will get back to that point again someday soon! Just have to keep a balance. I'm still not back to the flow I had before with my postings...the photo I took is a little blurry so I'll need to get my good camera out.

So this is a burst of spring poppies! I hope it brings joy to someone's home. I'm watching YouTube videos from inspiring artists, learning new tips all the time! Thank you for posting them for free!

What are you doing with all your extra time?

Revised- this is the new one!

How Will Covid-19 Influence Our Creativity?

Floral Abstract "Hope Through The Mist" by J. Beaudet

Artists over the years have been inspired by turmoil. Uncertain times can bring out the most emotional works of art, and tells a story of the history of that time. Art movements are a reflection of the time. I wonder what this movement will be. Simple times, getting back to basics? An appreciation of nature?

I know, as an artist, I've always been inspired when emotions are high. Sometimes it's been from grief or despair, but also love and the emotions that come from exploring new places. What's happening in our world today, is different. It's brought feelings I've never had to deal with in my lifetime, and I'm sure you're with me when I say I can't wait for it to be over. I'm not sure how life will have changed or how I will have changed, but I do know that my art will change. It's already changing.

I think art in general will change. I don't know what that change will be but that's my opinion. It will be interesting to look back and see what creatives bring to it! And this won't just be visual art, but music and film, theater and of course technology. I have to include that because there are some seriously creative people in the tech world. It's going to be so interesting to see this movement manifest.

This new creation of mine is a new beginning...


5 Reasons To Buy Art Direct From The Artist During A Crisis or Anytime

  1. You're stuck at home and discover a lot of blank walls or even worse, walls filled with nothing special.  
  2. Uplift the spirits of someone dear to you. This is a stressful time for all of us. How wonderful would it be to receive a personal gift like art? Giving art as a gift is special. It's much more personal gift card, and last a lot longer than a bouquet of roses! Your gift to your love one will be displayed and appreciated daily. Not tucked away in a drawer or even worse, re-gifted! 
  3. Buying art directly from the artist has a powerful meaning. You're not only supporting them so they can create more but you're bringing someone's creativity to your home. It's original, fresh, and alive!
  4. You're helping the economy.  Many artists support themselves or at least supplement their incomes through their art. 
  5. You're supporting the arts! Art is an important part of our society and our world. It enriches lives with beauty, intrigue, mystery, fantasy, and more. Art is seen throughout our history, from the time of cavemen. We can't stop making it. It's not the times of the Medici, when patrons supported their artists...or is it? You are our patrons. You are our Medici family. 

         Can you think of other reasons to buy art directly from the artist?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means so much! With your support, I am able to buy more supplies, pay bills, continue my therapy, and share my passion for our beautiful world! We need beauty in our lives...especially in times of crisis.


New Pink Peonies by Artist Jen Beaudet

New Pink Peonies by Artist Jen Beaudet...art therapy and social distancing

Available soon
Here's a new piece in my studio! Times are a little strange at the moment, so I'm taking this emotion and putting it into painting. It's such great therapy. You should try it! I feel like more art is going to be created in the following months than ever before! I hope I can add some beauty and peace to our lives...we all need some distraction and what's better than beautiful flowers? 

My daughter helped me with the color on the table. I originally had it a yellowish color but we decided the dark gray was less distracting. I kind of like the glass as is. What do you think? Add some more detail or keep it simple? I'm going to fix the left side of the table top so that it's not smudged. I put this color down right before I had to run off to work!

 I'm learning a new workflow and trying to be flexible! I used to have a schedule for my art (when that was all I was doing). Wake up, social media, learn new strategies...while drinking my coffee. Get ready and get in the studio and paint! Post my new one...repeat. 

Now, I'm back in the workforce, for now...so I need to use my time wisely, painting in sprints not marathons. I'm a quick painter so this works for me! It's just a matter of getting in the studio and getting in the paint! I work at supercuts and we're definitely slow right now. I'm going to use this time to create instead of worrying too much. I wish you all good health and hope to bring you a little break from this unprecedented time. 

Thanks for your visit. Talk to you soon! 


Art for a Cause

Twitter Art Exhibit 2020

I'm so happy I finished this in time for the 2020 TwitterArtExhibit! This year's charity is for Horry County Disabilities & Special Needs. Such a great cause to donate to! I loved painting this little piece and love the cause it's going towards. I hope someone falls in love with it at the show.

I found some other entries from the past, and feel like this one is maybe a little more primitive, even though I've been painting longer. It could be the brush size I used and it's also acrylic instead of oil paints. They all have an impressionist feel but the colors are a little more complex than the new one. I go back and forth and I know that's not what an artist should do. It's like I have a split personality! I wonder if it's determined by my mood.

I revisited some paintings from years ago to get inspired. I need to get back to painting just because I love it so much. No pressure to make my next masterpiece or sell it. Just for the love because it's my passion. I feel like I got lost somewhere. These paintings below are also larger than the new one which changes the amount of detail when using a larger brush.

available as a print

Sometimes simple is better. What do you think? I like the new one but I'm going to try it in oils to see if that's the difference.


Can an Artist Change Their Name...successfully? By Jennifer Beaudet Zondervan...

If you have been following me you may already know the situation I encountered of another artist having my same exact name...even the same middle name! She also paints oils of similar subjects. The style is not quite that same but I'm afraid it could get confusing for my collectors. I've since spoken with her and found out that she's very cool and is also a great artist. It's a strange feeling and until it happens to you it's hard to understand how it feels. I had been working hard to brand my name and have managed to show up in a lot of places online. However, I took a little break and feel like I haven't fully come back from it. A divorce, being abruptly ripped from all of my possessions, having to start my life over from scratch...it's been a journey. Things are great now! I started working as hairstylist and happened to meet someone very special. We moved to San Clemente, California together in May and will be married soon!

Field of Flowers by Jen Beaudet Zondervan Original Sold

I know I've been focused on getting my life back and my art has suffered from that. But I still had my name, at least I thought I did. There is another Jennifer Beaudet whose website has much more power  than mine, so it comes up first. I just don't have the money to put towards that and have been doing it all on my own so far. My images show up first because there are so many, but her website shows up. I don't want to compete for my name. Art is a hard business and is very competitive. I liked my name J. Beaudet but now I feel like it's lost something. It's not me. I'm going to be married soon and will change my name to Zondervan. What if I started signing my paintings, Zondervan? How would that work in the art world? I've sold hundreds of paintings as J. Beaudet. My signature is recognizable. Would I be essentially starting over if I started painting under a new name?

It's frustrating and I feel a little loss of identity. But really, what's in a name? My name was Rutkoskie before I was married at 22, I could sign my paintings Rutkoskie. I'm conflicted and could use some advice. My heart says just keep painting (or I should say...start painting again like I used to) and keep signing my name J. Beaudet and it will all work out, but my mind says different. What would you do?

Palette Kinfe Painting of a Women in Red Dress

sold but available as a print on my Etsy
Jennifer Beaudet Zondervan ©

This oil painting was created using only a palette knife and oil paint. I tried to keep to a limited palette of complimentary colors for a dramatic impact. For her dress, I used alizarin crimson with some green for the darks and cadmium red for most other light areas. I painted this one in 2016...I don't remember exactly. I loved painting her red dress. This one just flowed so effortlessly. They don't always happen like that, so when it does I remember it, for sure! I've done several paintings of women in red and I'm sure I will do more someday. I'm inspired by beautiful fabrics and bridal gowns and since I've been wedding dress shipping recently, I have lots of paintings in mind. This oil painting is only an 8x10 and I'm trying to paint on a larger scale lately, so I may do something similar but larger.


Finding My Place by Artist Jennifer Beaudet

12x12 inch oil available

Moving to a new place is exciting but can also be an adjustment. New surroundings, new job, new life. Best thing is, I'm inspired to paint again and love my new studio! I guess it's a natural occurrence because of so many changes...I feel a transformation in my art happening. Am I struggling to find my voice as an artist? Or am I just adjusting to my new life?

18x24 inch original oil available 

I wrote this before I created my newest abstract. I am going to explore this direction and see where it takes me. It actually started because we want a large abstract for our new home. I have been wanting to try something like that and this is the perfect opportunity. The one posted here is a test and I love it! It's not large enough for my space, but I think the colors are going to work.  I already have a new commission for another one...just happens to be for my mom. I know when she loves something I've done that I'm onto something good. I mean, of course she likes most everything I do, but when she loves it it's obvious. My mom is an amazing interior designer who just never worked as one. Her life took her in a different direction, raising 3 kids, playing tennis, shopping...but if she had to make a living she would have been a top designer, really! So...when she loves something I've done, I listen.

I feel like abstract art comes from such a personal place it's not always easy to share it. I feel vulnerable, like I'm putting it all out there...naked. This is the direction I need to go not just for my art but for myself.


Sometimes it's better to leave things alone...
