I Am A Child of God

Posted on November 2nd, 2015 by Jean | Comments: Comments Off on I Am A Child of God

A soft impressionistic painting, ‘I Am A Child of God’, has very little detail. It’s more a feeling. Just being. I’ve had this photo in my box for quite a while waiting to be painted. It’s part of my Jesus Movement collection. I really liked it but it was out of focus and I really […]


Movement into Painting

Posted on July 9th, 2015 by Jean | Comments: 3 comments

I started this painting in a different way – with movement. Music is going, big canvas, lots of room to move… With pencil in hand the marks were grand swirling gestures. Then I saw the faces. Abstract faces. I sketched them in and kept looking to see what would appear. I began painting the figure […]


Make Me a Prophetic Painting

Posted on March 10th, 2015 by Jean | Comments: 1 comment

So how does that happen? A commissioned prophetic painting? Here’s what I got from the client: babies, anchors and the color navy. I told this to an artist friend and she just blurted out a big laugh. HaHa! It’s all in the process of problem solving and fluid artful living. I actually find this part […]


FB Profiles Around the World

Posted on October 2nd, 2014 by Jean | Comments: Comments Off on FB Profiles Around the World

I find it fascinating to see the images that people choose to represent themselves. Facebook opens up the world in ways we cannot imagine. A glimpse into the lives we had no idea that even ever existed. As an artist interested in painting the human face and figure facebook is a gold mine. Sometimes I […]

I was honored to participate in the Freedom 58 Project by painting this portrait of Avarielle who was a victim of the sex trade. Info from Freedom 58 Project Mission: Using art to give dignity to former slaves and victims of violent oppression and build awareness of the massive problems of human trafficking. A Call […]

http://youtu.be/4ThWriwOrR0 Here’s a YouTube link to a video of all 100 Laughter Project paintings. Yay! The Laughter Project is completed. I posted #100 on June 29th. Since then I put them altogether in a video with some fun music. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. I had hoped this project would […]

Hi there! I am adding several new abstracts to my portfolio. Check out the Abstract & Prophetic portfolio. The new ones are at the top. Here is one of the latest ones I painted during a worship time at my church. I named it “Involved in God’s Glory”. It reminds me that everywhere we turn […]


Laughter #91

Posted on April 27th, 2014 by Jean | Comments: Comments Off on Laughter #91

Hello again! This is Laughter #91. I have only 9 more! Willie and Petey are hanging out by the pool. I painted Petey before way back in Laughter #34.     This dog likes to lick! Either that or his owner is really good at capturing a licking moment. I enjoy these candid natural poses. […]


Merry Christmas

Posted on December 25th, 2013 by Jean | Comments: Comments Off on Merry Christmas

Christmas Morning 2013 I slept in. After getting up EXTRA early to deliver packages before carrying a whole route this week; this was so nice! So I had a dream: I was with a gathering of church people at a new get-away cabin that belonged to my pastor and his family. It was so nice […]


More Catching Up

Posted on November 5th, 2013 by Jean | Comments: Comments Off on More Catching Up

OK, now I know I have a problem with procrastination. But this is pathetic! So here are the next 7. I’ve also been busy preparing for a show and have to have it ready to hang in about a week. I’m loving every bit of this project and won’t know what to do with myself […]
