Jay Jensen
St-Lambert, Canada

Jay Jensen enjoys capturing the unique magic of a dramatic sky or the late afternoon light. He currently lives in Canada and has been influenced by the work of Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth. Jay considers himself a figurative painter, but particularly loves painting ocean views. He does a lot of glazing which make his works even more luminous in person.

I was in the process of moving and was without any internet when I received your message so I wrote back to your email address. Now that my internet service has been re-established, I'm adding my message to the gallery blog space. Thank you for your message. I'm very thrilled that you are enjoying my painting. It's such an honor that you thought enough about my work to actually purchase a piece. I'll tell you a story about the genesis of the painting. My girlfriend and I went on a camping trip to Ocracoke Island, a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina. We brought our dog Micky along. After being cooped up in the car for a day and a half, she went nuts with joy on the endless beach. That dog taught me a lesson about the importance of living in the moment. That's the beauty of dogs. They don't brood over the past or worry about the future. I try to convince myself to do the same but with limited success. Thanks so much for the support and I hope my painting brings you many years of pleasure.

We love our new painting, Dog Happy. We are big dog lovers, have a big pack of rescued dogs that are part of our family, and this painting will hang proudly in our house at the ocean. Thank you, we love it!
