Another addition to Jennifer’s Kintsugi Horse series. Inspired by the Japanese spiritual art of repairing broken pottery with gold, she uses eggshells collaged onto the canvas surface. "Kintsugi is a metaphor for embracing our flaws and imperfections," Jennifer explains of the philosophy. "Taking the broken pieces and putting them together is a fascinating process!" In this piece, a gray horse contemplates the horizon of an abstracted landscape.

Jennifer Ross grew up surrounded by the art of her mother and grandfather. Her attempt to follow in their footsteps presented detours, however, and she ended up working in art galleries selling other's work. But her desire to paint continued to grow throughout the years. In 2008, a gift certificate to a local art store turned into an epiphany when she decided to try painting. Jennifer found inspiration in a collection of antique prints of birds' nests and eggs by the English artist, F.O. Morris, and began to create an avian series. These paintings serve as symbolic family portraits of what we all hold dear - our home and loved ones. Today, she is often commissioned to paint various colored eggs representing patrons' family members.
