I developed this studio piece from a plein air painting I created in a beautiful walled garden near the banks of the James River. The rain fell softly off and on during the making of the plein air piece. At several points things got pretty soggy, and I found myself jostling my brushes, paper towels, and my painting umbrella, which I was using as a shelter for myself, my painting, and my palette. I must say it felt like quite a luxury to paint this larger version in the comfort of my own studio!

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer’s early work focused mostly on the human figure, though she eventually gravitated toward landscape painting after studying the Impressionist masters. She enjoys gathering her own reference material in the field, both through plein air painting and sketching as well as taking photographs. “From my field studies, I gain an understanding of the light and a visceral feeling of time and place,” says Jennifer. “All of my paintings are places I have visited myself and explored in depth.” When she’s not painting, Jennifer enjoys gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family.
