Artwork

Two happy dogs chase after a tennis ball along the beach, with ocean spray accentuating the action. Artist Jeff Fleming rendered the scene in his signature kinetic impressionist style. He started the piece with a pencil sketch on the canvas, then with gloved hands, he applied oil paint using his fingers. Once the overall image was completed, he added small paint droplets using the pointed end of a bamboo shish kebab stick, and lastly, he dipped a kite string in paint and pressed and released it randomly to replicate splashing water.

Artist Jeff Fleming uses fingerpainting to create exuberant portraits of dogs. Growing up in Southern California, Jeff was first introduced to fingerpainting in kindergarten. He painted through high school and college and won several art awards, including Best of Show in a city wide student competition. After graduating with a degree in journalism and advertising, he went to work as an art director. For the next 40 years, he created print, radio and television ads for a number of top agencies. "After retiring in 2019, the clouds of stress and pressure cleared and allowed me to set my creative energy free," says Jeff. He began developing new techniques focused on the excitement and energy of painting. Today, he uses a variety of methods and tools, including fingerpainting wearing nitrile gloves, traditional paint brushes, bamboo shish kebab sticks, kite string, spraypaint and splattering. While working, Jeff always listens to music, including Broadway musicals, dance music and rhythmic Hawaiian tunes.
