Jay Jensen explains of this lush scene, "I visited the Gettysburg battlefield in April and the timing was perfect. In that part of the country, there are lots of flowering trees, particularly dogwood and a pink flower producing variety called redbud, and they were peaking on Little Round Top that day. Little Round Top was the scene of the most savage carnage during the second day of fighting July 2, 1863."
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.
