I was attracted by the contrast of this dead pine stump against the rugged coastline of Maine. I wondered if it was killed in a storm. And if yes, how long ago? How long had it been alive? Like us, the tree sprouts, grows and then dies leaving just bleached bones. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jay

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.
