Long before Photoshop, artists would often stitch a composition from different sources. This work is a case in point: the cloud formation came from the vantage point of my apartment balcony in St-Lambert, QC; the trees and water from Maine. Instead of an actual observed time and place, I wanted this painting to convey more of a feeling. The dying rays of the sun conjure all sorts of feelings. I have mine. I'll let feel yours. 

This painting is on a cradled wood panel 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.
