A red-tailed hawk stands with wings open, poised for flight. The rich brown, purple and red-hued feathers stimulate the scene. Gold leaf swirls up into the sky, drawing the eye up and away. The bird looks back at the viewer with an expression of strength and freedom.
Jan’s lifelong passion for animals and art have collided in the images she paints. Her Western subject matter is executed with an impressionistic realism, generally using a limited color palette. Jan captures the essence of her subjects in the details, whether it be the playful visage of a cow or the delicate feathers of a colorful bird. Her paintings embody a genuinely jovial exuberance. Often working on two pieces simultaneously, Jan paints from a small studio in her home in Idaho, where she also enjoys spending time with her teenage children.
