I painted this summer piece on location ("en plein air") on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd, Virginia. This was painted during the Floyd Plein Air Event, where numerous painters from around the region were selected to paint the beautiful scenery in the county. I was attracted to this location by the simple little shed with the rusted tin roof, fronted by the most magnificent mountain wildflowers, a-buzz with busy bees.

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer’s early work focused mostly on the human figure, though she eventually gravitated toward landscape painting after studying the Impressionist masters. She enjoys gathering her own reference material in the field, both through plein air painting and sketching as well as taking photographs. “From my field studies, I gain an understanding of the light and a visceral feeling of time and place,” says Jennifer. “All of my paintings are places I have visited myself and explored in depth.” When she’s not painting, Jennifer enjoys gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family.
