This is another addition in a series of paintings featuring this window from an old stone house that used to belong to one of my painting teachers at Gettysburg College. I like the challenge of what is the equivalent of a Photoshop montage of inserting a background and still life within the window. Aside from the difficulty of getting the geometry right, getting the feeling of light is the other big challenge.

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.
