This study is a work of contrasting cool and warm flesh tones in and out of water. The easy feel calls back relaxing memories of warm summer sun and cool water. 

The painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished blue edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer Hannaford grew up finding calm and freedom in the waters of California. After studying forensic science in college, she created a series of mug shots using her fingerprints; these mug shots are what inspired her to try her hand as an artist (no jail time was served!). Jennifer’s art allows her to explore beautiful moments of the living experience that have been frozen in time on canvas. She balances a scientific approach to the human form with a beautiful sense of mystery and romanticism. Her underwater scenes come across as otherworldly, and her figures seem ethereal and almost mermaid-like.
