Did you receive your Collector Newsletter last night?


If you have ever purchased my art in any form, ever, and did not receive your extra special thank you email last night, please email me and let me know! I was terrible at keeping track of collectors for the first several years of selling art. It’s a cardinal sin, I know!

Here are all of the January Painting Marathon paintings shown together: http://jessiesfineart.com/specials.html.  Today is the last day to purchase January paintings at the special price.

Thank you to a wonderful repeat collector in Spokane, WA for purchasing “Clippings” and a new artist & collector in Ireland (!!!) for purchasing “Happy Smells!”

Yesterday I painted and painted and then wiped… Oh boy. I probably won’t get a chance to post a painting today – School was canceled because it’s cold. Freeze your buns off cold. MINUS 40 degree with windchill. So I’ll be busy playing legos! 🙂   (apparently no amount of cold is too cold for hockey practice tonight though!)

So here is a non-marathon painting of a Warm sunny day in Seattle, WA! framed-kite2

Kite 2 / 6×6″ / oil on linen / 275 framed

To purchase, email me with the name of the painting you want, and payment preference (secure PayPal invoice, check or payment plan). I will get back to you right away. Thank you for viewing my Art. If you enjoy these paintings, and haven’t already, please consider signing up for Jessie’s e-newsletter.

Last Dance – oil painting of irises, and a warm green

I listened to an interview with Quang Ho while I was painting these wilting irises. And that inspired me to think about why exactly I paint. Maybe it’s the kind of question where the question itself is more important than the answer?

Anyways, this painting started yesterday as a depiction of one of my favorite things – flowers that have ‘lost their bloom.’ And an exploration of a fun composition. But today it turned into a challenge to see how warm I could make that green, and how cool…  And I did really find some interesting (to me) things – with soft edges and hard edges. I’m not sure if it’s done.

As always, I very much appreciate your comments, and when you take the time to share my work with your friends.

Portrait artist paints cat Watching the Red Green Show

Can you see my studio companion in this painting?

We love the Red Green Show on PBS, and when I saw the two apples together I thought it would be fun to make them a silly homage. 🙂

This one was a real challenge for me. Reflective metal can really kick my booty – so of course I’ll be painting more of it soon.
