Reno Tahoe Tonight Magazine Interview


RenomagI was recently interviewed for Reno Tahoe Tonight magazine and I'm so honored to be the cover story for the March issue. I'm so very happy with how it turned out. Among other things, we discuss art, music, my exhibitionist tendencies, discipline, freedom, and why in many ways, painting helps me live another day. Here's the link. Starts on page 16. Thanks for reading it.

Fangs & Flaws, A Conversation With:


RedlineDear friends:
I am honored and privileged and extremely thrilled to be leading a discussion with Redline Design on March 16, 2017, in Reno, Nevada. It'll be an intimate setting where we talk about the creative process, and the journey that I've been on, to pursue art with complete freedom, deep meaning, and uncensored expression. It's a never-ending journey, really.

If you are able, I hope you'll join me for this special experience where we will dive deep, raise a glass, nibble on treats, listen to each other, and leave with greater resolve to pursue lives where we the quality of light we shine onto our efforts is so lucid and bright that we can't help but find and express the truth of who we are.

Here is the link to enroll for this event. On the following days, I will be teaching a couple of painting classes for those who are able to extend their stay in Reno to paint with me as follows:

Looking forward to seeing you in Reno!

Love,
Jenny

Paint with Me in Washington!


Jenny

I'm really excited to be teaching oil painting fundamentals this coming July 13-16, 2017 in a small farm community called Enumclaw, located outside of Seattle, Washington. It is part of the NW Country Art Retreats program run by Lisa Kumcur. It will be a retreat experience that includes ground transportation, lodging, reception, and just a whole lot of painting goodness. A perfect getaway for you to attend by yourself or with a friend in order to dig deep and unleash the wonders of oil painting in a safe, fun, beautiful environment.

Here's the enrollment link that describes the weekend experience. If you'd like to connect with hostess Lisa to have any questions answered, her email is lisakumcur@yahoo.com.

Let's paint!

The Getty Interview


GettyIrisInterview

Many thanks to The Getty for publishing the interview that their writer (Allison Ramirez) conducted of me on their online magazine: The Getty Iris. You can read the entire interview here if you want to. I'm really happy with it ... especially with the fact that the interview brought out my views about my exhibitionist tendencies, along with my frequent desire to hide, which is opposite of exhibitionism. :-)

Thank you also to The Getty for featuring my painting on their Instagram! What a thrill. Have you been to The Getty? It's quite magnificent ... not only the art within but the art that is the actual buildings that make up The Getty ... buildings that were designed to celebrate the beauty of Los Angeles. I plan to go again in 2016.

As a fine artist, how do you feel about sharing your work on social media?

Sharing my work on social media is a great release for me. I feel there is a part of me that I describe as “exhibitionist.” I mean, I really love expressing and sharing and showing snippets of my work and my life, and engaging with the world that way.

Ironically, I go through moments when I want to shut it all down and crawl under the sheets and hide from everyone and everything. Same thing with the studio. As much as I enjoy interacting with actual humans who come through the studio either for a workshop, private lesson, or monthly art walks, there are times I want to say “everybody get out,” and shut the doors and leave. But I don’t do that of course. Or at least I haven’t yet.

I have a feeling I’m not alone in these types of feelings. It’s just much too much at times, you know? And sometimes it feels so phony, and I wonder to myself, am I phony? I don’t want to be. I want to be creating from a sincere place. So then the day goes by, I connect with my family at the dinner table, read some, think some, and the sun rises again, and it feels right again to create and share with sincerity as much as possible.

The Getty


GettyInspiredIt has been such an honor to be featured on The Getty museum's site that shine's light on people's thoughts about inspiration.

From that feature, a new project has developed where They Getty will be using my art and words about inspiration for a campaign that will be placed on a metro bus in the Los Angeles area. This photo (above) is what it will look like.

I am so honored and excited. Inspiration IS all around me and I am so grateful that I get to use my time and energy to focus on making art every single day.

NEW Workshop! :: Oil Painting by Heart :: Magical Portraits


IMG_3380

A couple important things I've learned about oil painting portraits:

  • I am not a camera. I am an artist. Which is why when I paint a portrait, it's the emotional ESSENCE that I capture, not the mechanically EXACT likeness.
  • Starting a portrait is half the battle of finishing a portrait. Which is why I spend lots of time prepping and planning the overall approach to create a framework that can be finished.

I am excited to be teaching my new workshop: Oil Painting by Heart :: Magical Portraits in Studio Crescendoh this November 28th and30th. The details and link to enroll can be found here.
