Intensely in the Moment
And, of course, it was week two of the Expressive Portraits course with Pauline Agnew, so feelings and paint became fodder for faces. In this particular piece, don't adjust your glasses or your computer settings - it is intentionally blurred. The requisite 80 million layers of paint, with several of the wet layers pulled left to right, up and down with a squeegee and a rubber wedge to draaaaaaaaaag the image into a slightly blurred perspective. Which has kind of been my perspective all week! So life imitating art imitating life. Whoa!
Another exciting auction weekend coming up with Artistic Souls Gallery! October 4-5. Here's a sneak peek at some of my offerings.

Oh Jen, what a beautiful, moving, intense painting. "Like all the things outside are felt deeply on the inside." One of your many gifts is your skill at capturing and expressing these things that are felt so deeply on the inside. What a beautiful gift. Thank you. 🙏💕

David!!! Thank you, sweet human. Coming from a writer such as yourself, I am quite overwhelmed with gratitude! Thank you for inspiring this painting and so many new trains of thought with your book. I feel a kindredness to your words and cannot help but be influenced by them. xo
