Jennifer Lee Fine Art is located in a charming house, which is a new space for Jennifer. It's well lit and the space is full of charming details. I've know Jennifer for about two year. Originally form Little Rock, Arkansas Jennifer graduated from SMU and went through the Sotherby's program In NYC. She's honest and personable and I've really enjoyed working with her over the past two years.
In the show are 20 oil paintings from both my abstract collection and the Texas landscape collection, under the title Rugged Beauty.
Many of the pieces in my abstract collection are on Belgian linen, which create a unique texture as the colors bleed and fade into the fabric.
The Rugged Beauty collection, is a unique and fresh perspective on the Texas landscape. Several pieces were framed for the show and it was worth it.
Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
It's been 8 months since I stopped teaching and began focusing on my art full time. This time period includes the three months of summer when the kids (now 9 and 13 years old) are out of school, which means extra playdates, sleepovers, and basically anything to keep them from watching tv or gaming 24/7. There have been some highs and lows during these 8 months. And I'm thankful for all of them because the lows make the highs so much sweeter.
Recently, two of my cactus paintings were in the winter issue of bungalow magazine. I follow bungalow on Instagram and when the summer issue came out. I was really impressed. I sent an email saying I really enjoyed the issue, all the hard work they were putting into the magazine, and the spread on Marfa. I had just been to Marfa and blogged about it myself. I mentioned I was working on a series of cactus paintings and attached a photo. I didn't ask for anything I just wanted to say hi and tell them how much I enjoyed their magazine. Fast forward to several weeks ago... I get an email asking if they could include a few of my paintings in their upcoming issue.
When I sent that email in the summer I never would have thought it would turn into anything. But it did, and I am incredible thankful.
My friend, Megan Adams Brooks, was also included, which made it even sweeter.
