“Guardians” by Jenni Burke

Since the first Jasper Series has been completed, I’ve started a second one. This one focuses more on the magic of the sky spirits. Of course, the mountains will still make their mark as well!

Sailboats and Shenanigans

This long weekend has proven to be pretty productive for creating!

I finished custom order #3 (below)…

I am literally waiting for paint to dry as I write.

The custom pup is a 30″x40″ canvas, which I’ve laid out the background on. I’ve prepped 3 new canvases for the art show coming up in July: some new Jasper paintings. I bought new pens for the line drawings too, but realized when I got home I needed a new sketch book as well! I guess a trip to the Painted Tree is due this week…

Feeling super excited about another show, this time co-hosting with my friend and fellow artist Jennifer Trefiak (and a sneak peak of what she’s working on below).

The Jasper Journey

The Jasper (art) Journey continues… After meeting with my art-bestie Jennifer Trefiak this week, it became clear to me that despite already hosting “Two Days In Jasper” this journey is far from over.

“Round Mountains” 22″ x 22″ $350

When I hosted the original show, I chose only 7 images to paint, out of hundreds of photos. Out of the 7 paintings, 5 were for sale (4 sold), one was not for sale, and one was not complete (and is still a work in progress).  Round Mountains (posted above) is the final piece of the first series that is still available for purchase!

With that in mind, I’m planning another show with J.T. for this summer. I have a plan for 3 more paintings, as well as a series of line drawings. Every time I do one, they sell right off Facebook! Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming show…

Meanwhile, check out the line drawings I started below, many are already gone!
