Expanding On The Arts

There is something about the crisp air of September that always helps clear my head, and get me motivated again. Since August I have been working on a few custom oil paintings, and playing around with some merchandise from previous works. Tote bags, mugs, and the 2021 calendar are a few on my list ofContinue reading “Expanding On The Arts”

Adventures in Art | Summer 2019

Summer has just begun but holy moly with a bang! At the end of June I wrapped up a huge custom painting, which was fun but also very challenging (it was a surprise gift, so very little communication was made during the process). I was  happy  to  hear  it  was  a hit! Then at theContinue reading “Adventures in Art | Summer 2019”

New Year New Plans

2018 has been pretty amazing. I have sold 12 of 13 paintings from my Canada series (the final one left is Saskatchewan, if you’re interested); I have put plans in the works for a future (art) trip to Iceland (Check out my Facebook Page: Jennifer Anne Burke, The Iceland Project); and Jennifer Trefiak and IContinue reading “New Year New Plans”

When Art Becomes Work

It has been a very interesting month for me. As I’ve mentioned, I have a show to set up in Campbellford the first week in May, and I’ve been trying to tie up a lot of loose ends on old works of art, and have also been pulling old pieces back out to sell. ThisContinue reading “When Art Becomes Work”

Canadian Custom Art | Rocky Mountains

Last year a friend of mine drove through the Rocky Mountains with her family (one year after I started pumping out my Jasper paintings)… when she returned and shared her photos, I asked to use one to do a line drawing. Which I did, and gifted to her shortly after. This year, right before myContinue reading “Canadian Custom Art | Rocky Mountains”

2016 Art Exposure

Since hosting my private art show “Two Days In Jasper” in December 2015, my passion for painting has exploded. I started this website, became a member of “Spirit of the Hills” and 2016 has been an incredible year (and it isn’t even over yet); I completed four large custom paintings, I co-hosted a successful artContinue reading “2016 Art Exposure”

Sacred Sundays

Lately my weekends have been consumed by art. No complaints here! Between custom pieces and preparing for the upcoming art show (July 30th), I have my hands full. I consider my weekends sacred, and use my time quite deliberately. However, last night I found myself alone on a Saturday night, not quite ready to paintContinue reading “Sacred Sundays”

Sailboats and Shenanigans

This long weekend has proven to be pretty productive for creating! I finished custom order #3 (below)… …and began custom order #4 (rough outline and paint dabs 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 preppedContinue reading “Sailboats and Shenanigans”
