painting art

A few years back while in Bordeaux, France, I snapped a photo of a pigeon sitting atop the head of a statue. Though I felt almost sacrilegious doing so (the statue was part of a cathedral's exterior) it made a striking subject for a watercolor: the absurd combination of a bird unabashedly resting upon such a solemn scene.
And those folds of cloth. Irresistible.

As an art student I initially was required to draw others' art. Translating a 3-dimensional piece of art onto a piece of paper was an interesting exercise.


  1. Your work leaves me breathless, Jenni. Do you sell any of it yet? Just wondering...

  2. That is gorgeous. It reminds me of Sargent's italian watercolors.

  3. I am so impressed with the fabric. Fabric and faces are my perennial watercolor downfall.
