Featured artist… Jennifer O’Connell!

 “Bay Window” by Jennifer O’Connell/Image: Left Bank Gallery

Jennifer O’Connell does some amazing interior paintings! This is an artist not afraid of color! Her bold paintings really make a statement… I love the way she did the fireplace in this one, and the light streaming in the window, fabulous!
