The Isthmus by Jesse Powell

The Isthmus by Jesse Powell  –  16×20 Oil

Jesse Powell. Wow. His paintings are amazing. Those subtle strokes that depict sun or shade bring his paintings to life. The water in this particular painting drew me in, it’s so clean, so beautiful with the mountain in the distance, the shadows of the tree, and the colors. Gorgeous!

Read a bit about Jesse, from his website:

Jesse Powell was born in 1977 in Los Angeles, California. He has lived most of his life on the California coast, where he has developed a deep attachment and respect for a rapidly disappearing natural landscape. A third generation artist, Jesse’s love for art stemmed at an early age, mostly from the influence of his father,  artist John Powell. He now resides in Carmel, Ca. 

Jesse graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in painting and drawing, and went on to study Russian Impressionism in the Republic of Georgia under the tutelage of Nicholai Dubovik, Ilya Yatsenko, and John Wurdeman. His education  continued with numerous trips to the Scottsdale Artist School to study with painters such as Matt Smith, George Strickland, and Kenn Backhaus, among others.

Jesse’s paintings have been exhibited in  numerous solo and group exhibitions, including shows at  The Laguna Art Museum, The Pasadena Museum of California History, The Pasadena Museum of California Art, and The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and the Autry National Center.    He is an artist member of the Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society and a  Signature Member of the California Art Club and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association.
