Jean-Pierre Jacquet. I know I’ve mentioned before… that I love darkness in paintings, especially near an area with light. It makes the painting more dramatic. I love these trees (and their shadows), they have such life, and you only see a small portion of them!

Interior paintings are so fabulous, yet you don’t see many of them. Is there anything better than a painting within a painting (or in this case, several paintings)!? Jean-Pierre is an interesting guy (from what I’ve read), with great paintings, be sure to check out his work!

Read a bit about Jean-Pierre, from his website:

I am a French-American painter. And an occasional film animator (some of my film animation work is viewable at http://www.jeanpierrejacquet.com). For many years, it was the other way around. I devote most of my painting activities to “plein air” painting, or, as the French say, “peinture sur le motif”, i.e on the spot painting.

I like to paint what I see, rather than what I know, and try to uncover the hidden designs in my subject matters, be it straight nature scenes or urban landscapes. I am partial to free and bold brushstrokes which help me keep a certain sketchiness to my paintings.

My influences are eclectic so I will spare you a useless enumeration.

Under the Awards & Distinctions portion of Jean-Pierre’s About the Artist page is this, a sense of humor, I love it!:

I am not dead yet but 2 of my films are part of 2 museums: Flagrant Délit is part of the MoMA in NYC, and Contrapunto is part of the Tanz Museum in Düsseldorf in Germany.
