Featured Artist: Jane Hunt!

West of Town by Jane Hunt 20×16″ Oil

Jane Hunt. Look at that sky! What a dream. Beautiful light! I love the little bits of light hitting the water – it makes this painting come alive!

Jane, a fabulous artist originally from England now lives in the beautiful state of Colorado – I’m sure the source of endless inspiration for her paintings!

Read a bit about Jane, from her website:

“Even though I paint a lot of studies on location, my landscapes are actually less about describing a specific place than they are about the feelings evoked.  In an impressionistic, tonal style I hope to convey the emotional connection that I had with each scene.

Moving cross-Atlantic three times in my early years, I spent much of my life with an underlying sense of homesickness.  This yearning propelled me to create a sense of ‘home’ within my landscapes.

My greatest hope is that my work gives its viewers this same sense of comfort and connectedness; a gentle place to rest.”

Following her move from England to the US as a teenager, Jane Hunt received her B.F.A. in illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art.

After working as an illustrator for several years Hunt eventually returned to her true love: landscape oil painting.

A sought after instructor, Hunt will again be a faculty member of the Plein Air Convention in 2017 and a demo artist/speaker at the Oil painters of America National Exhibition.

Her work has been featured in Southwest Art, Fine Art Connoisseur, Art of the West, Plein Air Magazine and others.

Jane’s award winning paintings have been exhibited at notable galleries and museums internationally.

Now based in Colorado, she frequently paints plein air, and continues to be awed by the beauty surrounding her.

Hunt’s work is represented by galleries in the US, as well as her native England.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
