Just look at those colors! So very nice, you can just feel that wonderful warm light… this is a pastel done by artist Barbara Jaenicke, this painting is already sold, but I did want to show it to you because it’s amazing! This was the award winner in the 2010 Pastel Society of America Exhibit in NY, New York.
This is an oil painting by Barbara… nice shadows… they make a painting, don’t they? They add life. Very nice! Barbara is represented by several galleries, be sure to check her out!
Read a blip about Barbara from her website:
Born in 1964 and raised in New Jersey, Barbara Courtney Jaenicke loved to draw and paint as a child and decided at an early age to pursue a career in art in one form or another. As an art major in college, Barbara took as many fine art courses as she could, while also taking painting classes outside of her college studies, but in order to have a steady income right after college, she geared her education toward the commercial side and spent a little over a decade of her early career in advertising as an art director, then later worked in marketing communications in the corporate world. In 2002, she was able to turn her focus to her fine art career.
Currently residing in Roswell, GA with her husband and son, Barbara paints landscapes and still life in pastel and oil. When creating her paintings, she rarely copies her subject matter exactly as it appears, but instead adapts the colors and composition into her own interpretation.
Barbara is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, a member of the IAPS Master Circle, a Member of Excellence in the Southeastern Pastel Society, and a member of Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society. She teaches weekly pastel classes locally in the metro Atlanta area and also teaches workshops throughout the US.
