New paintings of San Clemente California by Jen Beaudet Zondervan

 I'm working on loosening up...once again. I want my paintings to be more fresh and clean. I love working with a palette knife, but sometimes I get a little too much texture.  The tree painting is inspired from a walk in Rancho San Clemente. It was during quarantine and everything was so amazingly beautiful that day. I think it was still March.  8x10 $175 11x14 $225 This one is not finished but you can see where it's going. It's San Clemente, California at my favorite beach called Calafia. I still have to add the railroad crossing in this one. I thought about not adding it but anyone that knows the area might wonder. I think this spot is memorable because of the palm trees lined up. I love it because of all the beautiful Bougainvillea everywhere. It's amazing how it blooms all year round (or at least it seems to). Anyway, I'm still working on it and may add some clouds.  Both will be available in my etsy shop soon but feel free to contact me if you're interested

Lilacs and Spring!


I had to smile...I do walk my dog sometimes, mostly he walks me and that's not so fun!

Pretty pictures and the painting is gorgeous!

Hi Janie! Ha Ha! My dog does the same thing; not fun at all! She really just likes to run off the leach in the woods!:)

Thank you all for your visits and sweet comments!:)
Oh dearest one, your work always makes me SMILE SO!!!!!! I remember last summer, being in my beautiful garden laden with lavender. I sat in the gentle June sun and watercolored. The bleeding of the aqua color, running on my paper gave me such a rush of JOY; I am looking forward to more of that this summer, and when I see your work here, it is gearing me up to the task. LILACS are fabulous. I remember in college, I was walking home with a friend. We passed a lilac bush. She had said that she loved to eat the flowers....HMMMMMMM........she took a small petal and lightly chewed on it. I NEVER EVER EVER do such things, but she said how delicious it was. OK, so I took just a quick 1 second nibble. OMG! I just about FELL ASLEEP WALKING! NEVER EVER AGAIN!!!!

Enjoy the coming springtime in your heart....Anita
What a great story Anita! I almost spilled my coffee!! I've never tried lilacs...but I have nibbled on a few rose petals:)
