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

New Vintage Lady Painting


It's been awhile since I've painted a vintage lady. This piece was done for last weeks challenge on DPW, "paint your undies".  This was fun to do. I'm going to have to retake the photo though because some of the details got a little washed out, such as the table. 

Thanks for your visit and your comments!

How lovely, Jennifer. And your fall scenes! Oh, so beautiful. Susan
What a gorgeous painting, Jennifer. I love the deep purples of the pretty lady's clothing, and the pearls and flowers on the table.

I'm feeling I have so much to catch up with in your blog and store. The Path To Fall painting is magnificent; gosh what a beautiful job you did on those autumn colors and with the light. Also, the most recent island paintings are so realistic, evoking mood and memory!

Love seeing new vintage ladies. Isn't she lovely there, as caught in the mirror...

Of course you know I love your art, Jennifer!

Lovely boudoir scene with beautiful warm colors.Must have been difficult to do the reflection so it seems in the right position, but you did it perfectly !
Thanks so much for all your comments!
Jane-I thought is would be a challenge but attempted it without any pressure. When I'm not worried about it turning out right it's easier:)
I still nee to take another photo in better light to show more subtle details that got lost.
This tells a story - and with my own personal take, I love the fact that she is getting ready for a romantic date. Universal theme here.
Really lovely, Jennifer.
Thank you Julie. I like to have a story in mind when I'm painting. You probably do that as well. It's hard not to and I think that helps convey the emotions I trying to put into each piece.
