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

I revised this painting from a few months ago. changed the flowers, added a path and a cute little cottage. I'm finally happy with. I used a palette knife completely on this one, except for the lower hills. That's the only area I didn't retouch. It's an 18x24 inch so it's just the right size for any spot! 

I'm excited to be working on a new website but remember what a hard time I have making little choices like the font to use. I have no problem when working on a painting, even abstract, but when it comes to graphic design I'm overwhelmed with all of the choices! 

I'll let you all know when it's done and hopefully you'll join me over there! 



This is one of your best yet...and with a knife!

I am so inept with computers...yet I can work a power drill. We all have talents that would seem to relate (as far as figuring things out) but they don't always. If you need help, I have a few gals that do this cheap.

Happy New Year!

Thank you Jane! Happy New Year!
I may need to take you up on that! I'm using Wordpress (recommended by too many to not use) so it's a whole new world! Stay tuned...
