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

Thank you all for your thoughtful comments. It really means a lot to have your support through all of this. I'm back to painting again and it feels good. We're putting good healing thoughts out there and my mom feels your prayers too! There's a light surrounding her. This month, being Breast Cancer Awareness month, it's on all of our my minds. This year more than ever. I've had my own scare with a lump and I'm kicking myself now, wishing I had demanded the biopsy 6 months ago when I had the ultrasound. I just had the 6 month follow up ultrasound and they told me that I need a biopsy now because "it shouldn't have grown that much in 6 months".  Ok…that doesn't sound good. If I had just asked for the biopsy back then I wouldn't be worried now. But…my P.A. said the breast imaging center is overly cautious about things and since they weren't worried, he's wasn't either. I went along with that and now it's grown. It's a tumor, no matter what, so I'll most likely have to have a lumpectomy or more. But in the meantime...I'm painting and large! 
I love painting on this size canvas. So much freedom!

You are "painting and large", that is a good thing. Your lady in the red dress is pretty and bold, like you as you face your giants.
Yes, I'm ready for it! Thanks so much Terra!

This is wonderful!
Thank you Sheila! I really love painting this large! It's kind of hard to photograph though. I'm going to have to work on that.:)
