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

Been busy…here's my latest painting!





This is an original impressionist oil painting, of a woman. She's sitting in her vintage hat and gloves possibly waiting for someone. Maybe just waiting for the rain to stop. What if she's enjoying the sound of the rain? The colors are blue, grey, sea foam green, and a very subdued purple. Her dress is a dark crimson red, plum hue. This painting was completed with high quality gamblin oil paints with a palette knife and brushes for lots of interesting textures. Inspired by vintage fashion, rainy days, and my tube of phthalo blue! 

Thanks for looking! 


here's what's on my easel right now…

Oh Jen, your female figures are so incredible. They are charming, sophisticated and attractive. Fabulous job! Susan
Thank you so much Susan! That's so nice to hear!:) I really enjoy painting the beautiful fashions of the past.
Thank you Terra! I was ready for the rain and the feeling it gives. I've been trying to add more feeling with color in my paintings and this one just happened.
