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 work...new name for 2020!

 


I haven't posted for awhile, so here's what I've been working on. This one was my latest commissioned painting of daffodils. You might remember seeing a similar painting years ago but much smaller. My client was so happy with her painting and now I have someone else that wants one but even larger! It was so much fun to paint so I'm excited to paint it again.






I've been working as a hairstylist for the last few years after moving back down to southern California. This has taken up some of my painting time but is necessary right now because the cost of living is so much more down here! I'm happy with the balance it gives me though. Being cooped up in my studio gets isolating...something we've all experienced recently! The hard part is finding the right balance while still enjoying time with my new hubby! Yes, I got my married during covid! We had a perfect wedding in Dana Point. Everything was perfect! So now that I'm married I'm taking his name but not sure how I'm signing my paintings. I have always signed J. Beaudet but want to add my new name or maybe even transition to signing without Beaudet altogether. So you may see some different signatures from me in my new works until I decide on one. If you're a collector of my work you can tell it's mine by my brushwork, palette knife texture, and choice of subject and colors I use.I'm also left handed and I'm sure there's some way to tell. Anyway, I think my work is unique enough to be recognized without knowing who painted it. So who knows? Maybe when I die, these different signatures could be worth a fortune! ha!
