Upcoming Shows and Paintings

Hello Everyone,

Spring is finally on the way and I'm gearing up for History Meets the Arts this coming June 12-14. If you have not been to this show, created by Lord Nelson's Gallery in Gettysburg, PA, you must come and see this incredible event. This year, for the first time the show will be held at the Gettysburg College Ballroom. Over 40 nationally renown artists will be in person with their latest works. Besides commissions, I'm working on some beautiful new western wildlife paintings and landscape paintings that I plan to exhibit at History Meets the Arts. See the link above for more details.

Some of you who follow my summer schedule may have noticed that I'm not in Plein Air Easton this year. This is due to the fact that I was invited to paint in the prestigious Door County Plein Air Festival in Door County, Wisconsin which begins the exact same time Plein Air Easton ends. Easton is an incredible event, but given my inability to bi-locate, and a desire for a change of scenery, I had to pass on Easton this year. I wish the artists and staff at Plein Air Easton the best of luck and cool weather.

Weiler House Fine Art Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas recently placed a couple more of my paintings on exhibition in their beautiful gallery. Both of these are incredible oil paintings (see below) with subtle yet powerful color and tonal shifts, sophisticated paint application and enticing composition; one is a national award winner and the other was very recently completed. Contact Weiler House Fine Art to inquire about either of these beautiful pieces at 817-457-3343.

Hello Everyone,

Despite an ice storm and snow in a state that normally doesn't get this kind of weather, the NatureWorks Show was a beautiful event! On top of that, my painting Yellowstone Morning received an Award of Excellence at the show.

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since I last posted, due to software issues. They keep updating software which makes things incompatible, unlike the world of fine art which is a stable source of beauty in our lives.

Don't miss the exhibition of my latest work at the NatureWorks Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma next week. The show times are Friday-Sunday, Feb 28th-March 2nd. This is one of the top wildlife and nature art shows in the world. Don't miss the incredible show! Also be sure to look out for my ad in the upcoming issues of Fine Art Connoisseur.

New Paintings and Great News!

Hello Everyone,
 
I hope that all is well and you are anticipating the joyous season of Christmas! I received some great news the other day, I have been invited to participate in the prestigious Door County Plein Air Festival in Door County Wisconsin, July 2014. This is a great honor since it is by invitation only. I hope you can be there to see all the beautiful art that will be created that week.
 
Below I have two new paintings fresh off the easel. Sadly the digital images don't show the bold brushwork and subtle colors that only an original painting can have. Both of these would make a beautiful Christmas gift for that someone special. If you are interested in adding either of these masterful paintings to your collection, please let me know. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
 
Jason
