DescriptionI love to garden. I'm not saying I'm great at it, but I love the physical process of planting, weeding, and watching the birds, butterflies, and bees enjoying your efforts. Thus far, I have avoided growing roses, however. And alas, I am now the proud owner of several lovely pink, red, and yellow rose bushes. This painting is inspired by this new collection and hobby. And for those of my collectors who love a pinkish hue to their art - here's your chance! I don't often paint with pink (not sure why) but this piece imbues a soft pink and beige antique quality. I hope you enjoy my Softly Spoken Garden!
Jennifer Lommers, Corvallis, OR Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement My natural surroundings are my constant inspiration. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have long enjoyed the beauty this area affords. As an avid hiker & camper, I find mountains and ocean beaches to be some of my favorite places. Now residing in beautiful Willamette Valley, I am enjoying the open spaces of the rural farm landscape. I enjoy painting every day and being an active member of my local artist communities. I hope you enjoy my work, and sharing in my artistic journey.
