Surf's Up! New Work by Jeanne Rosier Smith

Inspiration for the wave series:


"I’ve loved the ocean since childhood and more recently, my work is bringing me even closer.  Each painting becomes a sort of living meditation on bodysurfing, feeling the ocean lift and move me along through color, light and moving water.  The ebb and flow of the shoreline constantly changes, as light, tides, and weather shift.  A fiery sunset spilling on wet sand, the quiet joy of dawn, the luminous glow of light through a cresting wave, these constant and recurring miracles of nature keep me painting."


"I love pastel because the rich, pure pigments allow vibrations of color and visual mixing impossible to capture in any other medium."
