Jeff A. Evans
Sometimes the most inspiring moments in life seem fleeting. In plein air painting we have but a two-hour chance to capture a moment as the sun will dance across the landscape, a building, a person or still life.
I love this challenge and opportunity to tell a story or my point of view through paint, and what it is that has inspired me to memorialize this moment on canvas. I hope my work might invite the viewer to take a moment to see this place as I have, maybe themselves be inspired, or that their imagination might provoke thoughts to a place of their own.
I make my living as an architect and designer, bringing this perspective to my work as an artist where I strive for representational accuracy, design clarity, while putting down colorful and painterly brush work in my interpretation of a subject as is familiar in impressionist painting. My work has been recognized with awards in the OPAS 2017 and 2018 annual competitions, and I have been accepted into 2019 Plein Air Easton as a juried artist.
