22x30 original, water-based paint on paper with oil pastels. Signed.
My work is about the tensions in life – about the difficulties and struggles we face – and how we respond to them. My hope is that when you are faced with your own struggle, my work will encourage you to have hope and joy.
You may see in my paintings the hardness of life – the grief, sadness, anger, and hurt – while also offering the idea that there is hope for healing and growth through the struggle. It is intended to inspire you to live at peace with the complexity of a world full of storms and sunshine - while we mourn the deep loss we each experience, we still seek reasons for hope and joy.
ADDITIONAL POLICIES AND FAQS:
Color nuances cannot be captured perfectly by digital media and vary from screen to screen. Jess’ paintings are often purposely abstracted, up for interpretation. Some markings are flawed purposefully and thus affects the nature of the artwork as a finished piece. You'll be able to enjoy the natural brushstrokes and the ability to "see" the process in the finished piece.
Copyright: As is true with all art under U.S. law, the artist retains reproduction rights and copyright of her created pieces unless she has expressly given her written and signed consent. (This means that it's possible that, in the future, I will create an art print from this original work. Note: An artist's decision to reproduce an original for printing tends to increase the value of an original work.)
The String that Holds it All Together
No returns unless damaged in shipping. If this occurs, please send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I usually ship within 5 business days. Large paper pieces come rolled and are packaged in plastic within a shipping tube. They can be easily unrolled and laid out with books (or similar weight) on the back to regain their flatness.
