Featured Artist.

Jean Longo

I am a self-taught artist. My paintings are created as reactions to incidents, conversations, or dreams. I find great inspiration from nature, particularly the different texture of natural objects, and I enjoy superimposing shapes of both natural and artificial origin. I am most comfortable in the abstractions, but my abstractions are connected to something real and the titles are clues for what they may be.
I work in oil paints primarily on arches watercolor paper. I begin each painting with an idea in mind, yet this idea may change as the image or textures send me in another direction.
