Contemporary Ocean Painting By Jennifer Morrison Godshalk SOLD To A Collector In Florida, Ocean Waves



Ocean Waves

This painting is 30 x 40 inches and is oil on canvas.  I painted this artwork with a palette knife, adding blue tones along with turquoise and green oil paints.  I layered the white splashes with thick texture which you can see in the image below:


Thick textured layered oil paints really helped bring to life the crashing waves creating wonderful motion  and contrast.  I can hear the waves crashing while viewing this painting!

This is a SOLD commissioned painting for a collector in Florida and I was happy to paint it for their vacation home.

Giclee Canvas hand signed and numbered prints are now available!


Enjoy!

After The Rain
48x48 Inches
Contemporary Bear Oil Painting

This colorful bear painting is finished and ready to head for Elinoff Gallery in Telluride, Colorado!

This painting is layers upon layers of speckled, colorful oil paints which were applied with a palette knife.

I enjoy painting these grizzlies as they are so full of muscle, character and fur!
I kept the painting similar to my other painting titled "Colorful Reflections" as requested by the art gallery.

Here you can see the colorful, speckled oil paints which have been layered to enhance the muscular/bone structure to this bear.  This painting is truly unique in style, and impressive in person!

Colorful, Fun Bear Paintings By Colorado Fine Artist Jennifer Morrison Godshalk


Daydreaming Bear
24 x 24 x 1 3/4 Inches
Acrylic On Canvas


Sweet Dreams Bear
24 x 24 x 1 3/4 Inches
Acrylic On Canvas

These two bears are fun, whimsical paintings splashed with acrylic colors!

I had a great time painting these as it is a fun break from the heavy oil paints.  I got the idea after painting the painting below titled "Paint Horse"

Paint Horse

This painting is amazing in person and after painting it I really wanted to try a couple of fun bear paintings. Unlike this horse painting, the bears are loose and free, no muscular definition or shading, just paint splashed with a palette knife and parts of the canvas untouched.  

It is always fun to create new ideas and move forward with different techniques!

Prints are available and information about original paintings can be found at my website.


Enjoy!

Jennifer Morrison Godshalk Contemporary Horse Painting, Out Of The Blue Available At Elinoff Gallery In Telluride, Colorado


Out Of The Blue
20x16 Inches

This painting is a palette knife oil painting on canvas.  I first added the definition colors, defining the muscles and shadowing of the horse.  I continued with layering the colors utilizing thick layers of oil paints to blend the contrasting hues until I received the look I was trying to achieve.  
I simply love the outcome of this artwork and I would like to repaint it on a larger scale.

This painting is available at my newest gallery representation at Elinoff Gallery in Telluride, Colorado!
Prints are available as well.  Click here!

Enjoy!

An Abstract Contemporary Horse Painting By Colorado Artist Jennifer Morrison Godshalk


Fire Dance Horse II
16x20 Inches
Oil On Canvas
SOLD

This is a commissioned painting a lady ordered from me for a gift to give for Christmas.  She loved my original Fire Dance painting and this one is almost exactly the same.  I added more shading in the muscular structure of the horse to add detail, and the background is slightly different.

This is one of my favorite paintings!  I love it as this horse is emerging from the fire against the corner of the cool blue background.  My favorite touch is the highlighted yellows with palette knife texture adding just the right touch!
Enjoy!

A Colorful Buffalo Painting By Contemporary Colorado Fine Artist Jennifer Morrison Godshalk, Strength Of The Bison


Strength Of The Bison
A Contemporary, Colorful Buffalo Painting
This painting is 40x40 inches and 1.5 inches deep on a gallery wrapped canvas.  This is a commissioned painting I painted for a lady in Grand Junction, Colorado.  Her husband contacted me some time ago inquiring about a bison painting for his wife for Christmas.  He ended up abandoning the surprise and telling her about it so she could decide what colors she wanted.  She told me light and dark turquoise, rich reds, and different brown hues.  Well, here is the finished product and this is by far my favorite painting!
I will deliver this painting in person, as a road trip to Grand Junction is a little less than shipment costs on this large painting.  ROAD TRIP - Yeah!!!

I am offering both prints of the full painting, and because of the intricate details and colors to this buffalo face, I am also providing facial prints as well!

Feel free to contact me for your commissioned work!

Colorado Fine Artist Jennifer Morrison Godshalk With Her Latest Realism Horse Painting



"Reggie"

Original Oil Painting
30x40 Inches, 1.5 Inches Deep Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Reggie was an enjoyable horse to paint.  He is a commissioned horse painting and I really enjoyed painting this handsome horse!   With many layers of colors and texture, and hours of drying time in between, Reggie is ready to package up and ship out to Wisconsin!

He was a challenge with the dark background and his multicolored coat.  The painting is awesome in person and the people who have seen it so far all have the same reaction, saying they want to reach out and pet him!

Enjoy!
