Artist Update

Jane Davies


    

My art is always changing, though I’m not sure I would call it evolution.  I generally have about three different series or ideas going at once.  In the last few years I’ve experimented with working on a larger scale than is comfortable.  I’ve also worked on large series of very small pieces, 4”x4” and 8”x8”.  I seem to be more and more interested in subtle colors, lots of open space, rather than the brighter work I was doing previously.  On the other hand, my smaller work is still pretty colorful.  Read more

Jane Davies' advice to someone who wants to learn to paint: 

"Get some paints, apply them to paper.  Even if it is a cheap set of watercolors or craft paint.  Just making marks can give you an idea of what it is you want to learn.  Then take a workshop, or buy a book or video.  Make sure it is appropriate for beginners.  Look through artists web sites to see what appeals to you."
