In the Woods at Gambrill Mill - Oil

 A painter and musician for thirty years, Jeanean’s paintings are testament to her grasp of structure, composition and rhythm. Her pieces are built from gestural impressions and layered energetic surfaces. Her plein-air style reflects a direct reaction to nature.  Her bravura brushstrokes capture fleeting moments of billowing clouds, distant mountains and waterways and open fields bursting with color. Her style incorporates both subtle, smokey, scumbling and an aggressively loaded brush.  Jeanean's direct bravura painting style is influenced by early 19th c. European Barbizon School, Hudson River School and American Impressionist and realist work.  Her palette reflects the immediate feeling of light and air.   Jeanean's figurative work is equally energetic and yet sensitive, combining subtle glazes and strong direct painting.  Jeanean loves the


Maryland countryside as well as traveling to distant locations. She is currently working on a series in New Mexico.      Her lifelong interest in painting was nurtured by such mentors as Abbey Sangiamo, Phillip Koch, Raoul Middleman and Peter Collier. Jeanean has a B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art, teaches locally and travels to paint on location
