Jen Evenhus is a nationally recognized,  award winning artist. Jennifer's bold use of color is what first attracts the eye. Her subject is often paint itself, fascinated with the painterly effects one can achieve with pastels, or the wonderful transparency of oils.

Whether with oils or pastels, Jennifer enjoys the process of painting as much as completing the work. Always sorry to see the journey end, Jen describes the process as a journey through unknown territory.

Even though she has a good idea of the outcome she wants, she is careful not to become locked into an idea, staying open to all those little accidents that happen along the way, careful not to cover them up.

These accidents she describes as unforeseen treasures that give a painting character, depth, and movement.

Jennifer's work is often very abstract, using earthscapes as a starting point, she paints out most of the detail, leaving just enough for the viewer to become lost in a new world.

Jen is a Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America; a Distinguished Pastelist in the Northwest Pastel Society, and signature member of Pastel Society of the West Coast.

Jennifer has exhibited work in New York City at the National Arts Club; Denver, Colorado at Carol Siple Gallery; Sacramento and Redding, California; New Orleans at the World Trade Center; Coos Bay and Bend, Oregon and Seattle, Issaquah, Everett, Wenatchee and Anacortes, Washington to name a few.  She enters and is accepted in many juried shows each year and has numerous national awards to her credit.

William F. Reese Passed Away Last Week

We have lost one of the great Northwest artists and a great friend. Bill Reese, who had suffered for many years from a dibilitating lung disease, passed away recently, leaving a hole in our hearts. I was blessed to know Bill and even took a workshop from him many years ago. He will be sorely missed as a friend, artist, and mentor. Prayers of sympathy go out to his wife, Fran, and his whole family. Jennifer Evenhus

Hi Jennifer,
Your painting of orange slices brightens our kitchen! Very vibrant and cheery. I'm heading back up to Stehekin tomorrow to do some more painting.

Hi Jen - The more I look at your abstract - the more I like it...don't mess with it for awhile! That was a really fun afternoon!

Hi! It's fun to hear you describe your process. I can totally relate. That's what I love (and hate) the most about abstract. It's just you and the canvas - just looking. No other agendas. Sometimes I pester myself into thinking I shouldn't have to reconstruct so much - so I love hearing your process. That's what its about. "It ain't over till its over". Sometimes that's quite soon...other times its a long unfathomable journey.

I love your use of paint, as well. I especially like the Road to Boatramp piece. Nice color.

Good morning Jennifer! Nope, no more gallery business for me. As far as traveling, I always taken a month a year to get a new vision of the world and reconnect with plein air. I like your new work. Al
