Rogue Valley - art classes starting. Vacancy for 2 more students.

I have been asked to teach in Central Point, Oregon. And gladly accepted.

The classes start this Tuesday evening (18th), I think (if not, it's the following week). They run for 6 weeks.

There is room for 2 more students.

If you're interested, please contact me - artistjilliancrider (at gmail). Or if you'd please pass it on to others that may be interested, I'd appreciate it.


Adirondack Chair - Lake of the Woods, Oregon - miniature watercolor painting.

I'm still trying to find time to do my dollhouse miniature paintings. This past week I managed to do this one of a bright red Adirondack Chair with matching geraniums at Lake of the Woods resort in Oregon. It's watercolor, 2" x 1.5"

I have 5 others currently listed on eBay.

It's a lovely place to enjoy the wonderful summer days here in Southern Oregon.
Thanks for looking - if you're 'local' you might recognize some other spots in SO. :)

And now, 3 more little paintings - dollhouse size original watercolors.

Yesterday, and today I've just completed 3 more miniature dollhouse (1:12 scale) paintings. All original watercolors from local scenes. 2" x 1 1/2" approximately. 

I've listed them on eBay - you'll find them HERE

 This one is "Wash Day" a very old colonial ranch house a few miles from me. 

 I also have very good news for collectors. A frame maker I have dealt with for over 10 years, who specializes in miniature frames is working with me to offer frames for these new works of mine. Anyone who buys from me will be given this contact information. When I was collecting miniatures, trying to frame them was very difficult until I found someone. 

Anyway - take a look at my 3 newest. 
"Wash Day" 
"The Secluded Garden" 
"On Hidden Pond" Anyone in the Rogue Valley happen to know where they these locations are? The valley has such a treasure trove of wonderful, picturesque places.

2 more little paintings - miniature art for dollhouses.

I'm enjoying doing some miniature dollhouse paintings. I'm sticking with 2" x 1.5" format, in watercolors. I have reconnected with a wonderful lady who can be contacted for frames for them. I did two more this past week, that is all I had time for. A local garden that caught my eye, with a 'wheelbarrow' full of flowers being hit by wonderful sunshine ("Fun In The Sun"). And an old pump house from one of the many nearby pear orchards. I still have one romantic beach scene that didn't sell from the past week. You can see my latest miniature paintings listed HERE on eBay. Thank you for looking. ~Jillian

"The Pirate Rogue" - watercolor painting from Rogue Renaissance Faire

I fell in love with Renaissance Fairs in 1998 when I went to my first in Atlanta, Georgia. It also wet my appetite for other events.

This is from 2011. "The Pirate Rogue" - watercolor painting from Rogue Renaissance Faire.
5x7" The costume is wonderful in its detail - a great mix of colors and textures. But how costumes like this get worn on such hot days, I will never know.

Art in the Park

A couple of months ago it was warm enough to venture out for a day in the park (Bear Creek). Art supplies packed weren't the usual traditional kind. For some reason I'm a bit 'off' of traditional art for a while, it doesn't appeal to me - too much planning and discipline. Anyway, I've been wanting to do some mixed media, especially incorporating some very old journal paper I have.

It was a very pleasant day. Not overly scenic, but a little creek that had the dog wading and drinking in it, and kids exploring its shores, made it interesting. A background of trees with fresh new spring foliage, in contrasting shades.

From where I sat it was quite relaxing for a change.
The art work isn't finished, the page is much larger - I am going to add some collage 'stuff' - it's still in planning stages, but some elements are coming together well.
Art can be where ever you find it, and doesn't have to be traditional or 'perfect'. Just enjoy!

"Fall Inn" Historic Inn ACEO watercolor painting, Prospect, Oregon.

Just listed on eBay - "Fall Inn" watercolor ACEO 2.5x3.5"

I love the blue with the orange, and the wonderful build-up of fall leaves. This is an historic hotel (Inn) in Prospect, Oregon, all decked out in its season's colors. The hotel is over 120 year old and even had presidents and other notable people stay there.

It's one of my favorite photo-taking areas in Southern Oregon.
