what she knows

I know that a friend's home can feel as comfy as the well known pillows of a favored couch. No wonder I want to visit again and again.
And so, I have invited myself, 3 kids and hubby in tow, to Jennifer and Dick's this can I resist the call of her barnyard and that fabulous studio! I love Jennifer's work and seeing her
inspirations is a real treat.
Jennifer Lanne paints what she knows, what she loves...flora, fauna and farm. Her true affection for her surrounds shows in her work. The images she captures brim with the details of her life. The roosters the run across her canvases are from the yard, the pigs that jump across stiles are her "girls" Olive and Violet, and the landscapes that fill her work with rolling hills and sentinel like trees are the views she sees
from her 1760s home.

The images above were taken on a day trip I made with Shannon and the kids a few weeks back. We made the jaunt to Ballston Spa to plan for the gallery event "BOUNTY", Jennifer's show currently up at The Country Life Gallery in downtown Warwick.
As we prepared for the show and now the upcoming reception, Jennifer and I have worked closely. It's given me the opportunity to fall head over heels for her work at the same time we have been able to become closer as friends. This might just be the first group project I'm enjoying;
or pehaps, through my business I have made friendship the group project!
Thanks to Jennifer for being my friend, and for all the hard work she has put into this show. Please join me in wishing her the best of success!
If you'd like to meet Jennifer, she will be at the Gallery from 2pm-7pm
on the 15th along with
Jill Wiener the creator of Earth Girl Pottery, and my great gal pal.
xxoo Jen O'Connor
