Jean Marshall is an artist who enjoys putting her brush to different types of painting, including still life. Here we see a painting of a delicate china cup, ripe red grapes and fragrant fresia. Each grape is painted differently to reflect exactly how the light plays off its reflective skin. The fresia petals and leaves are painted in impressionistic detail, and the fragile cup looks like you could pick it up. A gorgeous study of this composition, made contemporary with the dark background and rich blue table. This is a wonderful gem to add to a gallery wall, or hold its own on a tiny wall or bookcase.

Jean Marshall, an oil painter born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada has not forgotten her love (and fear) of the rocky coastal waterways and the rugged cliffs, the poetic streams and the little waterfalls. She is one of the original members of the Plein Air Adirondack School of Painters founded by Publisher, Eric Rhoads. An invitation from the Publisher to join the group of masters and their friends took her work beyond the studio to the mountains & valleys of New York. Jean has taken classes from numerous renowned painters. She won the Bronze Award 2015 and the Curators Award 2019, at the Homer Watson Gallery and Museum. One of her paintings recently won a global competition and was subsequently published in an art book. Her work is collected across North America, and most recently a piece was sent to the Yukon.
Jean always using the best supplies that hold archival quality for her collectors and their families to own through generations because as Jean says “Art has meaning beyond words, filled with so many stories to see. It’s documentation.”
