THE JOURNEY TO is an original oil painting of a sweeping landscape of shoreline, mountains and water. The tiny buildings set on the other shore, along with the bridge and boat, seen as tiny actions from afar, create a story within this piece. Even the frame with its look of wood, painting over and over again with black marine paint adds to the tale. This is a compelling piece done in an interesting format, and would fit wonderfully above a buffet or console table.

The Artist: 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.”
