Stumptown Art Studio is presenting an opening reception for “Watercolor On My Mind” featuring the art of Jeanne Moe on Thursday, June 6 from 6-9 p.m. The exhibit of her work will be on display through July 1, 2013.
Although she has been painting throughout her busy life, Jeanne explains, “I don’t really think of myself as an “artist”, but I know it gives me great pleasure to put color on the paper.” She wants the pictures she paints to have a positive effect on people and for them to respond with smiles and happy feelings. Her use of color and subjects represent these intentions, and fit her persona.
As a student of art, art history and as an art collector, Jeanne shares her experience. “I think everyone should take an art course,” she explains. “It changes the way one looks at the world. Shapes and colors become clearer. A person begins to really notice and study their surroundings.” Others may take from her inspiration by viewing her show.
