In the Art Bar: Jennifer McGill


"I am drawn to beauty, composition, light, and color. My focus as an artist is to capture the world around me through painting. I scout locations, sketch, take pictures and plan for success. I meditate on what I call “the next”, which is the visualization of desired results before painting. The complex interplay of elements: warm, cool, texture, smoothness, edge and shape are all employed to help tell a story. The success of my painting is defined by an intersection of how closely elements, subject matter, and my vision align. My artistic purpose is to capture a story of the beauty and culture of our time." -Jennifer McGill
