About the Artist:
Barbara Jaenicke has had a fascination with snow since childhood. She’s always loved the look, sound and feel of snow, and even the smell in the air when it snowed. She grew up in New Jersey where she experienced occasional snow, but lived in Atlanta, Georgia when her painting career began. In the late ‘90s she began traveling with her husband to visit his family in Minnesota each winter, and the snowy landscape called to her. In May 2015, Barbara and her family relocated to Bend, Oregon, where snow is also plentiful, if not right in town, a short drive away in the mountains. “Winter Whites” is from a spot located near her home in Bend.
Barbara’s work is represented at Mockingbird Gallery in Bend, Oregon; The Artful Deposit in Bordentown, New Jersey; Stoneheart Gallery in Evergreen, Colorado and Weilerhouse Fine Art Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas.
Barbara’s instructional video series, which includes snow scenes, is available at www.paintingthepoeticlandscape.com.
