Jennifer Riefenberg: I prefer painting from life. Painting is exploring and discovering, healing and learning, admiring and preserving. As a painting takes on its own voice, it becomes a living experience with each brushstroke a breath toward its creation. I hope that my artwork communicates the experiences that I have and captures the very essence of the beautiful world through my eyes and interpretation. “Gray Extreme” recently won an HM Award at a regional OPA show.
