CURRENT BODY OF WORK...
This new series hides nothing. I'm baring it all for the world to see.
Jenny King's artwork is intended to remind people to go out in the world passionately each day.
The vibrant colors and the inspirational words that are embedded into her paintings are conspiring to uplift our spirits and give us that little extra nudge we could all use at times to be the best version of ourselves.
"I consider it an honor to create an original and unique art work based on a client's photos and accompanying stories. To be able to capture that special memory on canvas in a style that reflects the tastes of the client...I think I get more out of it than they do." ~ J.
There is no extra charge to create a commissioned piece of art. Prices are based on similar sizes and styles of existing work.
This piece was commissioned by a mom who wished to commemorate a day she spent with her son on a trip to San Francisco...they went to Chinatown to buy kites and then flew them with the city outline and the Golden Gate Bridge laying softly in the background. From a single photograph, this painting was created for them. The spontaneous fun and freedom they experienced that day is forever captured within this painting. It lives above their fireplace.
“I absolutely embrace the fact that I’ve found an outlet to express my thoughts and visions in a way that I can share with others.
"Every time I pick up the brush, I feel like I’m moving and improving my ability to accurately convey what's in my head, heart and soul onto canvas and THAT is very exciting to me!"
Splashes of color can brighten up any space. Color is known to have a therapeutic effect on people. Red, for example, is known to invigorate one's physical energy, vitality, stamina, spontaneity and passion. All these things I need to get through my computer work...but it also seems to get my creativity flowing before I run off to the studio.
Original art brings life and interest into what could otherwise be a boring room...it also serves as a great conversation piece.
Different people see different things in my artwork...and they're all right! There is no one correct answer with art...it's intended to reach deep inside you and bring out whatever aspect of yourself that relates to the piece. Sometimes people are surprised at what kind of art truly moves them. It's a great feeling when that happens.

Jan Westfall correctly guessed 2104's Art Walk Mystery Theme!!
Nothing says success in the workplace like having original artwork on your walls.
"Art makes people proud to work where they do. They point to their corporate or workplace art collections with pride. Seeing original art in the halls, lobbies and offices of their corporate headquarters has unconditionally positive, productive, inspirational and uplifting effects.
"For business people who like to make profits, either directly or indirectly, know that many people decide where to spend their time (and money) based on the art that businesses have on display. For example, commercial spaces such as restaurants, hotels and meeting places often attract people because of their impressive art and interior decor."

We add a little twist to Marietta's First Friday Art Walk...Instead of featuring an artist each month, we feature a new theme. Our house artists each interpret said theme and compliment it by creating a body of work. Then we take it a step further and tie each show's title together with an undisclosed, or "mystery", common thread, only to reveal one "clue" at a time. The concept ensures art enthusiasts the opportunity to be the first to view and own the freshest in original fine art.
MYSTERY THEME? Please explain...
The best way to relate the Mystery Theme thing is to share the previous year’s set up. Each month of the season, Red Door announces the new show title along with their art created especially to support the theme.
In 2013, the first year the “mystery theme” was Bruce Springsteen, supporting shows included Secret Garden, My Hometown, Human Touch, Working on a Dream, I’m on Fire, Dancing in the Dark and 10th Avenue Freeze Out.
Need another example? Last year’s lineup included A Room With a View, All the Pretty Horses, It’s Complicated, Beaches, Music & Lyrics, Sex & The City and Moonstruck. The common thread?...Chick Flicks.
Guests are encouraged to play along by submitting their “guess” of what they think the Mystery Theme is. The first one to guess correctly is awarded a $50 Gallery Cash Card at the end of the season.
