S: Lifescapes by Jeani Martini

BC: Every time I look at these paintings it brings back memories...the smells, sights and sounds of each one I painted. Most of them are happy, some sad, but they all reflect the challenge knowing at some time in our lives we know we have to move forward, and for some of us the words "just keep painting," are in our soul.......... Jeani Martini

4: Jeani Martini I grew up in west Sonoma county, riding horseback all over the hills of Occidental with my friends. I attended Jonive School, a one room school with 14 other students from 1st to 8th grade. My family had cows and chickens on our ranch and I used to love drawing them, and of course, the horses! I took art in high school, then after graduation, I attended beauty college, a kind of extension of my creativity. After getting married and having my daughter, I started painting again starting with animals for her room. After painting from photos, I discovered plein air painting. It only seemed natural for me to be out in the countryside painting scenes of the places I had ridden with my horse many years before. The pastoral scenes with the cows and horses, old barns, the redwoods, the ocean, vineyards and farmlands, are like capturing a moment in time. Some of the paintings I have done of old structures have now since been torn down. | So I guess, my paintings are like a history book of Sonoma County for the last 20 years. Most of the paintings were done on location, some from photos I have taken, and some from friends. The animals are always done from photos, because they are always on the move!
