Still Life Demo – Progression Video

Visit the Downtown St Augustine, Plum Pop Up Studio to see the final stages of a still life painting come together.


#ArtWalk – Friday February 7th 5.30-8.30pm
Artist appearance – Potter, Worley Faver and Painter, Claire J Kendrick will be exhibiting in this two person show at the Pop Up Studio, located 212c Charlotte Street to meet visitors and talk about their work.
Plum Gallery – Group Show 10 Aviles Street.

“It is my practice to always work with reference. I like to buy fresh flowers and set up the arrangement and start with a strong composition. This is always my foundation. As I begin painting, each brush stroke has to say something. Putting down a mark and deciding to keep or remove, I try to ask myself if this mark adds something to the painting. The results are dynamic, energetic forms–they show the energy you put into the painting. The still life floral paintings have a life and vitality.”

This is a process of constant editing, painting, taking away then reapplying paint or wax, building the image slowly in layers.

“You should paint as you live life; expression should be in your work. See the things of beauty you enjoy and fill your life with that energy.”

The Art of Giving from CJK-Studio!

In the comedic song “The twelve gifts of Christmas” writer Allan Sherman playfully lists the gifts he will be exchanging. The disastrous list includes the automatic vegetable slicer that works when you see it on television, but not when you get it home, An indoor plastic birdbath, A statue of naked lady, with a clock where her stomach ought to be, And a Japanese transistor radio. This humor strikes a cord in all of us who have made hasty last minute gift decision’s.

Here is a helpful overview of paintings from CJK-Studio that will put a smile on the face of someone you love. For good reason!

Still Life Painting

“A painting is unique, special gift, a talking point and a family keepsake for years to come.” – CJK

Landscape Painting

“A painting strikes a chord, a sense of drama, the viewer makes an emotional connection with the painting which sometimes cannot be explained.” – CJK

Seascape Giclee Prints

“A painting can be of a special place or time in your life to remember always” – CJK

Prices do not include shipping. For more information contact me  – claire@cjk-studio.com

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Love Wasteland | 36 x 48 | Oil Encaustic | Claire Kendrick

Even in a wasteland a tiny seed can grow and blossom. Here a vase of abundance – placed in a void land. In the painting the green drips & runs, may be troubles or blessings depending on your viewpoint. Finding yourself in a love wasteland – means you must decide to perish, regrow or bloom.

Life advances through my attitudes and actions.” – Julia Cameron
