Oil Painters of America – Paint in St. Augustine’s Historic Art District

Oct 18,19,20 – plein air, demonstrations, see the historic art district captured by local artists.
Painter Claire Kendrick is an exhibiting artist at Plum Pop Up Gallery will be working ‘en plein air”. This is a French term for painting outdoors. Claire has some beautiful coastal paintings exhibiting along side Master Potter Worley Faver in this two person show. Claire will be one of the artists participating in the Oil Painters of America event. Using an outdoor easel – painting a small scene each day – visit in the morning and by the afternoon a painting will have progressed – this is a great opportunity to see Claire and other artists at work, its a great introduction for children/grandchildren to learn about painting outdoors, meet artists and see first hand, their approach a limited palette…etc. Claire will choose subjects close to the gallery at 212c Charlotte Street, visit and her location will be given to those who want to see her at work.

What is Plein Air?


Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.” artistsnetwork.com

What is involved when I Commission a Painting?

When you commission a painting by artist Claire J Kendrick, the process is exhilarating! We work with the collector’s, visit the site, produce sample artwork en plein air, help them define the look and composition that works best. Superimposed renderings of artwork on photos of the wall spaces, until we reach the perfect answer for the collector, and composition for the space. 
Sometimes you love and appreciate an artist’s body of work, but want a customized artwork bespoke to your decor color and style, or have the perfect size for a specific spot in your home or corporate office. 


Claire has successfully worked with many collectors to help define and execute their unique vision in a commissioned piece. One of our collectors has commissioned a 6 ft x 12 ft Landscape Painting by Irish Artist Claire J Kendrick she has been based State Side near St. Augustine, Florida, for 14 years and is known locally and internationally for her dramatic large seascape and landscape works of art, inspired by Florida coastal life. Her paintings bring a sense of color and drama to any room. The process is thrilling! 


Art on Centre, facilitated all communications between busy collectors and the artist, resulting in a relaxed and FUN experience for all. Claire is an artist who thrives on commission work. Not all artists love the pressure but Claire in her previous career is used to the fast paced environment of the fashion design world. Claire worked in Paris, London, Brussels and has traveled extensively she takes commission work seriously and has a brilliant stylish esthetic in imagining and creating a work of art that will sing in a room. Now in her real job – being a full time painter it’s a career and a choice not for the faint hearted. 

Artists Notes on Commission Paintings!


It’s a gutsy move said the artist, for the artist and collector to commission a painting, everyone is staring at a blank wall imagining what will be! We try using all the essential tools to walk a client through the process so they are excited, with GoPro technology I can send clients time delay video so they can see the speedy version of what’s happening. Everyone loves that part! Meeting the clients, seeing the space and it’s a joy and honor to translate the collective vision onto canvas. Growing up in a family of architects and designers the job site is familiar territory – seeing through the chaos – seeing the vision – it is compelling and very satisfying. – Claire Kendrick

INSTALLATION

“High Glen Vista” | 24×48 | Oil on Canvas | Commission Painting Ireland

This unique Irish home is a modern, inviting residence located in an area of great natural beauty. A love of the outdoors and climbing was clear when talking about a commission with the collector. The home is an escape from city life to enjoy a tranquil retreat and enjoy the great outdoors in the spectacular Donegal hills and mountains. The impressive vista includes Glenveagh, Errigal, Muckish Mountain and Glen Lough. The Derryveagh Mountains begin on the lake’s western side and the Glendowan Mountains begin on the lake’s southern end. It was a pleasure to be back in Ireland painting this stunning view “en plein air”.
