Coastal Inspiration

Hello from Florida! Get set for a great summer! I love exploring the coastline and have already had a few glorious weekends in Amelia Island visiting one of my gallery’s Art on Centre. It’s a must see if your in the area and it’s well worth a trip, also try to catch the Saturday morning farmers market every weekend located near the gallery. The Stuffed Garlic Olives are so good in salads or a cocktail if your so inclined. All farm fresh local vendors.

Recently we also explored Georgia’s stunning Jekyll Island and South Carolina’s Hilton Head. I’m so inspired by the beautiful beaches and marshlands in these places that are so close to our home in St. Augustine, Fl.

Plum Gallery in the heart of the historic art district, downtown St Augustine is always my local presence – close to home! Here I showcase new paintings. Exhibitions run for three months, so four times a year there is always new and inspirational works being showcased.

If your in south Florida this summer be sure to visit my gallery representation in Naples, Fl – Gardner Colby Galleries.

Traveling is fun, and this is my first test uploading a post from my phone on the go! I really should have mastered this before now but this is an attempt to make the blog more spontaneous.


The two paintings featured are inspired by my recent travel –

Taking Time to Relax

36×48 | oil and wax on linen | framed in a silver 2″ frame | CJK

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloud-scapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my paintings. When you’re out painting in these isolated places it feels like you have the world to yourself. The subtle shifts of light can in a moment calm or energize the environment. The paintings on exhibition are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.” – CJK

Tell me that you love me | 60×60 | Claire J. Kendrick Available through Gardner Colby Gallery

Tell me that you love me | 60×60 | Gardner Colby Gallery –  386 and 365 Broad Avenue South, Gallery Row, Naples, FL, 34102 TEL (239) 403-7787

Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.

Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas. It is a love, and a challenge.

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
