Progression Video – Large Scale Oil Painting by Claire J Kendrick

Visit Art on Center, Fernandina – for the unique chance to view a commissioned painting by Claire Kendrick. The magnificent 6.5ft x 12ft Marsh Painting “Joyful Heart” is one of the largest private home installations we are delighted to have the opportunity to share with you before it leaves the gallery for its new home.

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 colors and style, or most often, 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. A recent collector has commissioned a 6.5 ft x12 ft Landscape Painting by Irish Painter Claire J Kendrick she has been based State Side near St. Augustine, Florida, for the last 14 years and is known locally and internationally for her dramatic large seascape and landscape works of art, that 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.

Artist’s Notes

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

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

Brides Bouquet inspires Painting – Newlywed Gift

The Bridal Bouquet was inspiration for the wedding gift given to a wonderful couple. The painting is to be a reminder of their special day. Please view a Progression Video, of the painting “Sweet Wild Blooms”.

Artists notes-

The subject and style of the Bridal Bouquet lends itself to a timeless lasting work of art. Instead of the bouquet floating in mid – air or placed on its side, the floral arrangement is set into a glass vase. Keeping the background palette clean to compliment the subtle colors in the arrangement of wild blooms, I hope the newlyweds will enjoy this still life painting, the title was easy because the scent was so divine  –  “Sweet Wild Blooms”

Confused

Confused | Risque | Looking Up | 12×12 canvas size | Modern Villa Gallery, OR

“The dialogue is something I strive for–what is spoken and what is left unspoken–it’s the tension and energy between the painting and the private dialogue–the interpretation of the viewer(s)–their need to fill in the gaps.Body language is the unspoken dialogue.”

Claire paints landscape, still life and figurative paintings. Originally from Ireland, she worked in the fashion industry in Europe before she relocated to Florida in 2006. From a family of architects and designers, it seems that artistic expression, a love of design, and an eye for detail have enriched her life as a painter.

Artist Residency (Part 3/4) – Awarded through the Provincetown Community Compact

Artist Residency (Video 3)

C-scape Dune Dwellers

This place has a mystical baroness. One has to live in, to experience it. I am honored to join a long list of talented artistic people whose creative journeys have brought them here. I feel I have graduated into a special tribe of Dune Dwellers by staying in one of the historic Dune Shack’s.

The solitude struck me, and I worked prolifically to fill the void. My wish coming here was to have more studio time it was my intention to paint. I was compelled to use every moment painting feverishly – greedily grabbing every moment waking at 5am – the days were long. I just can’t believe how long the felt. It was as if one day became two. Amazing how much can be done without distraction or interruption!

When weary from work I walked the beach, finding humor in the items washed ashore. Washed up items formed a narrative and it was fun to observe.

Thank you C-Scape – Jay, Tom and John. We are all custodians but you have maintained a special place allowing artists an opportunity to self-care, develop, thrive and to be inspired.

Thank you.

CJK

 

 

Top Tips for Dune Shack Travelers

  • If you need a rollicking laugh out loud moment read T.S.Eliot – Hysteria (book of short poem’s 1909 – 1935 on the bookshelf)
  • Find the correct beach path to avoid finding yourself at the top of a two story dune cliff.
  • One artist in residence writes “I slept like a princess beneath the mosquito netting….” – this was NOT my first thought but I was grateful for the tip and positive sprit of this resident!
  • You build a stamina for beach walking – Dune Legs quickly develop (ignore the burning). I was thankful for the walking stick idea, for getting up a very steep dune..it really helps!!

  • Good traction on low tide – lightweight walking shoes! Spring tide high tides makes soft sand slow going.
  • Don’t give bugs or critters a chance to dine with you. I scraped every scrap of leftover food into a Ziploc bag and kept it in the freezer. Dump at the end of your stay.
  • Beach combing – I found a lucky green one dollar bill. LOL
  • I feel valued as an artist to have this opportunity. Gratitude fills your heart during this experience.
  • Seals become your lookout friends.
  • It took me a long time to unwind and I really enjoyed this place for what it is. I hope you find that space with ease.
  • Making tea/coffee becomes a ritual take time to enjoy the labor involved.
  • In Ireland there is an expression used frequently when describing a distinct personality. “They are the salt of the Earth” – I feel connected to this part of my being. I have a hankering for my homeland.
  • C-yourself @ C-scape – O.K a bit corny but observe your lesser and finer traits and acknowledge them.
  • Fear, Necessity & Creativity have a wonderful time playing together here! I mostly use fear to propel me to work! I worked a-lot.
  • Always keep one set of clean dry clothes to sleep in. –Sleep is important.
  • Time allows us to Fine Tune!!!
  • Outdoor Shower – the dune shack is on the flight path of low flying planes! LOL

  • Don’t miss the light show at Sunrise and Sunset.
  • Exercise is a good answer to restless sleep.
  • Weather on the hour – 104.7Ocean.
  • Lemons for water and cleaning the water stains off the sink.
  • Viewfinder a good tool for editing a scene it’s easy to try to put in too much.
  • Beauport Easel has been great for oversized work. Easy-L for smaller plein air work.
