I've been rather quiet here lately. If you are subscribed to my art newsletter you may have noticed that you haven't heard from me there lately either although I do hope that will change. It's not that I'm not painting or sharing my art. I'm still posting about my paintings and art adventures on Instagram and Facebook occasionally so you can find me there. But this period of massive transition that we are all facing in life has rendered me kind of quieter about my art.

I think I have shared this one with you though... it was one of my most recent commissioned pieces and I just love the light and vibrant colors that I could use to portray a scene from this sweet family's beautiful yard - A place I pass often on my daily quarantine walks and where I often see joyful play.

I'm about to start another painting of someone's home. That's just where our minds are right now right? Everyone in my family is HOME 24/7 and now we added a puppy because that's what seemed logical (!?). So like many of you, my focus has been inward on what's most pressing on the home front - keeping everyone mentally engaged and safe in a crazy-ass world. I know you relate.

As a layer of this focus inward, I've started an intensive art program with The Compass Atelier. We meet once per week, conveniently on my day off from work. It's a huge learning opportunity and the structure I need to keep my artistic growth present at a time where my caretaker responsibilities have increased more than I thought possible. We "meet" online and I'm doing my art assignments in my home studio, or the kitchen table when necessary... because... puppy.

I've also been taking weekly online classes with @alyssamonks who's work and artistic approach I greatly admire. Her lessons have complemented the atelier learnings in inspiring ways.

Oh yeah, the day job.... Those of you who know me personally may know that I work as a health communications professional serving a government client that happens to be in the center of our global and national health crisis and lead by non other than Dr. Fauci. So that's been exciting, and challenging, and we can add that to the list of things that keep me busy at home while the kids are EVERYWHERE around me. I'm not sure why it feels like I have lots of kids. I only have two... and a puppy. They are just everywhere I am :).

Glad to have been in touch. Hoping you are taking good care of yourselves.



A little fun news! One of my paintings and a brief blurb about me are published in the April 2020 "Vogue's Gallery" which went on sale in London on March 6th, 2020.

I haven't seen the glossy printed pages yet, but Vogue sent me PDFs of the feature and the cover so I'm sharing these for you here.

Vogue's Gallery (the print showcase) is, according to Vogue, "designed with the intention of promoting a range of hand-selected, premium artwork that may yet be undiscovered" by Vogue's readership and "industry insiders." They found me on Instagram. Go follow me there if you aren't already! @jennifer.beaudet

Here's the blurb:

The actual painting featured in the magazine’s April 2020 issue had been purchased by a collector at the Montgomery Art Association's Kensington Labor Day show in 2018 after being awarded the First Place prize in the landscape category. I never did meet the collector.

I enjoyed every minute creating this piece and I had a hard time letting the original painting go. I don't feel that way about all of my work. I'm happy that the image is getting out there and that people will get to see it in print and *maybe* find some inspiration.

Prints of "Montgomery County Fair" are available for purchase so please contact me if you are interested.

New Studio in A&M1 in Rockville, MD

You are invited to come see me at my NEW STUDIO at Artists & Makers (A&M) in Rockville, MD. I have some new adventures coming up in the spring (future blog post?) and need a dedicated space. I also so appreciate being involved in the vibrant artist community of A&M that has supported me thus far. So far the experience has been more than welcoming as I've moved many of my materials and art work into my new digs.

I'll be in my studio during the March First Friday. I hope you'll come and visit!
