The Artist Says:


Even though I paint a lot of studies on location, my landscapes are actually less about describing a specific place than they are about the feelings evoked.  In an impressionistic, tonal style I try to convey the emotional connection that I had with each scene.
Moving cross-Atlantic three times in my early years, I spent much of my life with an underlying sense of homesickness.  This yearning propelled me to try to create a sense of ‘home’ within my landscapes.
Painting outside in the enormity of nature leads to a feeling of being connected to the divine and helps keep life in perspective.
My greatest hope is that my work gives its viewers this same sense of comfort and connectedness; a gentle place to rest.”
 



Dealers Say:


" I felt Jane's work contained simple wispy and haunting qualities that are reminiscent of Richard Schmid's work. There isn't exaggeration of color or any of the overkill that is present in a lot of landscape work.  Jane"s paintings have a feeling of being present that can only be achieved by painting from life." - Julianne Miller, Owner of Stoneheart Gallery, Evergreen, Colorado
 
"Jane Hunt has recently come on board with Mary Williams Fine Arts. I am honored to represent this fresh and skilled new artist. Her beautiful paintings are soulful , while being strong and sure.   After 20 years of owning Mary Williams Fine Arts Jane is that gift we all want.........talent, moxie, and a supportive attitude toward our business relationship. A true professional on every level." - Mary Williams, owner of Mary Williams fine arts, Boulder, Colorado
 
"I have had numerous conversations about Jane's work, especially with other artists who state "She has captured the essence of the scene" despite the fact they have never been there to witness the area under discussion. This is a testament to how Jane investigates nature and the effects of sunlight on her subject and expresses it on her canvas or board." - Dawn Lilford, Lilford Gallery, York, England



Other Artists Say:


 
" The first painting I saw of Jane's was "Boulder Furrows" which I loved. It has such a fine tonal quality that captured me immediately. Now I look forward to seeing her new work. I see a rising young talent here!" - Romona Youngquist
 
"With a confident use of texture and color, Jane’s landscape paintings beautifully combine subtle simplicity with bold, rich statements."
 - Barbara Jaenicke
