An example of fine art by Janet Frost

I work in both oils and watercolors in a representational style, painting still life and landscape subject matter.   My work portrays places, objects, or experiences that hold personal meaning to me, things that I treasure or memorable encounters I've had with nature.   Although I enjoy seeking out new places and subjects for my paintings, my inspiration is often found close to home.  I've been fortunate to have lived and painted in the lush scenic beauty of Humboldt County, as well as the contrasting high desert climate of central Oregon, where my husband and I have a home on the Deschutes River.
I earned a B.A., majoring in art, from the University of Redlands in Redlands, California.  While living in the San Diego area after graduation, I continued my art education by enrolling in local classes in drawing and watercolor painting, including several post-graduate classes at UC San Diego.  Eventually, I moved to Humboldt County where I was affiliated with the Redwood Art Association, the Representational Art League of Eureka, and the Fortuna Art Council.   I have been represented by the Ferndale Arts Gallery in Ferndale, California, and the Strawberry Rock Gallery in Trinidad, California.  I am currently a member of the High Desert Art League in Bend, Oregon, and an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America.
