Abstract Contemporary Galaxy Colorful Painting. Jennifer Morrison Godshalk Contemporary Fine Artist. Tranquility painting offered for sale.


Abstract Oil Painting
Pure Abstract Series

36x36 Inches
1 3/4 Inch deep gallery wrapped

Tranquility 1

Tranquility 2

I have started my Pure Abstract series and this beauty is the first!  

Thick oils on canvas enhanced with bright colors on a dark background accentuate this colorful abstract painting.  Somewhat representative of a galaxy or an image from the universe captured from the Hubble Telescope is what this painting resembles to me.  Pure abstract paintings are images which represent something to the viewer without any specific image to be had in the artwork.  What do you see?

This is the first of several produced, and I am excited to paint others!  Prints are available and offered together as one piece or separate as two.

An Abstract Colorful Horse Painting By Jennifer Morrison Godshalk

A Contemporary Colorful Horse Painting
 True Companions

48 x 48 Inches
Oil On Canvas

A Colorful, Contemporary Palette Knife Horse Painting

This painting is colorful and contemporary in nature.  Layers upon layers of oil paint has been applied with a palette knife to create this sculpted, detailed effect in this colorful painting.  This painting takes time to complete, as the layers of paint have to dry before applying the next layer.
I am really loving this technique, and I find it somewhat addictive.  I stumbled upon this effect when I painted the elk painting titled "A Call In The Night".    The elk painting was my first painting in which I did not complete a painting a day.  I decided that I was going to take my time to produce my work, not pressured to produce mass quantity, but rather take my time and produce rich quality.

True Companions close up2

As you can see from the photo above, there are multiple colors which blend through this painting making up the colorful composition which enrich these horses.  Details of rich depth, midtones, and light complete the muscular/skeletal structure.

I try not to get the colors too rainbow like, adding subtle lighting and dark colors break up and tone down the bright colors.   I am really happy with the outcome of this painting, and look forward to painting more!

This painting was so much fun to paint!  Very abstract with beautiful colors of Autumn adorning this Grizzly.  This painting is painted with thick oil paints.  The details were applied by adding layers upon layers of oil paints with a palette knife.  This bear is big, bold and awesome!

A Contemporary, Colorful Grizzly Bear Painting By Colorado Artist Jennifer Morrison Godshalk, Kobuk's Domain


My husband John captured this photo of Kobuk at his wildlife domain in Montana.  I was so excited to paint this image as the lighting on this grizzly is truly incredible!
Kobuk is a playful, mischievous grizzly who proceeded to play and disassemble the trees in his domain.  

Here is the painting:

Kobuk's Domain

This painting is truly amazing in person.  The paints used here are oil, and I applied the paint with a palette knife.  I will take this painting to my art reception in Telluride August 1st, and if the painting does not sell that weekend, I will be happy to bring it back home and hang it on my wall.  It is hard to part with paintings like this, as to paint an exact duplication of an original, it is nearly impossible to capture the same free spirit of the painting without forced strokes of the paint which hinder and oppress the image.
