Tree of Life

"TREE OF LIGHT" by Jan Shepherd

From page B13 | June 14, 2013 |

Rinconart Gallery and Studio, 440 Main St. in Placerville, is delighted to present Jan Shepherd as the featured artist on Third Saturday Art Walk, June 15.

Hors d’oeuvres will be offered at 6 p.m. and Shepherd will be giving a presentation of her background, technique and style around 7 p.m.

Shepherd is a self-taught artist who has worked in everything from charcoal to pastels to acrylics and now works mostly in oil.

She did mainly portraitures until she started a business as a muralist and faux painter and then began to paint landscapes and architecture.

“I have been a practicing artist as long as I can remember. My earliest memory is at the age of 3 … drawing in my bedroom and losing myself in my fantasies,” said Shepherd. “I used that experience to help grade school children learn to draw. It was wonderful to see their confidence grow as they produced still lifes and portraits that were gallery quality.”

Shepherd is now retired from the Artistic Wall murals and faux painting business she had for 11 years and is devoting herself to developing her artistic gift.

“Traveling twice to Europe with renowned artist Charles White was a new and wonderful experience,” said Shepherd. “What a joy it was to tour the countryside of Tuscany plein aire painting. On my last trip, I set up my easel along the Seine River in Paris to paint and, to my surprise, I sold it right there. What a way to end a painting workshop. I can now say I am an international artist.”
