Landscape Paintings en plein air & Abstract Interpretations of Music

Jeannette Stutzman has been an artist and teacher throughout her adult life with a passion for art throughout her childhood. She paints in oils and pastel primarily but enjoys venturing into other mediums for exploration and to study technique and effects. Jeannette was recently awarded "Best Oil" for her painting "Trading Post" at the 35th Annual Western Spirit Show in Cheyenne, WY.

“The landscape, as far as possible from material day-to-day things, often thrills me, while providing balance and peace. I choose to paint the landscape with its variety of textures, light, color and movement, for the challenge, to learn and grow as an artist. My newest works are bold, direct and emotional and I believe they capture the power and excitement that I experience while out in nature.” -Jeannette

I design and create unique pieces using a variety of precious and semi-precious materials. My jewelry involves multiple techniques to achieve the textures, contrast, layers and aesthetic effects that I envision. Please visit my jewelry site at

While viewing the portfolio please click on the images to open a large view of the piece. Scroll down for information about the piece. While viewing the abstract portfolio pieces at full size, notice the links to the youtube videos of the songs/bands that each piece was painted to.

Jeannette often photographs the locations and scans in her value sketches to include along with the finished image. These supplemental images, when available, can be accessed once the image is viewed full size (scroll to the bottom and click on the thumbnail to open along with the large finished painting).

WORKSHOP: Capture the Feeling en Plein Air!
Friday-Sunday, June 16-18, 2017 (NEW DATE) Evergreen, CO
Join us for this 3 day plein air workshop~ Let's get outside and experience the landscape! Why is it so important to paint from life? What will you see that a photo can't show you and how to translate that onto your canvas or paper. Evergreen is a beautiful area in the foothills with lots of Open Space parks, Aspen and Evergreen trees, rivers, meadows and mountain views. Come prepared to tap into why you are drawn to painting landscapes, what inspires you and start to apply that to the scenes you choose.

IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR YOU? Have you been told to ask yourself why you chose a particular scene to paint? Do your paintings look like everyone else's? Do you want to convey a particular mood or feeling but don't know how? Do you struggle with finding the "right" composition for your paintings? I have some very specific exercises and information to help YOU make your paintings "say" what you want them to and to know what that is!!
