One of our favorite people, Jenna Alexander is having an art show Thursday, October 26 in St. Augustine and in anticipation we asked her a few questions:
We saw on Instagram the oyster that was the inspiration for these paintings, did you find them in St. Augustine?
There is a lot of conversation about working mothers and finding the balance. Can you tell us when you found time to paint with two littles and what it meant to you?
Are there any days you were stuck? If yes, how did you get your mojo back?
Was painting oysters harder or easier than some of your other works? The series of kids in Africa? The Naptime series? Etc?
In your Naptime series the process of tea-dying paper might not be obvious to the casual viewer but clearly adds texture and depth to the series. Are there any unique touches we should pay attention to for the Salt Run?
How many original paintings are there in the series? If I can’t get the painted versions what are my choices?
