"Perspective" at The Art League

In June my piece "The Artist's Studio V" was accepted into The Art League's juried show entitled "Perspective" at The Torpedo Factory.

I was honored to find out that my painting was awarded Honorable Mention! 

Show notes from the juror David Carter:

"Jennifer Allevato’s The Artist’s Studio, “nicely echoes Matisse’s The Red Studio and it’s flattened perspective. The viewer is looking in at the studio, and there’s a painting on the easel that artist is creating of the studio. The artist has provided us with several different perspectives.”

Unfortunately, the opening was so crowded that I didn't get any other photos of the show. My bad. 

It was a great show, though! 
Thanks to the Art League!

My Chromatic Studio

I recently completed a project on my Instagram entitled "My Chromatic Studio"

My studio is a bit of a blank box with white walls and a natural wood floor, but I always receive comments on how bright and colorful it is due to all my art and supplies.

So I decided to showcase some of my supplies, grouped by color, within one of my butcher paint trays (to help contain the size). 
I ended up with 28 unique, colorful groupings under the hashtag #mychromaticstudio

Here they are!




Peach/ Coral




Mint and Olive

Kelly Green

Dark/ Forest Green




Cobalt Blue

Navy Blue



Purple/ Violet


 Sepia/ Brown









My Chromatic Studio

I invite you to share your studio supplies with the hashtag #mychromaticstudio

100 days project update: days 81- 90

You all... I mean, when I commit to something... 

 I mean, who could resist this pink sofa?!

Yes, I started this project in May of 2016. Yes, I'm still working on it. 
And guess what... I only have 10 left! 

Without further ado, days 81-90:

Day 81

Day 82

Day 83

Day 84

 Day 84 in progress

Day 85

Day 86

Day 87

Day 88

Day 89

Day 90
 no background on this one! I felt the intense colors of the florals needed a white background so they would really pop. 

 Day 90 in progress -- set-up was a little more rustic because we were on vacation

Days 81 - 90

Added some more tablescapes to my collection. It's so fun to see the progression, especially in terms of color useage and subject.

New state prints!

I have 9 new state prints now in the shop!

I have all the colors pre-planned out for the states. This set has super-saturated hues, due to my use of both watercolor and gouache. Above is some of the states in process. They are painted in pieces and then put together with the magic of computers. 

Now available:

Like all the other states in my series, they are accompanied by my painted hand-lettering and each state's flower. 
Only 13 states left!
