I forgot to post this painting. This was a commission for my coworker. She wanted a wedding present for her son and soon to be wife. Paintings make a really fun unique wedding present. I was a little hesitant to paint a kissing picture, but gave in because it was my coworker's favorite picture of the couple. I loved that the photograph was taken outside and in the shade. It gave it some nice cool tones.

Friday Painting

I was so excited when they wanted to experiment with flex days at work, because that meant that I could go to the Friday painting every other week and paint from live models. There's just something special being able to paint from life. It gives me a renewed ambition to go for my goals. This is my most recent head study. It was about a 3 hour painting.

My Website-www.janstoddardart.com

I have been working on getting my website going for a long time, and it finally happened-thanks to my niece and nephew-Hannah and James. It's exciting cause now you can buy straight from my website instead of from a gallery, which makes it so I can sell them for less. I know that original artwork can be expensive, so I have prints of my artwork available as well for a reasonable price.

BFA Senior Project

I have a strong passion for all the arts; performing and visual. I especially love to dance and to paint. I wanted to show through the medium of oil paint the beauty, motion, and expression of dancing, and that each dance genre evokes a different emotion. Thus as I approached each painting I had a different intent for each piece. I had this in mind as I chose the colors costumes, composition, shapes, and position. My hope through this presentation is to convey the arts in an uplifting and inspiring way.



I did this sculpture to represent Martha Graham one of the pioneers of modern dance. If you are familiar with Martha's choreography-this pose is one of her famous moves.
