Jenkins: Watercolors from Maryland to Maine
November 14 - December 28, 1997
Gloucester Harbor, 1995
watercolor, 21 x 29 inches
- Hagerstown artist Lonnie Jenkins
shows watercolors from his home state of Maryland, as
- well as from his travels through the New England states.
These landscapes, seascapes, harbor
- views and regional scenes demonstrate his interest in
marine paintings and historical structures.
- After attending several workshops on the Eastern Shore
and in New England, Jenkins
- noted, "Although I love the rich history and architectural
styles of this area, I felt I needed to
- become more diversified. I joined the American Society
of Marine Artists to gain further
- knowledge of marine painting."
- Self-taught, Jenkins' realistic approach reflects the
detail and value that make his
- watercolors unique. His forceful play of light and shadow
bring his paintings to life.
