Customers Favorite Things!

Customer's Favorite Things!
What fun it was this morning to review my clients purchases!
The past month I have been moving into my new home 
and didn't get a chance to look!
Wow! All I can say is Thank-you!
I will be posting several Blogs this week!
The "Winter Wonderland" Pillow was ordered by a client in up state NY!
It looks like clients are starting to buy for the 2017 Christmas Season!
The cup below called "Lillian's Blue Snowflakes" was sold to a 
Tea Shop in Boise, Idaho!
I just love how my" Grandmother Lillian's Snowflakes" became china, tiles, and fabric!

The "Jennifer Lake 2017 Christmas Shop" started selling
 Christmas clothing!
"Dreaming of Snowflakes" long sleeve shirt was sold to a client in Seattle.
The image is also on the back!
Last month a "TON" of Christmas Cards were sold!
I love these because you can personalize them the way you want!

to be used for "Hostess Gifts"!
"Lillian's Blue Snowflakes Fabric" was also purchased by the same client above.
She is creating a table runner and matching napkins for their ski cabin!

The "Blue Lily Dancers Fabric" was purchased by a client in Bend, Oregon.
She is creating a "Fairy Wood Forest" theme room for her granddaughter!
All of the "Fairy Lily" fabric collection is located in the
 "Jennifer Lake ON LINE Fabric Store!
Over 450 FABRICS!
All of these fabrics were created from a rare flower located in the Blue Mountains called:
Sego Lilly Sole Foot!
The centers remind me of forest fairies!

Natures Pumpkin Orange!

Wow! Nature's Pumpkins!
A few weeks ago I went hiking with a friend 
that wanted to share with me what he found!
Instantly it reminded me of fall!
What an amazing color of fungus!
 The fungus is called Laetiporus Sulphureus!
Say that three times!
Commonly known as Sulpher shelf or chicken-of-the woods.
The species of fungus bracket fungus is found in
 Europe and North America. 
It is a saproophyte and is a weak parasite that creates a brown cubical rot in the heartwood 
of the trees on which it grows!

I found the variety of orange colors amazing and
 the way they were strategically stacked together.
Supposedly these fungi are edible during its young stage. 
Because of the taste, the mushroom has been called chicken polypore or chicken-of-woods.
Some people think it tastes like crab or lobster.
 I am not going to eat it!
 Rumor has it some people have gastrointestinal upset afterwards.
I am just going to enjoy the amazing sculpture and all its "Fall Orange"!
How about YOU?
Have a Wonderful Evening Everyone!
Take time to Enjoy the Fall Season!
Your Artist Friend Along the Creek!
Jennifer & Max
PS: We need to still come up with a NAME for this Wonderful Place!

Customer's Favorite Things!!

Customer's Favorite Things!
Wow! What a past few weeks in my ON LINE Stores!
I have been so busy in the Art Studio & hiking I have not posted lately!
So here we GO.....
The "Blue Geode" pillow was sold through the
 Jennifer Lake Fine Art America Store!
A San Diego interior design company reordered another dozen!
I love the colors and modern feel!
I learned many new art techniques creating the "Blue Geode"!
The "Tides" tote bags were  sold to a beach store in Newport, Oregon.
The bag is so new I cannot wait to hear the responses from their tourists!


Tiles...Tiles and MORE Tiles!
Everyone seems to be enjoying all the NEW Tiles located in the
 Jennifer Lake Gift Shop Store!
Over 50 tiles have been created. You can use these in a variety of ways.
Clients have used these in installations in kitchen's, bathrooms, entry wall areas.
Please contact me for quantity discounts!
The one below is titled: "Lazuli Iris".
My client just moved into a "Tiny House"! 
She is using this as her backsplash in her cottage themed bathroom.

The same client used the tile "Iris Fields" in another location of the same space.
Cannot wait to see the end results!


Several of you have the up and coming holiday season on your minds!
The "Christmas Forest Visitor" print sold several times in the past few weeks!
What a fun piece to decorate around.
 I personally ordered the table runner and the print for myself this year....
sold the original to fast last year!
I didn't get a chance to decorate with it! BOO!


The image is located in the Jennifer Lake Fine Art America Store
in the "Winter White Holiday's Collection".
Love the pillows.....!!

Clients must have really  redecorated this summer!
The Jennifer Lake Fine Art America Store had MANY framed pieces sell all over the country.
Here are a few....
The piece "Burgundy Wild Iris" was sold to a florist in the Seattle area!
They are using it as a back drop display piece!

Once again... Christmas is starting to be on many minds!
"Ms. Elizabeth's Peppermint World" was sold to a candy shop in Leavenworth, Washington!
They are building an entire display of peppermint candy around this piece! 
So FUN!! Even for ME!
Let me know if you see the display!


I was so excited and thrilled to sell the very first print of
  "Whose Woods these are I think I know"!
 The wonderful natural, woodsy frame Bob and Jean (longtime clients) selected works so well.
They have a home in Black Butte Resort and had been waiting a while for the print!
Thank-you....send a "Jennifer Lake Art Selfie" when you hang it!
I will be having a few contests this fall!!


"The Colors of the Plateau" was sold to a client in White Salmon, Washington!
All the image needs is a simple frame!
I cannot wait to paint more paintings like this! 
I love the drama of the sky and the colors! 
The "High Plateau" is so filled with color and flowers in May & June!
A must see for everyone!

Here is another first...the "Yellow Iris" pillow and print sold!
Abstract, colorful, and drama totally sums up this piece!
I am so thrilled that I have taken the leap and experimenting with many art forms!
I can feel myself growing through each process as an artist.
For me it is a VERY exciting time!
Thank-you ALL for supporting my Art Career!
My clients that reside in Texas..You are in my thoughts! Sending HUGE Hugs for all of YOU!

Jennifer & YES....Max!

Grandmother Lillian's Snowflakes

A Package Arrived in the Mail Today!
Several months ago a packaged arrived in the mail from my parents!
I love when packages arrive out of the blue!
I opened it up ....and memories of my Grandmother Lillian flowed out of the box.
Sitting inside were 100's of her hand crocheted snowflakes.
I remember as a child her attempting to teach me to crochet... 
but to no avail!
I just simply didn't get it!
 Arranged neatly inside the box were also her hand crocheted tablecloths!


All these wonderful snowflakes...what should I do with them? 
I thought for several weeks and decided to lay them all out on the floor and just see what happens!
Much to my amazement.....when I was finished an amazing pattern formed.
It was as if Grandma Lillian had planned this all along.

                             I photographed them over the next few days.
 Each time moving and shifting them into a new design.
I then printed the results and added layers of brush strokes and color.
The results amazed me!
Depth, color, design, geometry, intriguing shapes...  I never dreamed of!
I took the images and created a line of fabrics, cups, china, note cards etc.

The fabrics are all located in my on line Jennifer Lake Fabric Store located on my blog.
The rest of the products are located in the Jennifer Lake Christmas Store also located on my blog.

I think my Grandmother Lillian would be very proud.
I never mastered crochet but I kept her memory alive by combining her talents and mine.
What a fun art experience and one I will treasure forever.
I hope you all will enjoy working with these fabrics and designs!
Please keep sharing those photos with me!
I just love what you all create!
Have a Wonderful Evening!
Maybe a box will arrive on your doorstep unexpected!
Your Artist Friend in the Wilderness,

Just another Day in Paradise!

What another FANTASTIC Weekend!
The past weekend was filled with fun and new adventures!
The Eclipse provided such a wonderful finale!  
I finally peaked the top of the Elk Horn Range!
For the past two and half years the Elk Horn Range has been my back drop to the cabin!
I have climbed many mountain peaks here and this was a goal!
The trip up on four wheeler's was amazing!
Yes, I will admit I closed my eyes a few times!
The photo below is of me at the top!
WOW am I GRAY!

The "Elk Horn Mountains" are part of the Blue Mountains, located in eastern Oregon.
The highest point in the range is Rock Creek Butte.... elevation 9106 feet.
The photo below is taken of the north side rim!
In the distance you can see north and all the ranch land.
 Zoom in and you can see hundreds of giant wind turbines....you may see a mountain goat or two!
I spotted white mountain goats (10), one black bear, several BIG deer, and a few elk.
Hunting Paradise!
 The hunters that receive tags here are very lucky...but can you imagine the work to get the animal out?
Yes! Mule trains!
Fall has already arrived on the peaks of the Elk Horn. 
The air is cool and crisp and the colors are already changing! 
All these photos were taken at 5:00 pm.
I called my parents from the top and wished them a
 Happy 65th Anniversary!
My Mother did not want to know about the four wheeler roads.
So I posted NO photos for her sake!

Mount Ruth (seen below) is one of the most remote mountains in the
 Elk Horn.
It forms a pyramid on the main dividing ridge of the range.
The elevation is 8600 feet.
 Mount Ruth has provided an exciting view for the past few years.
In the winter snowmobiles (PROS) snowmobile on the dangerous cliffs here.
It is amazing to watch their lights at night going up and down the dangerous slopes!
NOT ME!

There is truly "Nature Drama" around every corner!
The weathered log looks more like a weathered dried stream.
The twisting of the bark from the snow, wind and rain create a fascinating sculpture.
In the distance you can see Mount Ireland which I peaked last month.
What a trip that was.
A friend of mine told me they were delivering food to "Andy" the Fire Look Out Guide last week.
So I baked him some of my home made bread!
He was so thrilled that they brought back from him "Danish Cheese" as a Thank-you!
So sweet!
Can you imagine living all alone up there?
Here I thought I was alone!!!! LOL

All the plants have gone to seed and you can see where the hint of yellow of the tamarack has started.
In the fall the mountains of NE Oregon are covered in yellow. 
The tamarack trees create an artistic design on the mountains.
Wild vibrant colors of yellow.
 They look like candles all over the mountains.
A few wonderful flowers were surviving.
The night frost have withered most of them.
Seep-Spring Monkeyflower still holds its beauty on a mountain stream.
Below is a Red version of the Monkeyflower.
A few streams were still flowing down the mountains and were filled with moss, lichens and frogs.
Another view of Mount Ireland.
It is now my favorite mountain here.
I hope when I am in my eighties I can still climb these beautiful mountains!
The great outdoors is a true treasure! 
 I hope my photos will encourage each of you to get out and explore.
Have a Wonderful Evening Everyone!
Your Artist Friend in the Wilds!

Flash Back Friday


Flash Back Friday!
 When I was in Junior High, I had a teacher named Mrs.Van Wheelden.
She taught a community studies class that I just loved.
 The class covered everything from how government works to participating as a board member.
I never forgot the class.
Before my art career began I became an
 Executive Director of a Chamber of Commerce,
a Downtown Mainstreet Manager and served on many boards.
I do believe she was one of several people (especially my parents) that
influenced me to participate where you live.
It doesn't mean you have to run out and join a board.....just Volunteer!
Find niches within your community that you feel your background could offer help!
Not far from where I live is the tiny town of Sumpter, Oregon.
I painted a portrait of Sumpter over the past several months
and spent time getting to know many of the wonderful people that call it "Home".
 I also discovered a few things that I could help with!
I did my research and received permission from the city to repaint some of the City of Sumpter Signs.
A little sanding and repainting ...New Signs!
The one below hung on the original post office.
 I just repainted the letters.
I am currently working on the entry signs and the Sumpter Fire Hall.
A small contribution on my part but if everyone lends a hand..
..just think how "Grand" all the communities across our nation would be!
Have a Great Evening & Weekend Everyone!
Your Artist Friend in the Wilds,
Jennifer & Max
PS: Max is trying to figure out how he can Help!
