Jean Levert Hood- Great Artist and Photographer

Jean Levert Hood

Texas Hill Country Painter

I paint with bold, clean strokes, thick with rich, sometimes surprising, colors that express what I see and feel when painting. My hope is that in the end I have engaged the emotions those who view my work.

I begin long before I pick up my brushes using design and composition principles to outline the work. I then paint with abandon and joy. The resulting work shows my personal application of impressionism with a minimalist quality.

Often inspiration comes from what I see walking on my ranch on the historically rich, brushy edge of the Texas Hill Country. Here daily, I encounter constant contrasts and variety in texture and color - the dichotomy of harmony and discord; lushness and barrenness; serenity and energy.

My challenge is to show the complexity of creation by painting intimate, personal portraits of nature. Whether choosing a landscape or still life, close observation reveals the ordinary as extraordinary.

Jean Levert Hood describes best her artwork- they show her personal application of impressionism with minimalist quality. Her artworks can be considered extra ordinary for its tones, vibrant colors and creative spirit. She reaches out with her heart and soul each time she paints and it seems that she is always teeming with inspiration. Her range of subject is so diverse that it seems that she learned to commune with nature at its deepest level. Her impressionist paintings are incredible and brings to memory the masterpieces of the impressionist masters of the past like- Renoir, Monet, Cezanne and others. Truly her works are a delight to behold. I highly recommend her works of art which are still very affordable.
