Winter SALE Event Happening NOW!


While I have enjoyed doing my eBay holiday "painting a day" events in the past, this year, to keep me a bit more sane as I wrap up my traveling show season and prepare for the holidays, I am running a daily SALE event in my Etsy shop. I hope I can offer a great deal for every budget this year - from Original Art to Note Cards and Magnets!

  • DAILY Winter SALE items being added to my Etsy Shop thru December 15!
  • Limited Quantities available. Check daily for new deals!
  • Not enough - Still looking for that special gift? Consider a commissioned piece of ART!

2013-2014 Commission Pricing & Policies
Standard Sizes, Original Art on Stretched Canvas

  • 8 x 10 or smaller: $150
  • 11 x 14: $190
  • 16 x 20: $400
  • 18 x 24: $540
  • 24 x 24: $720 - Winter SALE price of $300!
  • 24 x 36: $860

For all other sizes: I charge $1.25 USD per square inch ($150 minimum) for original Acrylic artwork on canvas - Although I retain the rights to all my work, I do also offer a 15% courtesy discount  for paintings within my usual genre if you don't mind me making prints from the original painting (including 15% off the standard prices above). All my canvases are custom made, stretched by me, and can be any size you wish. Before I begin a project I do require a minimum non-refundable 25% deposit. It then takes about a week to have the canvas built, another week for me to prepare the canvas, and then 3-6 weeks to complete the painting (depending on the size). I provide progression photos of the work being done (I don't supply sketches, however, as I do my sketching with paint on the canvas), and am open to any feedback along the way. I don't consider a painting finished until you are completely satisfied with the finished piece. I finish all sides of my original acrylic paintings with an isolation coat of acrylic gel and then a varnish top coat. I also use high pigment paints - all of which will give you extra UV protection for your painting. I have the painting professionally packed and shipped via UPS, and do require payment in full before shipping.

What's NEW with the Art of Jennifer Lommers


It's been an exciting year, and as we near the completion of 2013, it gets even more so!

After a fun and busy summer of painting and traveling to shows, I happily opened a NEW studio space last week in downtown Corvallis, Oregon! I had my grand opening on Friday, and was overwhelmed with the welcoming I received from friends, family, and art followers!

THANK YOU!


As chance would have it, I was walking (well, actually biking, but I got off my bike) when I ran into the owner of Corvallis' little art supply store, Mike Wiener, on his walking commute to work. I was telling him I was in the market for some new studio space, and this time I was serious (not my usual just contemplation mode). Well, a few short days later and we had struck a deal - I would occupy his former classroom space as an "Artist in Residence" in the back of his store and could finally consolidate my printshop (formerly in my garage), my painting studio (formerly split between my house and my attic studio space at The Athena House), and a small retail area which I had only been able to present at art shows previously - WOW.

While Mike and I have been working out the details of what our 2 businesses and spaces will look like going forward, I have also been thinking of how I want to present this space to my followers and customers. While I have mentioned to many people before, that I don't really want to teach, per se, I do want people to come in and become engaged in the art making process. I realized that doesn't have to take the form of a typical art class (or at least what was typical for me back in the early 90's). So, going forward, I am going to offer a couple different art experiences in my new studio space.

1)  Regular studio painting hours

I am committing to regular painting demonstration hours, where you can drop in, have a seat, and watch me paint!

STUDIO HOURS
Tuesday & Thursday 11-2pm
425 SW Madison Ave, Suite G
Corvallis, OR 97333

2) Monthly Events

Starting in January, I will be holding a "first Thursday" event in my studio in the evening of the first Thursday of every month. These events will take a different form every month, and I plan on announcing these on my blog here. I hope to use these events to teach a particular skill or feature a particular product that I use in my artwork. For anyone participating (you could also just watch), there will be a small studio fee for the supplies, but the result will be a piece of artwork (either finished or in process) that you can take home! Once we get rolling, I also hope to offer these as videos for my cyber fans as well.

MORE EXCITING NEWS

Going forward, also be on the lookout for more exciting news from the Drawing Board! Looking for a space to have an art related month-long event? This may be your chance! Stop by the store or my studio for a tour of what's NEW and make 2014 a year of inspiration!
