Jeanne McKinney

“I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area, surrounded by mountains to explore, streams and rivers to fish, and an abundant source of inspiring landscape to paint. I hope to interpret my work, for others, that which moves me when I view the land.”Natural elements, such as the soothing sound of a waterfall, the smell of a field of freshly baled hay, or the feel of a rocky climb, trigger Jeanne McKinney’s desire to capture their spirit in a painted image. By working directly outdoors, she not only paints the landscape, but becomes a real part of the landscape thus allowing her to express a more authentic and honest interpretation. McKinney begins her artistic process by developing several studies followed by a gestural drawing in nupastel with a turpenoid wash. A variety of soft pastels are applied loosely over the under paintings working from the general to the specific. She often works with a limited palette of pastels to bring cohesiveness to a painting. Jeanne McKinney is a Penn State alumna and currently resides in the State College area. She is a member of several local and national professional artist groups and has studied painting workshops with numerous Juried Associate Members of the Pastel Society of America. McKinney has exhibited her paintings in juried national and regional exhibitions, and her work can be found locally at The State College Framing Company and Gallery, The Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center, and the Gallery Shop in Lemont, Pennsylvania.
