2018 Paintout or Throw-down

This year our guest artist for the paintout is Mary Jabens.

“My passion is Plein Air painting.  Living in Southern Utah provides a lifetime of subjects that are irresistible to my desire to paint   The paintings I love the most “choose me”.   Whether it’s a color, shape value or subject – my inner muse stops me and says “paint this”.  My goal is to communicate with the viewer the joy I see around me.   Listening to each painting to understand what should or should not be included is a lifelong lesson.

 Painting also heals me, one picture at a time.  It gives an outlet to the uncertainty of the day and replaces it with a feeling of hope and goodness again. I look forward to this period of renewal every time I paint.”
