Jensen Moreno Fostering Creativity to Excellence:

Jensen Moreno’s notion of creativity is more than originality.  It is about perfection and excellence which institutes developing improvement. It is a concept which is analogous to the implied theories of creativity. Jensen infers not only the source of origin. Her works are unrelenting production of the origin, that is, the creativity. She singles out originality and imagination as the key to creativity. Her execution is a special attribute that somehow makes the act itself enigmatic.

Creativity in arts is all about liberating the energy to the canvas. Her art is dynamic, diverse and distinct. It is imaginative, ingenious, innovative and inventive. She loves taking risks and challenging the convention. Her art lies in direct proportion to the existence of art. Her level of skill, creativity and emotion is perfection and effectiveness. That had its roots in the subconscious. And was the source of new masterful discoveries.

“SELF-PORTRAIT”  Self-Portrait of Jensen Moreno 2016, 120x170cm Oil on Canvas

Painting has always been a means of self-expression for me. Therefore, I paint because I have to and need to, not necessarily because I want to. Subconsciously or not, the figures I paint are a reflection of myself and whatever mood I am in at the time, so every painting is in essence a self-portrait.

The Masterful Process of a Portrait

  • Jensen Moreno gets thrilled to experience the moment a painting takes on a life of its own. One instant, there is a unification of colored silhouettes on the canvas. Surface and bang! With the addition of a single stroke it’s transformed into a larger than life creation of beauty.
  • She strives to merge the physical and spiritual individualities of each portrait. She creates into the most telling portrait possible. Conveying the essence of her subject is vital. All her portraits provide her the chance to create a work of art. That exhibits both beauty and timelessness.
  • She studies the portrait paintings. Always evaluating how she can best incorporate her observations into her own masterpiece. Many of her patrons tell her that through the course of having their portraits painted. They’ve developed a pristine indebtedness for art.
  • Her artwork is a product from direct observation. That also allows her the opportunity to observe. And incorporate more subtle nuances of form and color into her painting. The process of creating from life’s relationships is exhilarating.
  • To the artist, a great portrait painting is not just capturing a faithful likeness. The physical process of applying paint with only a palette knife creates a unique dynamic energy. That is impossible to replicate through any machine-driven process.
  • She gives herself unlimited chances to edit what she has observed. Whether it is from a live subject or from a photograph. She reimagines and reexamines the subject all over again. Allowing the artist to be a child all over again. While playing things down to create something wonderful. That goes far beyond the realms of imagination. She further reviews photos as a beginning reference. And decides to alter them to varying degree.
  • To meet a final masterful masterpiece portrait that best conveys her sense of completion. Where each element must be in perfect harmony with the entirety of compositions. She strives to reach the highest artistic plateaus to achieve her goal of excellence. And to help create portraits that will outshine all expectations.

“THE GIFT” Portrait of Artist Daughter, 120x170cm Oil on Canvas

To My Precious Gift,

“When the time you were born, you became my inspiration. I envision your beautiful face, the twinkle of your eyes. And the things you do that make me laugh. Our bond together from the womb and to the moment you were born is irreplaceable. That will never ever be torn away from us. I pray that God will give me strength and guidance for all the blessings he pours down from above. I am doing my best to be the best mother to you. I will always embrace you with all my motherly love. To me, you are the most precious gift. You are as exquisite as a flower and as sublime as a rose. You have been specially made by God to be my daughter. You are brighter than the sun every time you give me that smile. My only wish as a mother is that I want you to be proud of who you are and to strive for the best. Bring to bear efforts to make sure that your goals are achieved. And let God do the rest.  But remember, I will always be your mother first. But will also be your friend.  You are the most precious gift, that I’ve ever been given. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mommy

“THE LOVE”
Portrait of Anna Horters, 120x170cm Oil on Canvas

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & who LOVE YOU no matter what.

“RICH AND FAMOUS”Portrait of Huang Jiannan, 90x100cm Oil on Canvas

Behind the ART:  Huang Jiannan, 60, has garnered fame both in and outside of China. His works praised by the art community where his pieces sold at high prices.

Huang is a skilled painter who specializes on landscapes. He has a propensity for bright colors in his works. He prefers the techniques of traditional ink painting. While combining with Western-featured oil painting. That helped shaped his pieces in a style that is his own.

For Huang, success isn’t born out of pure luck.

If an artist mimics the work of great masters, his own artwork will be a repeat. The nature of art is to be original and creative. But this talent must be on hard work and persistence.

Lorna Maza Fine Art: Beautiful Island of the Philippines

Lorna Maza primarily paints from life, from photographs or memories of an experience. For her, every subject she paints raises a call to a journey that doesn’t stop in the canvas. It all begun in the “Beautiful Islands of the Philippines.”

#LornaMaza #FineArt Beautiful Islad of the #Philippines www.jennysserendipity.com #Art #ArtPh #FilipinaArtist #Acrylic #AcryliconCanvas

Being based in Houston, Texas, Lorna still manages to convey her love of the country in her artworks. The rich cultural aspects of the rural life and a country blessed with a rich environment— lush forests, tropical islands, white sand beaches, lakes, rivers, mountains— and friendly, artistic and hardworking people who are always happy to welcome visitors and friends where she once lived resonate in all her compositions.

Lorna is drawn to memories of her home country where she paints to find and depict deeper meaning in all her subjects.  Her inspiration stems from how beautiful our country is echoing to reflect the grandeur and magnificence of an island by painting the simple way of what was her beloved life as shown in the warm green tones of her masterpieces.

Lorna had been a very active student, during her school days. She liked art contests, even winning places in some of them. Lorna has always been an art aficionado who loves to collect seemingly worthless items and upcycling them into unique works of art. She had collected fruit and vegetable seeds and dries them to be displayed into long empty bottles.

She has decorated their town home with her ingenuity with unimaginable and unique art works made from materials such as chocolate wrappers, used stamps, stones, strings, broken beads, and even crab shells.

Lorna Maza graduated from Saint Louis University in the Philippines with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in Banking and Finance. Lorna and her husband, Cyril, largely self-taught artists had never attended any painting classes, other than their art classes in elementary and high school. They both are designers and partners at CSM and LLDM Emporium.
