Saddles, bridles and horse treats are kept safe from the elements in the Tack Shed. Summer grazing pastures.are close by on the hillside beyond the trees. Sitting on the back of an easy riding hose as it navigates uneven terrain is just like sitting in a rocking chair. I did say an “easy riding" horse. Some horses are like riding a jack hammer. 24"x32" Oil on Panel/ Available Click HERE for purchase info. Visit https://jodyahrensartist.com to view more of my work.

When my husband and I bought our home this old loading dock was left on the property. For us, it’s a symbol of the days when it was still a working ranch. The hills behind it change their disposition and color throughout the day. This painting shows the land in midsummer glory. 24"x48" Acrylic on Canvas/Available Click HERE for pricing.

Double Departure by Paula Peacock Oil on Canvas 16" X 20"
In 2014 I lost my little sister to breast cancer and my son was killed 6 months later. This painting honors the people I lost. The monk figurine represents me and the two monks in the mirror represent my son and my sister. I am on this side and they have transitioned to the other side yet we will always remain connected as shown by the thin white ribbon. The white butterflies on the other side(in the mirror) are indicative of angels (for me). The nautilus indicates my mental state at the time, trapped, alone, yet protected by the outer walls I had erected while I dealt with grief.

A few years ago I was given permission to photograph the sheep handlers working the release pen at the Meeker International Sheepdog Trials. It was fascinating! I watched as the border collies and cowboys and horses wrangled the unruly Meeker sheep, gathering them, penning them, and releasing them for each sheepdog participating in the trials. Working the Release Pen won the People’s Choice award at the 2006 Meeker Classic International Art Contest.
I was taking the long way home from Collbran, across the De Beque cut off when I spotted these trees all lined up on a hill. They looked like old men just wiling away the day, with nothing better to do than make up fishing stories and gossip about nothing. 18"x22" Oil on Panel/ Available Click HERE for purchase info.

Over a period of months, I passed this scene on my way to other locations and it always caught my eye. It is so simple, serene and “Day After Day” nothing ever changed except the light and mood. I often wonder if it looked the same to early settlers of this valley … except for the fence of course.

Such a perfect day on the Grand Mesa. Grasses gently swaying in the warm summer breeze, birds singing and a family of ravens playing in the wind currents. They actually practice precision flying acrobatics. This day mom and dad were teaching an "out of sync" offspring.
'Looking for Me' by Paula Peacock 30" x 24" Oil on Canvas
" I wonder if I've been changed during the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!" (Alice in Wonderland)
After my son was murdered in 2014 I started a series of paintings and sculptures which I call 'Altered Soul'. This is one of those paintings. Major depression had set in and my world and as well as myself had changed, never to be the same again. I was missing what life used to be for me and I was searching for healing.
I heard Buddhism is not a religion but an education in searching for the 'self.' The 'self' is who I lost when I lost my son. I was, and still am, on a journey of healing. I am much wiser and understanding now and have gone through that tunnel to the light at the end.
The eucalyptus symbolizes caution and the Buddha is indicative of my search for peace and serenity.

FRESH OFF THE EASEL... This painting started with an abstract background embedded with texture and line work. As the work progressed, the hint of a subject began emerging. A few carefully planned brushstrokes defined trees, underbrush and rocks. It is a totally intuitive way to work.

The title Incidence at the Edges, reflects the design concept of not having the visual entertainment at the perimeters of the design...I often heard, "Don't have incidence at the edges". This rule has gone out of favor with many, and I am one. I often prefer having a quiet meditative space in the middle of the composition.
FRESH OFF THE EASEL As I was painting this scene, there was a constant stream of Doves coming and going in the main stand of cottonwood trees. There were so many of them that I wondered how they kept from colliding. When they take off they give off a high pitched whistle so they were very noisy ... but no collisions. 15"x19" Oil on Panel/ Available Click HERE for purchase info.

Painting is a journey of self-discovery where we lose the mask we wear every day for the protection of our ego, our heart, our soul and bare it all for all to see. It's a scary thing to show your paintings to the world. To show people who you really are, to allow yourself to be vulnerable and judged. So we either conform to what's expected of us and discard who we are,-- or love ourselves for who we are, do what we love, take a chance, step out there butt naked and moon the world.
Once upon a time, I tried to conform. I painted pretty little pictures that matched your decor and sold those pretty little pictures very well. Don't get me wrong. Artists paint gorgeous paintings that I wish I had the talent to do, but it just wasn't me or my personality. Ask anyone who knows me. I But, I was bored out of my ever-lovin' mind! It got to where I didn't look forward to going to my studio to paint what someone else expected of me. Even though I was selling and making money it made me angry I'd turned my passion into a job. I FINALLY asked myself, "What's more important, losing my soul while I made money or being me?" I gave the art world the finger (while mooning them at the same time) and chose the latter.
I may be poor in the ways of money, possessing material objects, but I am oh, so, so happy and am humbly grateful for what I have; I have my SOUL, a roof, a meal, transportation and lots of art supplies.
