painting 75 transparent_1000px

I have to admit that I fell out of my blog routine for a while….  I found that I was focusing so much on writing about painting and drawing that I wasn’t actually DOING it enough myself.
When I realised that I didn’t have enough new works to illustrate the blogs, I went the other way completely, and immersed myself in my last exhibition “Arbor Vitae” for months.
Then there was Christmas and New Year with my family in the UK, and then The Flu….. and just when I was thinking I really should write a blog, along comes THIS saying I have been awarded a medal for the top 75 painting blogs on the web…. it actually says ‘on the planet’ !!
Knock me down with a paintbrush!

About Jeni Caruana

Jeni was born in England and studied at Uxbridge, Hull and Harrow Art Colleges before settling in Malta in 1977. She subsequently worked as a graphic designer and followed a post-Diploma course at Malta College of Art. Jeni has held regular solo exhibitions of her works and participated in numerous joint, group and collective exhibitions in Malta and abroad, representing Malta in UK, USA, Sardinia, Rome, Tunisia, Libya and Norway. Paintings now hang in many public and private collections. --- Works cover a wide variety of subjects and media, from landscapes to Prehistoric Temples, sand to ceramics, watercolour and acrylics to wooden sculptures. They are always based on good drawing and keen observation and always started on location or from live models. Intense study of the human figure has resulted in her ability to capture fleeting glimpses of people in motion. Visually expressing the emotional effects of music on the senses, her ‘musician’ paintings are a favourite subject. --- Jeni has been teaching drawing and watercolour techniques to adults since 1995. She regularly runs courses and workshops in drawing and watercolour for adult beginners and improvers, specialised courses in life drawing, watercolour techniques, weekend workshops and painting outings and also art for self-expression, meditation and relaxation. --- For more information please contact; Studio Address: - “Dar Il-Mistrieh”, - 15, Old Church Street, - Manikata - MLH 5202
