Renowned architect Jeffrey K. Jensen to show watercolors at Laura Moore Fine Art
His primary studio is an airplane seat during his work travels.
MCKINNEY Opening night for Jeffrey K. Jensen's Street Level is Saturday, February 9, from 7-10 p.m. at Laura Moore Fine Art Studios. Street Level boasts over 40 impressionistic realism watercolor paintings featuring street scenes from varied locations.
Also in the gallery, you can preview artisanal bowls created by area artists in cooperation with St. Peter's Episcopal Church for the Empty Bowls event on February 21 to provide Easter meals to hungry families in the McKinney community.
Jensen's travels have afforded him the opportunity to witness the many diverse cultures, people, and traditions of locations all around the world. His passion for architecture and the built environment has fueled his 30-year love affair of trying to capture the very essence and mood of some of those memories on paper. He is equally comfortable with capturing the spontaneous play of light and its effect on color and texture with his various urban landscapes. Most of his work is small, as his primary studio is often an airplane seat during his work travels. His small, sensitively rendered watercolors provide a lasting glimpse of everyday street scenes.
