Jean Schwalbe, born in Portland, Oregon, paints acrylic canvases using vibrant, bright purples, reds, yellows, oranges, and blues with strong and bold brush strokes.  She lives in the country next to a creek in Hubbard, Oregon with her husband.  Together they travel and explore the back roads and highways searching for unique views for Jean to paint.  Jean's impressionistic paintings become almost a surprise to the viewer as the colors are not what one would expect to find in a landscape.  Originally a watercolorist, she has been painting acrylic paintings for the past 30 years.
