Bryan Jernigan’s process has always been about exploration. It’s not surprising to those who know him that his breadth of experience ranges from traditional landscapes to figures and to non-representational abstraction. “I’ve always said I’m less of a painter and more of an experimenter.”
Most recently, his process cycles between small, traditional pastel landscapes and large non-representational paintings. “Once I complete a set of landscapes in pastel that take their own kind of concentration, the last thing I want to do is another one. So I cycle into large abstracts that are just as challenging, but in a different way to the landscapes. I think it keeps my work in both areas fresher.”
While Jernigan is an abstractionist at heart, most recently he has been trying to successfully bridge the gap between abstract and representational in both his landscapes as well as some figurative work. He uses acrylics in treatments of simple subjects in nature. Most recently, he has been focusing on trees and their surrounding landscapes using bold strokes and color in both painterly and palette knife techniques. While he adheres to art’s founding principles – line, shape, form, space, and value – he purposefully leaves his imagery simplistic because color is the star.
Jernigan’s work is influenced by the Fauvists and by contemporary artists including Richard Diebenkorn, Wolf Kahn, and contemporary painter William Wray.
Jernigan teaches abstract painting for the Art League of Alexandria and recently won a grant from the City of Alexandria to create 50 different pastel landscapes. His work is held in private and corporate collections in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Brazil and Japan. Jernigan, who has a Master of Arts degree, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and raised in Oklahoma before moving to metropolitan Washington, DC. more than 28 years ago.

Jernigan gladly accepts abstract painting commissions and landscape commissions in pastel. Please contact him at bkjartist@gmail.com for more information.

Now, as a more experimental painter, she enjoys seeing what happens when she makes “homemade” papers, which she uses in collage. Her goal in her artwork is to maintain the spontaneous and transparent quality, while capturing ephemeral subjects.
Elisabeth has served as President of the Arlington Artists Alliance, and has been a member of numerous other local arts organizations. She has been represented in the past by The Artists Undertaking in Occoquan, Stifel and Capra in Falls Church, and is now represented by the Gallery Underground in Arlington.

Green Moon Art is Johnny Dukovich:

I have been drawing my entire life and began painting over a decade ago. I primarily work in oils, but also enjoy painting with acrylics and drawing with charcoal. Some general themes I seem to revisit are nature, wildlife, the human form, and abstract expressionism. I have also been exploring social and political issues and am continuing to develop that area of my art.
I prefer working in bright colors. My favorite oil painting process is to use scores of layers of transparent glazes, building up color, depth, and complexity. I often work on a series, exploring a theme from various viewpoints, both literally and figuratively. Some recent themes include: liberty, rhinoceroses, and crows. My art allows me to meditate on the world and expand my interpretations of what I see and feel.
In my profession, I work in various aspects of hardware and software technology. In 2015, I started embedding sensors, microcontrollers, and LEDs into some paintings. I like the idea of a piece of art sensing that someone is looking at it, and then responding to them – usually by showing them some additional information in the piece. I have also been painting onto wood, which allows me to alter the piece with tools such as drills, files, and laser cutters.
I work in the Blue Studios Underground, which is in the Crystal City Underground and is accessible to the public. I enjoy the experience of working in plain sight. It gives me the opportunity to interact with the public, share ideas with studio mates, and try to keep my studio space in some semblance of order. Please stop by some time – I’d love to chat.

I do commissions, but require complete artistic freedom. If you’d like me to do a commission for you, I would want to talk about themes and moods, but not specific objects, colors, or other characteristics.
