Jenkins: Watercolors from Maryland to Maine

November 14 - December 28, 1997


Lonnie Jenkins

Gloucester Harbor, 1995

watercolor, 21 x 29 inches


Hagerstown artist Lonnie Jenkins shows watercolors from his home state of Maryland, as
well as from his travels through the New England states. These landscapes, seascapes, harbor
views and regional scenes demonstrate his interest in marine paintings and historical structures.
After attending several workshops on the Eastern Shore and in New England, Jenkins
noted, "Although I love the rich history and architectural styles of this area, I felt I needed to
become more diversified. I joined the American Society of Marine Artists to gain further
knowledge of marine painting."
Self-taught, Jenkins' realistic approach reflects the detail and value that make his
watercolors unique. His forceful play of light and shadow bring his paintings to life.
