"First Snowfall"
Oil - 16" x 20"

As a traditional Impressionist-style oil painter, Jensen strives to create museum-quality art. His painting technique uses a loose approach, limited palette, and objective perspective so that any two viewers are able to interpret one of his paintings differently. He believes a properly selected composition that is well-executed brings a lifetime of enjoyment to a collector.
