Hello
Another mug shot of the artist, Don Jalbert
Thank you for visiting my website.  Here you will find a wide array of paintings.  Wildlife, landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes are all part of what I paint.  I also paint portraits and still life.

My style reflects many different influences including Van Ruisdael, Monet, Frank Benson, Edward Hopper and especially my mentor John C. Terelak.  I love art and love to paint the effects of sunlight on the landscape. 

As an artist I like my paintings to look like paintings.  I do not try to copy what I see exactly.  What good is that?  I add and delete elements and colors to tell a story and reveal my impression of the subject.  Too many painters copy what they see in paint and unfortunately this works for the increasingly uneducated art clientele.  It would be easier just to show the viewer a photograph than waste all the time and energy painting it.   My paintings are my vision, my story.  You may not always see it or feel it or appreciate it but its there.  Again, thanks for visiting, and may GOD richly bless you.

Carol Marine

Romona Youngquist

I first met John in 1979.  He was the first artist I ever met who was making a living as an artist.  An excellent teacher he was and still is the main influence of my artistic career.  Visit his site to see his amazing work.
Carol Marine wrote a book about daily painting and I read it takes up much of my daily reading.  The book is filled with tons of practical information beneficial to an artist's career and is the inspiration for my daily routine.   Small painting reign!.
I found Romona's work on Pinterest and discovered similarities between her work and mine mostly in the subject matter she sellects to paint.  Her work is amazing.   

Hobby Lobby

Dick Blick

Hobby Lobby is a new store for me bu it has everything you need all under one roof and good prices.  It is a Christian company anmd is not open on Sundays.  You can count on their integrity.
Dick Blick is my primary source for much
of the supplies I use every day.  Quality products, fast service and fast delivery are the standard for this art outlet.
Utrecht Art was my first major art outlet and since it has merged with Dick Blick you can get the best of both worlds.
