Jerry Shanafelt’s love of oil painting began in the 1960’s while working in the architectural field in New England and continued after his move to Oregon in 1973. In 1995 he was able to focus full time on his passion. Jerry is a signature member of the American Impressionists Society and member of the Oil Painters of America. His work has been accepted into numerous national and international juried shows and has won many award, including the Grumbacher Gold Medallion Award.
“Inspiration for my paintings comes from the abstract shapes and designs that color, light and shadows create in nature. I look for scenes that capture my attention, like the contrast of snow on granite peaks, the variety of colors and hues in a field of wild flowers, or the play of light on moving water.” – Jerry Shanafelt
