About Jaeohk Cho Keenan:

I am a self-taught watercolor painter with books as my teachers. Painting has been a healer for my homesickness and a luxury of living. It all started with painting two or three days a year for more than ten years, until hobby turned professional. Even then, I had to stop painting, for a few years at a time, for various reasons; illness one of them. However, painting had resided in my heart always.

The best time for me to capture light and color in the surrounding nature is early morning and late afternoon, as with photographers. It just coincided with my daily living, going to school and coming back home. That time preference still continues. When there is not sufficient time to complete a painting, I do line drawings with lots of notations, including the direction of the light that caught my eyes and the mixing of the pigments to convey the colors I was attracted to in the first place. So, often my paintings get started outdoors in plein air, sometimes even sitting in the car, and completed in my studio.

I moved to the Belfast area three and a half years ago and I am still exploring and painting the scenery of Maine. Through my work, I always want others to feel the peacefulness, the beauty, and excitements that nature offers.
