An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." -Martin Buber, German philosopher
Jon’s enthusiasm for animals and portraits began early. Raised with dogs and cats, his first effort was a sculpture of the family dog, Rex, at age 12. Illustrations and drawings followed. Loving and losing his first childhood pet Rex taught him about love.
JRGlasoe the adult brings passion to his animal portraiture, drawing upon the owner’s relationship, love and respect for their pet.
His artistic education began with is grandmother's oil paints. A master of the Norwegian style known as rosemaling (decorative painting), she provided him access to her brushes and paints. His first painting was done on recycled aluminum printer sheets from the local newspaper.
At California Lutheran University, further art education confirmed JRGlasoe’s drawing talent through instruction with noted artists John Solum and Jerry Slattum.
Under the tutelage of Frank Covino (www.frankcovino.com), JRGlasoe honed the basic fundamentals of color, perspective and painting techniques such as detailed planning, compositions, color and palette creation, the effects and results of under-paintings and framing.
JRGlasoe combines traditional painting with technology creating approachable and original impressions of pets and their love.
He has shown at the Faulkner Gallery, Montecito Bank & Trust and other locations throughout California. His animal portraiture can be found in animal lovers’ homes from San Diego to San Francisco, from Maine to Arizona.
