Upcoming Holiday Season Shows with Jean Colquhoun

The Art of Jean Colquhoun

After a nice summer painting on all kinds of media and all kinds of subjects, these shorter days and cooler nights mean I have a couple of upcoming shows I’ll be at and I hope I’ll see you there!

Join me from 4-6 pm, Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Dressers Unlimited in Plymouth, NH. Located right on Main Street, this is one of my favorite stores for fashion and fabulous finds!

The event is Walkabout Wednesday and the shop will have its wonderful fashions, accessories and home decor, as well as music and refreshments while you view the wonderful art work.

Then I head over to Maine, where I will be at the Primitives in Pine Christmas Open House Nov. 3-5. I can’t wait to see how my friend, Debi, transforms her shop for this event.

On Nov. 10, from 4 to 9 pm, and Nov. 11, from 9 am to 4 pm, I’m taking part in the 40th annual Folk Art & Artisans Show in Rehoboth, Mass. I’m looking forward to being featured with some of the region’s finest local and independent artisans, crafters,¬†and makers.

Keep up with my latest news on by Facebook page!




Diamond Art

Posted on


Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

That’s true for my most recent paintings.

The first one has to do with a baseball diamond, creating an old sign advertising an old ball game. I’ve been a baseball aficionado for years – Go Red Sox! – and as I write this, a vintage ball game is going to be played in town this afternoon.

The other painting is inspired by an antique cross stitch sampler that’s hung in my kitchen for many years. I’m inspired to paint within a diamond after seeing the works of an 18th century English artist, whose name escapes me.

Look for these at my next show, the Summer Solstice Craft Show July 8 & 9 at Wells Junior High School, Wells, Maine.

I hope to see you!


Next Show: Art of Great Bay 2017


Off to Sea – Original oil on canvas

This painting, oil on canvas, depicts a sailor leaving his family, the bustle of a wharf and, ultimately, heading out to sea. This is not any particular seaside location; it comes from my imagination.

I am pleased this painting was selected to be included in the 13th annual Art of Great Bay show, April 7-9 at the Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center at the Great Bay Discovery Center in Greenland, NH.

The theme this year is Art Inspired by Coastal New England, to include art celebrating the culture, architecture, agriculture and recreation of the New England coast.
