Calvin Jones

Click Here: Return to Our Artists

Spending much of his youth hunting and fishing among the lakes and streams of Colorado, Georgia, and Virginia, Jones began painting landscapes at a very early age. Even though he now lives in an urban environment, the landscape still dominates his work.  Jones has a strong connection to the land and the beauty of nature. In the development of his work, Calvin applies modern technique to the tradition of landscape painting. Tremendous depth and contrast are created by applying thick paint and layers of glaze.  His technique creates a soft penetrating glow of light, inviting the viewer to walk into his paintings. Jones’ paintings are decompositions of traditional landscapes wherein he infuses dreamlike qualities to evoke feelings of peace and serenity.
