About Robert Jenson

What About Robert? Artist? Athlete?

The Utah Jazz, Rocky Mountains, Great Salt Lake, BYU, and Family have been the influential parts of my environment for most of my life. As a young boy, sports and recreation were all I dreamed of. I played basketball, baseball, football year round from kindergarten through high school, and went on with a scholarship to play basketball at Mesa College in Grand Junction Colorado. I have Bachelor's Degrees in Recreation, and in Mathematics Education. When I am not painting I spend as much time as I can fishing, golfing, and watching my grand-children play sports. (7 Children, 20 Grandchildren)

My father was an amateur artist who attended my every sporting event to show his support. However, I had no interest in painting, only in sports. But after a few years I realized that I wanted to express the passion I had for the environment around me. I started by imitating a local famous water color artist and next door neighbor, Al Rounds. Pioneer homes, desert landscapes, mountain scenes, and portraits of family and friends were my subjects. To my complete surprise I won first place and third place in regional fair art contests.

After years of painting water colors, I became more interested in oil painting, because I could more easily fix mistakes (a metaphor for life.) Art galleries around the country became my favorite destinations. I studied with a well respected art teacher, Susan Gallacher and ventured into plein aire paintings (direct painting on site.) After reading many books on art, and doing hundreds of paintings, I started participating in arttist's workshops. My workshop instructors have been: Susan Gallacher, John Howard Sanden, Osral Allred, Ray Roberts, Ken Auster, Paul Davis, and Steve Songer. My wife and I are on the executive board of the Sandy Arts Guild. In addition to sports passion, I developed art passion.

I sold paintings to friends, family members, businesses, art festivals, and various commissioned pieces. I also donated paintings to several different charities. After a few years I recieved a request to do a painting for a friend. Her life and her family's lives revolved around baseball. She asked me to do a painting of her son in action. At that moment I realized that I could combine both passions by doing sports paintings. I continue to paint landscapes, sports paintnings, and occasional abstracts, both in my studio and plein aire.

'This website has been created to display the paintings that I have completed over the past years. Paintings are meant to be seen, and the internet has provided a way for more people to see art. Digital viewing is not comparable to seeing art in person, and seeing it in person does not compare to creating art in person. I hope that as you view this website you will want to see more art in person, collect more art, and create more art.' Robert Jenson--Artist, Athelete, Philosopher, Comedian
