Jean Blue Sea is a series of pulp paintings made from 100% cotton blue jeans that Dene pulped in a Hollander beater at her studio in the rural woods of southern Georgia. Working primarily with the muted palette from the various shades of blue jeans, she also added pigment to the blue jean cotton pulp to include vibrant color in this series of seascapes.

Dene grew up near the ocean.  She loves water and has a deep respect for the earth and its resources.  In her pulp paintings she tries to capture the divine tapestry of landscape formed by the harmony of colors, shapes and textures with the goal of instilling joy, challenging the viewer to observe his everyday world and bring a renewed respect for our planet.

All Jean Blue Sea original artworks are 22' X 18".

Limited editions signed and numbered prints of 25 are available printed with archival ink on 11" X 8 1/2" handmade white cotton paper, matted and ready for framing in a standard 18" X 14" frame.
