Anticipation, pencil and ink, nude study by Jay Trefethen

Original drawing by Jay Trefethen

Hey everyone. I haven’t posted in a while, so I figured I’d start with a quick sketch I had done recently, just for the fun of it. I hope you like her.


Since my last post, I’ve been busy doing commissions. These are all Christmas presents, so I won’t be able to post photos till after Christmas; I try not to post photos of presents before the recipient receives them. I was a little behind for awhile because for much of October, I was still pretty upset about being rejected by the Newport Library Arts Center. So I didn’t get much done. But I’m all caught up now. For the moment anyway.

I sold Midnight Dreaming recently, and that is in the mail to Canada right now. I always get excited when one of my personal pieces sell.

What’s Happening Now

Right now I’m working on some woodburned cutting boards Chapman’s Store in Fairlee, Vermont. I’m making them from scratch out of Maple, and they are looking great so far. Photos of the finished pieces will be posted as soon as possible. Until then, thanks for checking out my art blog!

I am a self taught artist living in Bradford, Vermont. I build furniture and create woodburning art for a living, and also create oil on canvas paintings. I sell my paintings on eBay as nightairstudios. And I sell my woodburning art locally. You can see my work at the Pompanoosuc Mills showroom in East Thetford.
