Steve’s unboxing / review

Steve waited a good long time before opening the painting I sent him in exchange for his support of the Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change! Thanks for this, Steve!

$100 USD paintings currently available



Instagram & FaceBook Testimonials!

“I bought a painting! @jeansmithpainter is the artist and she has many more beautiful portraits. They’re a steal at $100! Go check them out right now and get one (or two, or three). And I must say, the painting is even more beautiful in person. I’m so pleased!”

“It arrived yesterday. I must commend you on your packing. It was so secure! And the painting is even better in person! I love love love it. The colors are juicy and she is just gorgeous.”

“Basically, I saw the art on Instagram, and was directed to her current available pieces on Facebook. Then I struggled to choose just one, emailed her about the one I wanted, sent the $$ via PayPal and voila! I am the proud owner of an amazing painting! I highly recommend it. So easy and such fantastic work.”

“Portraits of women get me every single time … and when they’re only 100 bucks they get me even more! Beautiful, insanely affordable, original paintings by @jeansmithpainter 💕 More of her work and a direct link to her shop on the site today.” – shared by the jealous curator (@thejealouscurator) on

I’ve been putting my contemporary portrait paintings for sale online for the past 21 months and I recently had my 200th sale. In the week since The Jealous Curator’s fabulous blog post I’ve sold 25 paintings including these ones.
