Eric Jacobsen was born and raised in New England. He recieved a BA in History from Gordon College in Wenham, MA in 1989 and studied fine art at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, CT from 1991-1995. At the Academy he recieved training in the Beaux Arts tradition of drawing and painting from life. His true inspiration is the amazing beauty that he sees in nature. Jacobsen is a "Plein Air" painter. He takes his oils wherever he goes, setting up on site, working until his painting is finished. Eric shows his work nation wide and has won several awards including the "Yankee Magazine Robb Sagendorph Memorial Award" from the Copley Society in Boston, MA and was honored as one of the "Top 16 Emerging Artists" of 2001 by Arts & Antiques Magazine. In 2004 Eric won an "Award of Merit" at the Oil Painters of America NW Regional Exhibition and in 2005 he was awarded again by the OPA the "Utrecht Award of Excellence". In 2007 he was featured in the September edition of American Art Collector and also the August edition of Southwest Art Magazine. Eric currently resides with his wife and three children in Glenwood, WA where he paints and teaches workshops. "It is most important to me that my paintings convey a certain mood", Eric says. "I want them to be felt by the viewer without his or her having to analyze or think about them. As a general rule, I try to find strong compositions in nature and then paint the scene accurately while leaving out any extraneous details which would only busy up the painting and detract from the strength of the piece as a whole. My painting process consists of finding a painting site and setting up to paint for a couple of hours, or until the light has changed. For larger paintings, I will return on consecutive days at the same time, under similar lighting conditions to finish a piece. Once back in the studio, I often change minor aspects of the painting by softening edges or changing the shape of a cloud, etc. However, I try to keep the work done in the studio to a minimum." _____________________ Awards 2007 Best Studio Work, Northwest Plein Air, Columbia Center for the Arts, Hood River, OR 2007 Second Place, Northwest Plein Air, Columbia Center for the Arts, Hood River, OR 2006 Second Place, Northwest Plein Air 2006, Columbia Center for the Arts, Hood River, OR 2005 Best Studio Work, Northwest Plein Air, Columbia Center for the Arts, Hood River, OR 2005 Artist Choice Award, Paint the Town Red, Muse Gallery, Jackson Hole, WY 2005 Utrecht Award of Excellence, OPA Fourteenth National Exhibition, Chicago, IL 2004 Award of Merit, OPA NW Regional Exhibition, Howard/Mandville, Kirkland, WA 2003 Third Place, "Progress Energy Florida Invitational", MainStreet Galleries, Perry, FL 2002 "Kahlil Gibran Award", Fall Members Exhibition, Copley Society, Boston, MA 2001 "Juror's Choice Award", 22nd Annual Artists of the Gorge Exhibition, Stevenson, WA 2001 "Honorable Mention", Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, Lake Oswego, OR 1999 "Purchase Award",20th Annual Artists of the Gorge Exhibition, Stevenson, WA 1999 "Copley Artist", Copley Society, Boston, MA 1998 "Jurors Choice", 19th Annual Artists of the Gorge Exhibition, Stevenson, WA 1996 "Yankee Magazine Robb Sagendorph Memorial Award", Copley Society,Boston, MA 1995 "John Stobart Landscape Fellowship", Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, Old Lyme, CT 1995 "First Prize", Human Element Juried Show, Essex, CT 1995 "Robert Brooks Memorial Student Scholarship Award", Copley Society, Boston, MA ____________________ Private Collections Miranda Collection, OR Heathman Hotel, Portland, OR Nannie Warren, Prindle, WA William G.
