Jonn’s soulful paintings focus on two vastly different scapes – the prairies and the sea – but they are inherently joined by his inner connection to the unadulterated freedom of open spaces. Jonn’s prairie works delve deep into his own roots and philosophies, reflecting lives, perspectives and memories. Jonn’s passion for space and light, so evident in his prairie images, extend to his ocean paintings. In those, the power of nature is captured with flourishes of drama; often waves engaged in a dangerous dance, spray sparkling in the sunlight. It is that kind of raw expression that creates the sense of awe that has come to define Jonn Einerssen’s paintings.
