About Jesse Barnes
In 1936, Jesse Barnes was born in Jefferson City, Missouri. He has spent a lifetime perfecting his craft, always searching for the scene that will inspire his next painting. At the age of ten, Jesse sold his first original oil painting to the principal of his elementary school. Since that time, with the support of many loyal patrons, Jesse Barnes has become one of the country’s most renowned artists.
Jesse has been painting professionally for over thirty years, during which time he has painted everything from individual portraits to wildlife and landscapes. Currently, however, Jesse’s paintings center mainly around early American nostalgia themes with an emphasis on lighting effects.
