Janis Commentz is a painter living in California's Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree National Park.
Her impressionist landscapes often include a lone figure, and she especially enjoys capturing the essence of someone who has caught her attention.
Color and light are an important part of her work as she strives to portray the mood of a landscape, interior or the personality of a portrait subject. Although Janis grew up near the coast, she has learned that desert beauty is an acquired taste. Today, she enjoys her studio near Joshua Tree and paints plein air in various parts of the Southwest.
