Rigbie Bluffs, Betterton- Jane Knighton
Rigbie Bluffs, Betterton, Oil on Linen Panel, 12 x 6 Frame Size: 17.5 x 11.5
During the Chestertown Plein Air event, I discovered this beautiful view of cliffs along the Sassafras River. This is a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. When talking to locals, I learned these cliffs were sliding into the river, ever changing over time. I enjoy discovering information about the area where I paint and I cherish painting in the moment.

Maryland oil painter, Jane Knighton, is a Baltimore native. Jane considers herself a lifelong artist beginning in preschool, surrounded by family and friends who were painters, sculptors, and designers. As a result of these influences, Jane became an art educator for the Howard County Public Schools System.
Currently, Jane Knighton devotes her artistic pursuit to painting full time in her studio and outdoors. Jane exhibits in galleries and participates in plein air events across the Delmarva area.
Artist Statement: I am a Maryland artist with an expressive approach to painting and find joy capturing the beauty of the moment both outdoors and in the studio. As I stand behind my easel responding to the unfolding view, I experience a freedom and a clearing of the mind. My goal is to capture these moments with color and mark making. I believe the power of art can transform ourselves and our world.
Adventures in this creative journey are before me in endless possibilities; presented by the artistic process, the people I encounter, and the images I paint. Vincent Van Gough once said, “I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”
