Jill Mason Art is a collection of photography curated from hours of kayaking, walking, fishing and traveling back roads. Together with my partner Mike Rice, we spend our lives as close to the water as we can exploring all along the coastline, lakes and rivers, always looking for the next great photo opportunity. Drawn to the color and light of the seascapes and the weathered, chipped paint and of colorful boats, skiffs and dinghies, we capture them and the moments as we see them and make them into art.
Each image is printed on archival quality canvas and rendered with subtle brushstrokes, glazed and applied to a hand built wooden base and framed with weathered repurposed wood. Our hope is that the result is a piece of art that conveys the layers of memory and meaning we all can feel when an image speaks to us.

Found at low tide this old blue dinghy anchored peacefully. Printed on canvas and applied to a hand built wooden base, distressed, painted and glazed, framed in found driftwood. Made as a diptych - each panel 28" x 16". Also available in larger scale to accommodate larger rooms.
Up before dawn, paddling on the smooth, calm harbor making new discoveries.s. Printed on canvas and applied to a hand built wooden base, distressed, painted and glazed, framed in found driftwood.
From the kayak, serene and peaceful, we found these beauties just waiting for us. We paddled around and around them, in tandem, snapping away for the best shot to capture what we felt at that moment. This one with the clouds, boats hugged up with one another, says it all.

Just by chance we found this little cove at just the right light, no parking to be found, we took turns running from the idling car to capture this brilliant little skiff.

A day of exploring and then we found this peaceful skiff on a serene salt pond.

Many of our photographs have a story that goes along with them. Some are of how we got to where the photo was taken. Some are about what the subject of the photo is. Some are about what is seen in the background. Some are about what is not visually present but rather what we felt or thought while taking the photo. This oneencompasses all of the above.
All of our work is captured in the moment to convey the feel of the peaceful mood of the light and water. Each piece is built by hand, making each one unique, purposely textured and distressed. Our intent is for you to love them as much as we do. We love custom orders so if there is a special size you need for your space, email us and we can make it happen.
