Have you ever admired the paintings in the Rancho Grill and the Bar of Morgan Run Club & Resort? If you have, a wonderful opportunity is available for you to meet the artist of those paintings, Scott Jacobs. The complimentary Knowledge Seekers event will be held at Morgan Run on Wednesday, April 25, at 6 p.m.
Three years after receiving a set of paints from his wife for Christmas, Jacobs became the first officially licensed Harley-Davidson artist in 1993 and still proudly holds that privilege. Added to that list are: Chevrolet, Ford, Mattel, Marilyn Monroe Estates and Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Although Jacobs drew pen-and-ink illustrations for his school newspaper, he began his career in art not with his painting, but by buying a failing gallery at 19 with money he saved from working odd jobs. At 21, Jacobs had the cash and customer base to open Reflections On Canvas Gallery in Westfield, N.J., a gallery that met with much success.
Jacobs’ images can be seen on many objects from limited editions graphics to Franklin Mint Collector Plates, coffee mugs, beach towels, clocks and many others.
Whether it’s a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, classic car, fine bottle of wine or a delicate dew covered flower, Jacobs’ attention to detail supersedes all expectation. Every detail is perfection, right down to the reflections within reflections. Admirers are often surprised to discover that the image before them is not a photograph, but a Scott Jacobs original painting.
