“Jean’s Kitchen” by Jack Bredin. May, 2020. Ocean Grove. Photograph by Rob Bredin.


Julia Child’s kitchen is in the Smithsonian, but to Jack, friends and family of Jean, this kitchen, on Heck Avenue is a gourmet’s delight.  Jack works at home, so he didn’t need to travel far for his model.

This is more than a painting of a room.  Jean is there, and Jack has placed some clues to his existence as her best customer:  his glasses and his tush pillow.  We also see other signs of life in the Bredin house: plants, flowers and the cat.

And as a further tribute to Jean, Jack rolled back the years for his sweet partner and cook.
