John Jennings is an artist without art. Last weekend, he said, several hundred lithographs and slides of the environmental marine paintings and mammoth murals he has sold and donated worldwide were stolen, along with his battered 5-year-old van, from the parking lot of a San Diego hotel. And now the distraught artist, who says he has no other record of his work, is offering a reward for its return.

When designer John Jennings and his wife, landscape architect Sasha Tarnopolsky, decided to remodel their 1927 Mar Vista bungalow, they moved into their two-car garage for a year. It was supposed to be a temporary solution, but it took on a life of its own. But first they had to make the stucco-and-wood structure habitable. "The doors were so warped you had to yank to open them," Jennings says. "The building sagged so badly that when you stood on the roof the whole structure rocked."

He was the boy in the box, confined for nearly five months by the brutal headmaster of a military school in Washington state. John Jennings' only companions during those months were a mouse and his own imagination, which comforted the 8-year-old boy with visions of silent pastures and crystal raindrops splattering on a windowsill. Jennings is 43 now, and living in the hills of northern San Diego County.

He was the boy in the box, confined by the sadistic headmaster of a military school in Washington state who later was convicted of abusing the children in his care. For nearly five months when he was 8 years old, John Jennings' only companion was a mouse and his own imagination, which comforted him with visions of silent pastures and crystal raindrops splattering on a windowsill. That terrifying experience 35 years ago helped forge Jennings into the artist he is today.

** 1/2; VARIOUS ARTISTS, "Red Hot + Country" ( Mercury ) The fourth entry in the "Red Hot" series of AIDS benefit albums is a sort of square-dance mosh pit, with a colliding cast of commercial hotshots (Billy Ray Cyrus, Brooks & Dunn), all-timers (Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton), cult figures (Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Nanci Griffith) and sub-cult names (Wilco, the successor of the admired indie duo Uncle Tupelo).

A Vista artist whose van was stolen from a San Diego hotel last weekend along with hundreds of pieces of artwork learned Wednesday that the vehicle has been recovered on a street in National City--without some of the art. "It's wonderful," artist John Jennings said. "The police, they worked fast." Jennings had driven the battered 5-year-old van to a Holiday Inn on Aero Drive in Kearny Mesa to attend a meeting with two movie scriptwriters.
