Joan says, "I love the landscape and enjoy the experience of putting my interpretation of Nature’s beauty on canvas. I work primarily in pastel and love the radiance of the pigment as well as the mark making that is possible. These five landscapes were created both en plein air and through the use of photo reference. I hope you enjoy them."
~Dogs I Have Known~
I truly love animals and nature but i have a great affinity for the dog. They are so perfectly happy with being just as they are and doing almost nothing...just being dogs. And they have an unending supply of love for us no matter how wrapped up in our lives we typically are. They are always there for us. As such I thought I would share some of my favorite dog portraits from over the years. Enjoy! (and hug your pet when you get home!)
