Joan says: I am a classically trained artist specializing in the methods and materials of the Great Masters. Each paint color is hand-ground by mixing dry pigments with Black Oil. As I paint, I add touches of Maroger Medium, also made by me. The formula and techniques have been formulated to replicate those used by artists in 17th and 18th Century Europe. I love how these paintings seem to radiate light from the inside! I want my fruits and vegetables to vibrate with life in spite of them being "still- life!" Currently I apply this traditional medium to ever-evolving compositions when I travel to an island ten miles off the Coast of Maine every summer.

Joan uses the same methods used in 17th and 18th century Europe to create her oil paintings. Check out the product story to learn more about her technique, then let us know if the skillful "Fish Beach Skiffs" has your vote.

I like this. Love the boats, although the buildings seem out of proportion in relation - agree with others - too dark - but I still like it.

This painting is not my style, but I love that she mixes her own paints.

This is too much like the kind of art you see in every small shop in every beach town!

This is STUNNING. I grew up around rowboats, and this makes me very nostalgic. Light/shadow reminds me of Hopper paintings.
