Yet To Be Named by Joan A Brown


Artist Joan A Brown Most Recent Completed Works

The above 3-pc set is my first attempt at working with acrylic Gesso and oils in combination, a technique I watched Bob Ross using. The entire canvas is painted first with a layer of black gesso then the major elements are layered in using varying values of black and white gesso. Finally once the gesso dries, I apply a less detail version of a landscape in colored oil on top of the gesso. The result of this Artist Joan A Brown Most Recent Completed Works is a bit more abstract than I am use to painting but I enjoy the concept of combining these two mediums. On my easel below, I am working on another piece this time using burnt umber gesso as the base core painting…not really sure where I am going with this one yet.

Divine by Artist Joan A Brown

“Painting connects me to a deeper level of myself, as well as to the subjects I create on canvas. From a young age I have been Painting the Canadian landscapes and it remains my favourite subject to paint. I enjoy expressing myself through recreating any subject that challenges me creatively on or off the canvas. I am very happy to share a few of my creative works with you here on the Artist Joan A Brown website. I offer EASY step-by-step painting lessons to people with special needs and-or mental health challenges. As well, I am a commissioned artist; so feel free to contact me to create your very own personal original masterpiece.”

Unnamed by Artist Joan A Brown

Reconnecting With My Work

Going through my possessions recently I came across two of what I consider my best works of art created exactly 10 years ago. Both paintings were stored in mailing tubes tucked away in black garbage bags I had not opened since relocating from Alberta several years ago.

A New and Different Mindset

“Looking at them has given me new motivation…”

I discovered an 8″  x 10″ first and then to my pleasant surprise this beautiful 14 x 18 inch oil painting painted on unstretched canvas in 2007. Looking at each piece I could not believe I painted them. I was in my element back then. Since I moved away I have not been the same in the way that I paint…something died. I can’t quite place my finger on it.

Be-that-as-it-may, they are signed with my signature so they are definitely my work. Looking at them has given me new motivation to try and regain whatever supposedly ‘died’, but with a new and different mindset.

These paintings are in need of a title and stretching. The image you see above is a poor representation of the larger painting taken with my hand-held camera. I plan to do a proper scans of both paintings and then repost them here among my other original paintings.

Let me know what you think would be a good title (name) for this piece. All suggestions are welcomed.
