About Artist Joan A Brown

I grew up loving art. Living among the beautiful landscapes of Alberta fed my passion for creating. Someone gifted me with a small box of oil paints one day, and I began to teach myself how to paint. I practiced every chance I got, perfecting my skills in the process. Painting connects me to a deeper level of myself, as well as to the subjects I create on canvas. Landscapes remains my favourite subject to paint, but I enjoy any subject that challenges me creatively. I'm very happy to share some of my creative works with you on this website. I'm also a commissioned artist; so feel free to contact me to create your very own personal original 'masterpiece'. Joan A Brown - Visual Artist

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.

Another RW Oil Painting Class Complete

Art is Therapy! RW (Recovery West) April-May Lessons

Recovery West Oil Painting For Beginners Session 2- 2017

Another RW Oil Painting Class Complete: I have had the pleasure of sharing my passion for art and teaching with my peers at Recovery West for more than three years now. Each time a session comes to its completion I feel a certain measure of healing take place and a boost overall self-confidence in my students and for me as well. The final lesson of each session is always a mix bag of emotions as the students gaze at his and-or her painting in disbelief of what they’ve created. Tears flow, cheeks rise with smiles and a stronger belief in self takes form. The entire process is visual proof we are all creative Beings.

This time around the focus was placed on clouds.

As with previous oil painting for beginners offered at RW, this session also had a subject of focus. This time around the focus was placed on clouds. Past subject included, simple techniques for painting water, evergreens, and mountains. These subject will be repeated in future lessons.

Thank you Rebecca, Joanne, and Judy and all former students who made time to help me help them. Continue painting. Let this be one in many paintings you’ll do. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need further assistance with subsequent art work. By all means, continue to heal through art.
