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.
10 Years Artist Joan A Brown Beginnings and Endings
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.
Artist Joan A Brown – My New and Improved website: Welcome to my new and much improved, and might I add, more modern update to the Joan A Brown Art website.
After several years of using the same template for the Joan A Brown website, I decided to go big or go home in terms of changing the look of my website completely.
I hope you like the new look! Would love to get your feedback on what you think!
I take none of it for granted…
Over the decades, I have created many works of art in various mediums, i.e. writings, paintings, crafts, design, etc. Not for profit, but for the sheer love of my craft and the ability I have to do what I do. I enjoy creating new things with the use of my eyes and hands. Eye Am eternally grateful for all the talents Eye have been blessed with. I take none of it for granted…When I am creating, Eye Am truly not only in my divine bliss…I would not change that for anything.
