Joyce's resume


Highlights of 2010:

I have been involved in several exhibitions lately, besides the National Watercolor Society exhibit in October of 2009. A watercolor called “Stream Sonata” was included in the Exhibition for the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, held in Salt Lake, Utah from May through June. The “Moonlight Sonata” will travel to Golden, Colorado in September, to become part of the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition. “Basque Dancers’ Jota” (below) won 2nd place at this year’s annual exhibition of the Idaho Watercolor Society. And my solo exhibition, Water Music, was at The Initial Point Gallery in Meridian City Hall in February. It was a beautiful venue for exhibiting my work.

In addition, I taught the spring workshop for the Idaho Watercolor Society, and will follow up with a two day workshop for them in November. It was great fun to teach again, and I look forward to teaching more.

In April and May, my husband and I traveled in the mid-east: Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. It was very exciting to experience the Holy Land, and to view history in millennia instead of mere years. We found the Syrians, Lebanese, and Palestinians generous, hospitable, and unforgettable, and of course Israel was an incredible blend of timeless beauty and modern activity.

In late August and through September we will again take to the road in our RV. Research and painting on location in the west are a part of the venue.

And in October we will attend the Trailing of the Sheep Festival in Ketchum, Idaho.

And I may have a couple more painting to add later, but this is a start




ARTIST’S STATEMENT:                                                      

 I strive to paint memorable and personal creatively authentic visions, carefully designed and technically proficient in my chosen medium.  

I prefer the medium of watercolors because they allow the building of layers of rich glazed colors and textures which reflect light through to the white of the paper.  My images usually focus on human, animal, and water themes, as they are infinitely various, subtle, and challenging.
