I have a good start on the next piece in the series for the hospital. This piece is of another Fl. animal, always popular with tourists. The Flamingo. I am still designing as I design as I work. I see that I need more differentiation in the two birds, but I'm sharing a bit of the working process by including this partially completed new piece.
Thanks for looking... Peek at my website if you haven't already.
Jo has always loved drawing, but did not work with it consistently until the early ninties.
It began then as so many things do, with a simple watercolor class one morning a week at an old
school building. It grew quickly from there to learning a real love for the medium of watercolor.
Since that first watercolor class, Jo has worked with watercolor, taken numerous workshops
internationally in France, Holland, and Bermuda, as well as all over the United States.
She has taken drawing and painting classes at Anne Arundel Community College, Maryland
Hall School of Arts, The Casements in Florida, & various other institutions.
Jo has been juried into art shows, & won awards for her art in the Annapolis/ Washington DC
area. She has studied with well known watercolor artists, Skip (William) B Lawrence,
Terry Madden, Janet Rogers, Carolyn Gawarecki, Joe Mayer, Tony Couch, & many others.
She recently concluded a project for Tampa General Hospital's new Neo Natal Unit to supply artwork for the signage in the new 82 room unit.
She is currently a member of the Art League of Daytona Beach and she continues
to paint every day, and loves it.
