“Oil and Water Don’t Mix” paintings by Joan L Brown

Art & Soul Gallery’s August featured artist, Joan L Brown, is equally at home with oil paints and watercolors.  But she prefers to keep them separate.

Joan says:

Why watercolor?  Because it is ephemeral, spontaneous, transparent, light, a butterfly you cannot catch.  Why oil?  Because it is solid, dependable, substantive, responsible, a devoted German Shepherd.  They compliment each other.  Both are necessary in life and love.

Joan L Brown’s YouTube video this month will offer a rare glimpse into her private home studio.  It will premier on July 7th in honor of First Friday!  Don’t miss it.

The gallery’s temporary hours are Friday & Saturday 11 – 3 and we remain available by appointment for private viewing.  (541) 488-9006

“Painting is a meditation, an absorbing, solitary, frustrating, and rewarding activity. I think we need music in our lives.  I think we need good books to read and good art to enjoy that remind us of the beauty that surrounds us.  I think we need them more than ever at this moment.” Joan L Brown
