At the Marina by Joanne Hanson – 24×18 Oil on Panel
Joanne Hanson. Wonderful! I love the subtleness of the mountains in the backdrop, the shadows of the masts of the sailboats in the rippled water, as well as the shadow of the mountain – whoa! The dark navy of the boat on the right really seems to anchor things. The boat shadows are splendid!
Read a bit about Joanne, from her website:
Even though she was from an artistic family, except for high school art classes, Joanne Hanson did not paint. Her sister, Adele Earnshaw, an artist for 30 years, finally convinced her to come and be her helper at a workshop she was teaching in Tuscon. As it was April, which can be muddy and cold in Colorado, and as it was warm in Arizona, Joanne consented. Adele didn’t get much help in that class, because as soon as Joanne picked up the paintbrush, she was hooked. Since then, she has taken classes at the Art Student’s League of Denver with Kevin Wechbach, Rob Gratiot, Ken Valastro, Kim English and Michelle Torrez. She has studied with Chris Morel in Taos, Tim Deibler in La Veta Colorado, Carol Marine in Sedona, AZ, Jill Carver, in Rico, Colorado, Larisa Aukon of Scottsdale AZ, and of course, is learning constantly from her first and best mentor, her sister Adele.
