Joseph painting and drawing at the Columbus College of Art and Design, the Columbus Cultural Art Center, the McConnell Art Center and workshops nationally and internationally. Including workshops for the Glen Arbor Art Center in summer of 2019.

Joseph said of his work:

I will be exhibiting landscape and interior paintings. The oil paintings are done in studio and some in plein air. The paintings are all local landscape subjects.

This work is part of an ongoing series of paintings from up-north. I will continue some of my up-north motifs including paintings of Art’s, beaches, barns, and Glen Arbor. There are a few themes that I am focused on. Primarily local landscapes. I am also experimenting with vignette themes, a vignette is not really a theme but sort of fits here.

I want my process to be quick and spontaneous but there is planning and thoughtfulness too. Paint/act quickly. Reflect/look carefully. Repeat. The process is left visible in the final product. Steps: 1. Stain canvas with color 2. Wipe away light areas with rag 3. Draw 4. Block-in large shapes and values 5. Finishing touches.
