Abstracts Florals & Still Life Landscapes Exhibitions Contact Me
Joan Blackburn is a well known Pensacola artist, teacher, juror & judge whose
specialty is watermedia abstracts and transparent watercolor
still life, florals and landscapes.
She considers her florals to be portraits of flowers, and loves to capture the
exciting effects of bright sunlight casting shadows and varying
the beautiful colors on and through the petals
of flowers and glass.
She considers her forte to be in design and composition. This is very evident
in the bold shapes, strong values, vibrant colors and design formats
in her award winning non-objective paintings. She has
taken workshops from some of the most well known
artists and instructors in the country, and
is continually studying and working
to improve her art.
"I paint because I love to be creative, love glorious color and beautiful things.
I like being a part of the art community, and teaching and sharing
with students what Iíve learned through 40 years of
study and experience."
Joan (pronounced Joann) taught classes and workshops at the Pensacola Junior College
Downtown Center in their Continuing Ed Series for 14 years, but retired in
2006 to have more time to pursue her own work, teaching
workshops and serving as a juror/judge of art shows.
