Joy’s most recent series of paintings are a combination of washes and deep texture. The washes are reappearing in Joy’s work after many years as a watercolorist. The texture is a part of her natural expression in the creation of each painting.
Joy has always observed landscapes and seascapes, their beauty and diversity, as she traveled throughout the United States and many European countries. Recently, she included botanical treasures as she observed her surroundings while traveling.
