JoanneHastie's Shop Announcement

I paint bright, colourful cityscapes that can be summarized into simple and quick brush strokes. My artwork is inspired by my everyday adventures; wherever my real life takes me. I am drawn to busy cityscapes and landscapes when the lighting is just right.

All paintings are original, one-of-a-kind, and unique. They are painted either in Pleine Air (outside on location) or back in my studio from photographs. In my Etsy Store I sell what I call "sketches". Before I plan out a larger canvas painting I work out my ideas out on heavy weight paper with a smaller brush and acrylic paint. This lets me see if my ideas jive. Some do and some don't for me - but since art is subjective I love putting all my ideas (or sketches) on my Etsy site and seeing where it goes.

I am a Canadian Artist living in Vancouver BC. I have no formal art training so my artwork continually develops with each painting. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I do creating it. Please send me a line with any feedback or comments or suggestions. I'd love to hear from you.
