The style I paint in is known as Impressionistic Realism.  It’s a versatile yet challenging mode of expression through which the poetry of a subject is preserved and paramount. To find eternal balance in the elegant dance of light and form is my highest inspiration.  Through the congruence of our visual vocabulary and shared human experience, I am able to imply detail without overstating it. Brushwork and palette knife together create a textural Impressionism and paint quality which entice a closer look, while it is through a little distance that my paintings become Realistic portals into a time and place. Painted like memories of the “here and now,” they depict the variety of life in the 21st Century and often include man-made objects, figures, or animals. Through my work, I sincerely hope to remind and inspire others to take time to see just how amazing this existence is. Enjoy.

    Aloha Josh,
    I’m Interested in your pre sketch workshop/seminar when you are on Maui. I understand the concept of Notan but am always in a rush to get painting. I seem to “feel” out the composition quickly, but don’t take enough time to do the pre sketch.
    Let me know what dates you are considering.

    I have tried many times, both in the past and just today, to sign up for your newsletter, but have been unable to. I repeatedly get “Newsletter Error”. I very much want to receive your newsletter but it seems that it doesn’t want to receive me! Can you help?
    Thanks, Marsha

    Hi Josh,
    I’ve been using one of your painting images for the workshop/seminar I give on personal style in plein air painting. Since I didn’t ask permission (that I remember, anyway), I thought I’d ask forgiveness. Please let me know if it’s ok with you.
    Carl Judson
