Dear Friends,

For all of you who took the time to respond to my open letter to artists - Thank You (the letter is reprinted on my home page). I am glad the thoughts expressed touched a responsive chord.

I have just returned from teaching at the Weekend of the Masters in Carmel, CA and am completely spent: between staying up late, talking shop with new and old friends, lecturing, demo-ing and teaching I was worn to a nub.

What an amazing opportunity to see and meet so many artists who have awed me over the years.

I still can't believe that I get to do this for a living.

- Joe Paquet

New Work

Aggregate Yard in White Light 28" x 40"
Oil on Mounted Linen - $24,000

The above work was painted largely from life this summer in an area along the Mississippi, not far from my studio known as "Pig's Eye" named for a colorful 19th century Character who lived along the river.

The bleached white light and harmonious color with a shock of blue sky punctuated by small bits of red and yellow totally sent me. The challenges of dust, dirt and the rumbling of massive dump trucks passing within a few feet away was thoroughly unnerving.

It's the price we pay in trying to capture the DNA of a place.
