    Hello Joelle. I didn’t know that you blogged your paintings. Great stuff. By the way, I really love the “Pride” painting and it is still sitting proudly on the “Original Art” wall of my condo. Next time you are planning to come to Ottawa let me know and hopefully you can pop by for tea, coffee, whatever you drink. Take care & have a happy New Year. And stay tuned for another email from me. I’m seriously thinking of buying another one of your paintings. All the best … Catherine

      Hi Jay-Dee, so wonderful to hear from you, was enjoying your NY photo just this morning. When I get to Ottawa, and that might be in the cards for 2014 ( think Venus Envy showing possibility ), I’ll certainly make time for us to do coffee. 🙂

      You are one very encouraging collector of my art and of course, lets talk.

      warm hugs,

      Hi Ness, 🙂

      Thank you. On the first day of a month long exhibition, this painting was sold, it was one of two pieces I sold that day. MInd you, if ever you want something of this nature, I can be cajoled into creating a new one just for you. 😉

    Love it Joelle.
    Given your more traditional style of painting, it reminds me of 17th-18th century paintings that use the waving flag a symbol of victory… so its a fun, celebratory, current, and non-violent respresentation of victories that have and are being made in the 21st century! Beautiful way to mix symbolism, art, and activism.

      Hi Emily, 🙂

      Thank you for your uplifting comments, yes this one is more in the spirit of the Impressionist painters. Just goes to show, with technical knowledge, any style can be emulated, lol.
      I was so glad to finally create a painting that spoke to something close to me as a Lesbian woman and having been to many Pride events of the years, I knew I just had to give it a shot.
