Joyce Byrnes    

As a landscape artist, I am fascinated by the way light plays off the colors and textures in nature.  I use the pure pigments in soft pastels to convey the beauty, poetry and drama found in the natural world.


My pastel paintings are inspired by my observations of nature.  Back in the studio, my memories and reference photographs help inform my paintings, as well. 


I create art to share scenes of arresting beauty and quiet cheer. My hope is that the viewer can be transported and, like me, experience a sense of gratitude and inspiration in the beauty all around us.

I have always loved the use of bold colors in my artwork.  Using bold colors sometimes creates its own statement. 


And, when it comes to subject matter, I have to contain myself.  I get so excited about painting just about anything in my own interpretation of realism using acrylic, watercolor, or pastel to get the best results of my subject. There are so many things I would like to paint, but not enough hours in the day to do so…
