“Honeybees and Flowers” by JoAnn Pari-Mueller
Fine details catch my eye. I am interested in the relationship between objects – the “collector mentality.” I like the starkness of a subject against a white background, but may also intersperse geometric lines or shapes with the mostly curvilinear subjects. Often I use richly colored or detailed borders or backgrounds – influences of the many patterns and colors in my collections.” JP-M
I won “Best of Show” in the 2022 Rose Festival Art Show at OSA (Oregon Society of Artists)? That was exciting. See my piece and read what the judge said. JP-M
Juror’s note: I thought that this was a most complete and sensational piece. The combination of the story, the beautiful calligraphy of the writing, and, at its heart, an exquisitely-realized rose makes this work a genuinely excellent selection. It drew me in at first glance, and the more time I spent with it, the more I appreciated it.
After 15 years as an art museum tour guide, I began immersing myself in art classes at area art schools and colleges. I am an active member of the Oregon Society of Artists, the Watercolor Society of Oregon, and the Portland Society for Calligraphy and have participated in numerous exhibits throughout the state.” JP-M
