Hummingbird-Feast-24 x 30

HUMMINGBIRD FEAST 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas, ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

Hollyhocks freely reseed in my garden and grow nearly eight feet into the sky.  What a treat to watch the hummingbirds enjoy the summer blossoms, but in Fall the grasshoppers find the petals delicious and the leaves are eaten into web-like remnants.

LILIES, BERRIES AND BUMBLEBEES 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

The lilies in my garden open just as I am picking strawberries to fill my jam jars. The bumblebees tuck into the trumpets and emerge speckled with orange pollen.

Cathedral-Spring-24x30
CATHEDRAL SPRING 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

In my distance are tall, willowy trees dancing in the breeze. In the Spring they bud and slowly turn a soft green. As I captured them in this painting, I recognized the image of cathedral windows. The chickadees flit among the branches and hop under the tulips finding seeds in last winter’s debris.

Twilight Geraniums

TWILIGHT GERANIUMS  24″ X 30″ oil on canvas ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

In the Fall I pot my neighbor’s lush geraniums and bring them into my studio, where they flower all winter inside the floor length windows.  Painting them became my light hearted winter project.

CRABAPPLE SPLENDOR 30″ x 40″ oil painting on canvas, ©2016 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

For several years I wanted to paint the budding branches of our crabapple tree with the Spring sunlight and  soft breezes.  Upon seeing Van Gogh’s “Branches with Almond Blossoms” 1890, I knew how to compose such a painting.

Corner Garden

CORNER GARDEN 12″ x 20″ oil on canvas, ©2015 Joan Justis,  All rights reserved.

The hidden porch behind this garden of daisies and poppies can be found in Sugar House.  Sugar House, because sugar beets were brought here long ago to a sugar processing plant.  This picturesque place has many unique old homes built on slopes and terraces.  The owners take pride in filling their yards with heirloom flowers.  I like to walk for blocks reveling in so much beauty.

EVE’S GARDEN 15″ x 22″ Watercolor on cold press paper, ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

I found this lush meadow behind a cabin in Montana.  There is a stream with a waterwheel in it and clumps of willows growing.  As I began to paint this wide expanse, I thought of the Biblical Eve and how hard she had to work as the gardener of the Earth.  I decided to paint her in the middle of her garden.

LADYBUG 20″ x16″ oil painting on canvas, ©2015 Joan Justis, All rights reserved.

A couple in my neighborhood have a garden that goes clear through the block.  It is overflowing with flowers, vegetables and fruit trees.  They bring in irrigation water and spend many hours weeding, pruning, harvesting and bottling their treasure.  This little girl is a friend of mine and her nickname is Ladybug.

Sleeping people floating through a night sky filled with stars and moon.

COUNTING SLEEP 11″ x 17″ Watercolor on hot press paper ©2015 Joan Justis All rights reserved.

Because this is a companion piece to THE CHILDREN’S GARDEN, I have included it in the Garden Gallery.  Some nights I cannot fall asleep.  To free my mind of restless thoughts, I envision myself floating through the constellations.  It is so clear an image, that I wanted to paint it.  This print has become a favorite for nurseries.
