      Artist Joan Roberts at SanCap Art League

      Sanibel Captiva Art League is pleased to host Cape Coral artist Joan Roberts in a program, including an oil painting demonstration, at its next meeting on Thursday, February 20, 2020. The public is invited to attend at Sanibel Community House located at 2173 Periwinkle Way, from 1pm-3pm.
      Joan’s paintings are a combination of the alla prima and impressionistic styles with brilliant and flamboyant brush strokes and color. No matter what the subject – landscapes, figures, or still life – Joan paints with broad strokes, alternating lights with darks, thick with thin, finding edges and losing edges, creating a painting collaborating between heart and mind.
      " As I continued to paint over the years, I decided it is more fun to paint loose with random broad strokes. To have a bad stroke or area is fairly common but, since I paint in oils, if there is something I don’t like about the painting, I can just scrape it off and put in something else. Keep it simple and fun.”
      On the subject of inspiration for her paintings, Joan explains, “I need to be totally enthused about the subject. This brings life and energy into the painting. Working on a painting without inspiration is like a surgeon with a corpse on the operating table.”
      Active in several local art associations, Joan is member of Cape Coral Art League, Art Center of Bonita, von Liebig Art Center, Naples, and Alliance of Ft. Myers. She participates in art fairs and art events throughout Florida. Her artwork is exhibited in business offices and prestigious homes in many states including Illinois and Florida.
      This meeting promises to be interesting, educational and an excellent networking opportunity. San Cap Art League is the islands’ local art guild. All meetings are free and open to the public. League activities include weekly plein air events, shows, newsletters, community support and so much more. For information about shows, activities, membership and more, visit sancapart.com
