New Work

Evening Light, Hemet       18 x 24"   $9,000
It was a pleasure to get out of the Minnesota winter to teach and paint.

A successful and enjoyable workshop was followed by eight days painting with my good friend John Cosby both on Catalina as well as the mainland. The following paintings were created with a great deal of laughing and intense work. A special thanks to John for the daily driving on brutally winding roads.
Since I will be taking a year off from the Catalina Island Conservancy show, all paintings are immediately available for purchase.

In a recent discussion with a collector I realized I'd done a lousy job of making clear my creative process and its relation to collecting work. The two are in fact connected.

This new page is for collectors to better understand what goes into my work and some thoughts about choosing to collect. Click here to visit the new Collector's Page on my site.


Mount Kisco, NY 7-Day Workshop
The Big Idea:
Creating a Large Studio Painting

Monday, March 14th - Sunday, March 20th, 2016 
Joe Paquet_s Studio

All individuality and personality in a work of art comes from Subjective Choice Making -- not merely copying what is before us.

You will have seven days to work out those choices while creating a large painting in the studio -- unhurried and thoughtful.
We will be utilizing reference material (Field sketches, Drawings and/or Photos) and will deal with Composition, Distillation & Integration of Forms and Clarifying your personal vision.

You can expect frequent lectures, demos when necessary and a great deal of personal attention.
This is your chance to dig deep and expand your possibilities.

Enrollment is limited so don't wait to secure a spot.
