Congratulations to Joan Elliott on being one of four winners of a 2013 Bader Fund Award. The award given by the Franz and Virginia Bader Fund provides funds to an artist to continue their work and focus on a project. This is a very prestigious award, and well deserved. I have photographed Joan's paintings for a number of years now and have always been very impressed. I have included below three images of recent work. It is always hard for me to choose what to put on the blog, her paintings are all so wonderful.
Since it is snowing, I had to include this painting. It is not often that Joan paints a snow scene.
