Paintings

 All of our watercolor paintings are original, painted here in our studio by Joanne C. Resch. We mat and frame them ourselves.  Quality materials are used throughout the process. Each framed painting comes to you ready-to-hang. Unframed, matted paintings are designed to fit into standard size frames. We also provide custom matting and framing for any of our unframed works of art. When you buy a painting from us, it's original and unique through and through. The paintings below are a sampling of Joanne's larger portfolio of artwork. If you are looking for something specific, contact us. We are open to endless possibilities.





Notecards

Our notecards are printed from original paintings by Joanne C. Resch. These 5" x 7" , 60 lb.,cards are made from pure alpha cellulose,and are acid and lignin free. They have a subtle linen finish which gives a slight texture to the card.  Such high quality material assures not only a vibrant image, but soft textures giving the appearance of an original painting. Each card has the image printed on the front with a blank interior for your own message. The title of the work, year it was painted,and artist name is printed on the back. Each notecard is sold for $4.00, comes with an envelop and is packaged in an acetate sleeve.

With over 275 cards available, we've categorized the cards according to season as well as specific subject matter. Click on the category of your choice to view the notecards in that area.



Prints

Our prints are as close to originals as you can get. Printed on acid and lignin free 100% cotton rag stock that is 64lb. weight (250gsm) and 13.5 mil thick. We use an 8 color ink printer that injects the ink into the paper. Each giclee print has the look and feel of an original watercolor painting. It comes mounted in an acid free cream color mat that has a beveled inner edge, foam core backing and is stored in a acetate sleeve.

A Word From The Artist:  

"Your creative spirit is worth the discovery! It’s not about " the right way" or what "it should look like"….it’s about taking the time to see and experience the simple wonder that surrounds you and allowing that spirit to guide your expression….over an over and over again. Much of watercolor painting is learned by doing, trying, experimenting, and not being afraid of making "mistakes". So-called "mistakes" in watercolor only shed new light and guide you in another direction as you work, therefore nourishing the development of your own style. In watercolor painting IT’S OKAY TO LET YOURSELF GO in order to gain control as you journey with this medium. Free yourself of pre-conceived notions with regard to your level of skill/talent/knowledge and begin, either for the first time or once again…gentle yet creatively motivated instruction is here to encourage and fuel your own creative spirit!" ~ Joanne C. Resch
