Description After a hard day of work, a tall lanky cowboy leans against the wall of the bunkhouse to relax. In one had he holds his leather gloves, while a plume of smoke rises from the Marlboro cigarette he holds in the other hand resting on his knee. He gazes off in the distance, deep in thought, the strong silent type...The last rays of the setting sun stream across his rugged face, and his Stetson hat casts a long shadow on the wall.
Johanna Girard, Pasadena, California Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Hello and welcome to my Imagekind website! My name is Johanna Girard, and I am an artist living in Pasadena, California, home of the Tournament of Roses Parade and Art Center College of Design, where I earned my BFA degree in 1986 Illustration.
I specialize in Traditional Realism in Oils and Pastels , using a bright contemporary color palette. My favorite subjects to paint are California and Southwest Plein Air Landscapes, Florals, Still Lifes , Portraiture, Nudes, and occasionally I like to paint Classic Vintage Automobiles too!
My original art studio was located in Pasadena, on Sinaloa Avenue, hence the name of my website: www.studiosinaloa.com. In August of 2009 I opened a larger art studio at 3763 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, but I kept the name Studio Sinaloa. If you are in the Pasadena area and are looking for art classes for your kids or yourself, check out my website: www.studiosinaloa.com.
