Artwork by Fr. Joe

I picked up painting again this year (I started back up in January 2019). When I say “again,” it’s a big of a misleading statement. I did a little sketching and Sumi portrait painting with Rick a few years before seminary. The last time I did oil painting was when I was something like 12 with my grandmother.

These are all the paintings I’ve made since then. I’ve given away a bunch of them already. Those people will be woefully unlucky when they realize there is no “I knew him when” for me.

As you look, they are sorted with the oldest paintings first (I want the newest ones first, but I’m running into a bug in the gallery, so, for now, you have to go to the bottom for the new stuff). The numbers are just an internal reference for me, but they also indicate the order of the paintings’ creation.
