Create a unique flower painting brimming with your favorite colors, patterns & words. Come with an open mind ready for drips and dots of color. There’s fun and freedom in the paint and canvas! Find fantastical blossoms with the use of negative space. Acrylic paint and a 16×20 stretched canvas will be provided. You may bring papers, pages, sheets of music etc to include in your painting. If you have a room décor palette in mind for your bouquet, bring a picture or fabric-swatch in order to incorporate coordinating colors. This method is wonderful for all skill levels.
About your instructor – Joyanna Margo Bernardo
Joyanna Margo is an artist from Rockport, Maine. She began painting abstract florals in 2015 while living in Florida. As a Mainer stuck indoors all summer with air conditioning and drawn blinds, she was compelled to brighten up her home with an abundance of color and found freedom in paint and canvas.
Joyanna Margo enjoys creating intuitive abstract floral paintings using acrylic and mixed media. Her paintings begin as a burst of color, words of a song, or pages from a book. From layers of abstraction, she discerns flowers and reveals them by painting in the negative space around them. She hopes these fanciful paintings will bring you joy.
Joyanna Margo holds a BA in Missions with a minor in Creative Writing and a Master Herbalist certificate. She took a few art classes in high school and college but is primarily self-taught. She is a Resident Artist at The Art Loft in Rockland. She has shown her work locally at:
Barn Door Baking Co.
State of Maine Cheese Co.
