Blue is the color of the ocean and sky and many of nature’s creatures. It symbolizes serenity, stability, and sagacity. In my works I have explored different aspects of blue in nature with the hope that the viewer finds solace in their imagery and words.”  JoAnn Pari-Mueller

Grace note received by HUE artist, JPM.

“This year marks my tenth anniversary of creating art. My background as a Portland Art Museum docent inspired my desire to delve into what I have to say using primarily watercolors and calligraphy with some delving into pastels and painting with paper. I find myself most attracted to exploring nature – objects and living creatures of the air, land, and water. I have won several awards from the Oregon Society of Artists and the Watercolor Society of Oregon and have enjoyed opening my studio to the public during the last 5 years Washington County Open Studio Tour.”  JoAnn Pari-Mueller

“I have always lived in the countryside and always been a collector. I was raised in farmland Wisconsin and moved to farmland Oregon in my mid-twenties, continuously amassing interesting objects of nature and hand-made textiles and crafts from around the world. Mainly I use watercolors to express my interpretations of the magnificent creatures of this planet Earth, but for this show I’ve done a bird in paper collage, a honeybee using a botanic print background, and a nest with walnut ink calligraphy (in many languages) in the background.”  JPM

Grace notes about  JoAnn Pari-Mueller’s art that made news…

“Just returned from the Watercolor of Oregon show in Bend (I won an award). 

I am getting ready for the 50th anniversary show of the Portland Society of Calligraphy that opens Nov. 2 (I’m in charge of it).

I have a painting that won an “award of distinction” at the recent Watercolor Society of Oregon show. There were 286 submissions, 80 selected for the show, and 20 of those received awards.”  JPM
