Windmills of My Mind Exhibition

By Joanna Gilbert, October 6, 2010

All 12 paintings for the exhibition are complete and varnished. With 2 weeks to go, invites gone out and RSVPs coming back there is not much more I can do apart from wait!

The exhibition will be held in the beautiful atrium of the Hodge Jones & Allen LLP office during the week of the 18th October – 22nd October. The opening night is open to the public so if you like art or know of any sad looking empty walls then please come and join us for a drink!

Ms Invincible

By Joanna Gilbert, August 2, 2010

August and its work work work. It has been an amazingly satisfying month (or three). I am kind of feeling invincible at the moment. I know that seems very super hero but it is true. Sometimes in life you get these moments when you are just on a buzz and everything you do is exciting so you 200% immerse yourself in it until you cant breath. But, you love it!

Know what I mean?

Hmmm, well put it this way, I love the fact that I am cramming in 50 hours work in each day. Like the wonderful Tanya Rennick from The Oyster Club said - you have 9 meetings already and its only 11am.

She has been invited to provide the art design for a CD single and the video for, ‘Hellmand’, the debut single from new album ‘Paradox’.

Original Art for Original Interiors

By Joanna Gilbert, March 2, 2010

After a really busy January, February seemed quite chilled in a ‘hands on brushes’ kinda way.

I created a concept for Duncan Bannantyne and James Caan which will be shown to them in mid march – so expect some pics of my paintings shortly.

I also attended a great Art Workshop held by an amazing artist called Pip Seymour who taught me about various techniques I can use on my paintings to add more texture and life.

No January Blues for rising artist Joanna Gilbert

January 31/1/2010

Right,

So here we are… 1 month into 2010 and I feel I should keep you all up to date with the latest very exciting news.

This month I painted another two ‘Painting Peace’ pictures – one was for Alan Rubenstein, the Managing Director of the JC (thank g-d I only found this out after as I would have been on schpilkas whilst painting it!) and another was for my dear friend Miri, who was so overcome with emotion when she saw the Original that I promised her one.
