Fine Art Friends (part 3 of 4)

The spotlight is on Jo Castillo today.

Jo is an amazing pastel artist who also works in oils, watercolors, and acrylics. She also does pen and ink sketches on a regular basis. I envy her dedication to do these sketches.

She does a lot of paintings of the beautiful mountains and skies of New Mexico. I am in awe of the vibrant colors she has in her palette. She definitely captures the beauty of the moment. Look at this beauty, Cholla Cactus .

Jo also does something I don’t have the nerve to do….Plein Air painting. She makes it look so easy.

She has lived in several different countries and states and has a great many paintings of her time spent in these places. You can see these on her website, Jo Castillo Art . Maybe you’ll find something to buy!

Oh, not to mention that Jo is a HUGE baseball fan! She and her husband go to as many games as they can. They also enjoy time spent on the golf course. They love to travel too. Jo shares some of their travels on her blog. Be sure to visit her often!
