Hunterdon Life


For folks not familiar with this area, Hunterdon County is the region in central New Jersey that I paint most often. The first week of each month, the Hunterdon County Democrat newspaper contains an issue of Hunterdon Life magazine, and the March issue of Hunterdon Life contains an article about me:




Sorry about the full page picture of me, and I usually don't walk around with a handful of paintbrushes - that was the photographer's idea. All kidding aside, I think the photographer, Ben Scheetz, did a really nice job and I can't thank the reporter, Lillie Dorchak, enough for writing such a great article.

You can click the above images for a larger version, or visit the Hunterdon Life website for a more readable version of the article. The images reproduced on that website are way too intense in color saturation, but the images in the magazine and the photos above are pretty close to what the paintings look like in real life.

I believe that the article about me in Garden State Town & Country Living is still out on newsstands if this one isn't enough for you.

  1. Congratulations - that looks like nice publicity!

    As for the picture with the handful of brushes - at least they didn't make you stand at your easel with a clean palette and pretend to be painting on a finished framed painting (I swear there's a photo like that in every issue of Art of the West).

  2. Thanks, Stacey! Actually, the photographer did have me pose in front of a finished painting, pretending to paint it with a clean brush and palette. But fortunately they did not use that photo!

  3. Wonderful Joe. I think most people realize that these are posed photo's ... So nice to see you getting the publicity you deserve.
