Jo M. Orise – Portrait Update

As you may know I was commissioned to create a portrait.

The work was completed in August.

The owners are pleased by the outcome, as am I.

Here is the portrait which can be found on my website.

Jo M. Orise Art Update for June-July, 2015

Great news! One of my Belted Galloway water colors has been selected as the featured artwork for the Aldermere Art Show and Sale Poster to be distributed around the county to advertise the event. I was surprised and honored when I received the request via e-mail. The painting is titled: Friendship — The Nudge

Jo M. Orise Art Update for August 2013

After completing the July One-Man-Show, I was invited to join the August group show at the The Brown Bag Restaurant / Cafe, 606 Main Street, Rockland, ME. So come by again and take a peek, you may still have a chance to grab a painting for your home. AND, grab a sandwich or some of their great muffins, pies or bread. They have the absolute best baker and terrific chef. Tell them I said so.

I have a One-Man-Show for the month of August at The Highland Coffee House, Thomaston, ME. Sixteen works, a combination of originals and prints are on display. This is another great Coffee House—I only hang around really great places that offer ambiance and super food—for my delicate stomach and all. Wonderful coffee, pastries, sandwiches and lots of super entertainment. Shawn, the owner, offers weekly and artistic events from music to poetry, to benefit events. Come visit.

If you can’t make it, then visit my virtual gallery http://www.jomorise.com to see what I’ve been doing most of my life.
