About Me

Hi World!

Joe Mcinroy

I am glad to have the chance to introduce myself, call me Joe,  I have been called much worse.

 I call myself. a localist; my paintings depict scenes close to home, although I am traveling more to find painting sights.  I prefer the rustic natural scenes:  old trees, mossy rocks,  rivers snd creeks,  and occasionally cabins, fences,  and roadways.  Rarely I find people of interest, like in the "swimmers at Audra Park" painting,  usually I am. too shy to ask people to co-operate.

 I have spent most of my life with a small family, wife and two daughters, in a remote West Virginia mountain village named Helvetia, home to a number of local Swiss customs.  I still have my lovely wife, and at times the daughters.  In our senior years we have moved to a larger town,  Buckhannon, still close to Helvetia. 

I enjoy music: play guitar with fiddlers, and mandolins, and singers.  I direct an occasional choir and am active in church

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

I get inspired by a number of outdoor scenes here in the mountains, near. creeks and rivers, large rocks and old trees.  I like quiet, peaceful scenes not too large, but not too small

Techniques

Shown in the picture above is a pallet resting on my Julian easel where I squirt paint onto.  I use oil paints, professional grades.  I am fond of Daniel Smith, but also use Winsor-Newton, Gamblin, and others.. I love good brushes, now using American Journey,  an imitation of bristle.  I like to start out thin and light and finish thick and heavy especially on the lighter values.
