Over the past several years, I have been working on a series called "earth objects". The objects, usually pods, are collected during my walks through the woods in the early morning. The series can be found on my website: joanmariegiampa.com This magnolia pod is from a huge tree in my backyard. My first painting of the image, Ipod, 30" x 30", acrylic on canvas, was chosen for the Mid Atlantic Painting exhibition at
Mary Washington University this past January. You can read about the exhibit and see the work on the website.
