Joanne, Your work just keeps getting better and better. Looking at your new work is kind of like a good stiff cocktail. It puts me in a very serene and relaxed place. GOOD JOB! The IRIS series is SO real. Very nice. Hope all is well. Keep up the good work! Fondly, Ron Case P.S. We still get a daily dose of your art in OUR house every day and it is such a pleasure.

Hi Joanne, are you back from Greece yet ? It was lovely to meet you in Antiparos on that crazy boat trip, and later at Yorgis and Shipwreck. Just looked at your site and your pictures are amazing, truly beautiful. Will look forward to spending more time to look at them. I think you should arrange an exhibition in London ! Sue x

It was my delight to meet you and your best friend JKrogh Colwell, at the farmers market in Olympia. I believe it was last week....hmmm? Your card has been looking at me from my desk ever since. Those 2 cards remind me of how two beautiful ladies spoke beauty into my life that day.I see smiles blended into words and your works of inspiration. Thank you. As for your gallery I am viewing tonight...wonderful! I feel honored to have met you both. May your work bless the lives of people who are parched for even the dew drop that awakens in our souls each morning! Should I see you again,it would be a pleasure. If not, I am encouraged to go forward into an expression that has been whispering my name for decades. May God bless you and smile upon you. Becky Hamack

I have fallen in love with your work Joann! It is truly amazing and exquisite. Thanks so much for sharing it. I am also an artist working primarily with mandalas and aspire to becoming an art therapist someday! I already teach classes and thoroughly enjoy it. Any suggestions would be warmly welcomed. God bless you Starr

We have Joanne Osband paintings (originals) or prints on practically every wall in our home. Her work is an absolute delight and puts us in a frame of mind not unlike a great piece of music or a superb glass of vintage wine. Entrance room, family room, office and eating areas are graced with this lovely and inspiring work! On another level, Joanne was kind enough to loan us a large selection of her paintings for our office space. It is rare that one of our clients does not make some sort of an "ooh and ahh" over the paintings. What a delight to be surrounded by color and images of peace and tranquility on a daily basis! Thank you, thank you!, thank you! Our lives are truly blessed!

Joanne, you are very talented. I can see your growth from the earlier to your newer paintings. I am thoroughly impressed with anyone who can work with watercolor! Your flowers are more realistic than Monet or Vangogh, but the Mandalas and collages, wow! I loved the leaves and trees too. The study of the kids at the beach is adorable. Your soft palette reminds me of the old well-done Disney backgrounds. I was really struck with Fall Leaves, I believe that's the leaves on the striking blue water foreground. Thank you so much for passing on your link to me. I would be interested in prices as well. Dawn
