An example of fine art by Jo Gaston

Jo grew up on a farm in southwest Missouri. Grandparents on both her mother's and father's side lived nearby on farms of their own. Some of her earliest memories are of vegetable and flower gardens on those farms, and of the livestock. She and her brother helped with the gardens and farm animals when they were very young. Jo creates watercolors of ranch and garden subjects she has known since childhood. The realistic details of her paintings make her subjects easily recognizable. While presenting subjects realistically, however, she uses light and color freely to intensify her impressions of the abstract forms inherent in those subjects.
