RED CLIFF, Colorado ” Joan Norris, who predominately paints en plein air, or outside, describes her painting style as “expressionist realism,” with a focus on vibrant color.

“I’m excited to show last fall’s aspen paintings,” she says.

When Norris paints, she never sits down, she says.

“You need to put your whole body into it. That arm is an extension of your soul and mind, it’s not just (for) writing home to grandma,” Norris says.
