Joanne Fan

I am a Joanne Sharpe fan.
I have taken her on line classes since her first (I think) Letter Love.
I even got to take a couple of classes from her in person when she came to 
Whim So Doodle in St Petersburg, FL.
So when she started her on line classes in January, Draw your Awesome Year, I was all in.
Because I am working, I am not quite up with the group but I am plodding
along, doing my own thing and once again, enjoying it immensely.
My word of the year...yet again
Here's a sampling
To begin...

Joanne is such a great teacher and these classes are on your computer for forever.
Her themes are POSITIVE and just a great cure for a grey day.
Grey day???  We haven't had any of those lately, have we?
We can make our own sunny day.
Happy PPF!


  1. These look fantastic! Love it when words are incorporated into art or vice a versa. :)

  2. Love what you have made, and glad you are having fun with your wonderful classes. Valerie

  3. These look fab, great lettering and art. Happy PPF Susan, Annette x

  4. These are all wonderful I really like the way you did the trees

  5. I love the idea of making your own sunny day :) Your pages are wonderful Susan! I am taking my time with two of JoAnne's classes and am awaiting her soon to be released lettering book. I love her enthusiasm and style.

  6. I love Joanne Sharpe too and I'm taking lettering very slowly!! Good job so far!! She is so inspirational!

  7. Wonderful message about life being your masterpiece! What is better than a life well lived? Happy PPF!!!

  8. Fun technique, colour and a good lesson from the quote, too!

  9. I love Joanne's style too. You're so right - it's up to ourselves to make any grey day colorful :)
    Happy PPF!

  10. Your paintings are wonderful - lively and colorful. I took Letter Love and found Joanne to be just a lovely woman as well as a talented artist

  11. You sure coloured your world lovely.Love the way you painted the sun behind the tree and the beautiful quote.

  12. *my life is my masterpiece*... i love that.
    i am also a fan of Joanne's work - your samples here are fabulous. I can tell you had fun doing them. Isn't that the whole point? i'm not a big believer in having to suffer to make art. Sometimes, it's born out of suffering, but it can also be born out of a joyful heart. Thank you for sharing! xx


I love hearing from you! Have a wonderful day and come back soon.
