Girl Sitting

Welcome to Paducah Purchase, the home of  Reproductions of Joan Dance Art. On today we see before us the Image "Young Lady". We see a young lady. She seems well collected. She neither smiles nor frowns. She sits on a chair, that sits on a multicolor rug, that lies on a wooden floor. Through drawn patterned curtains we see a clear day outside. The sun appears over her left shoulder. She sits and thinks. She appears to have done all that she can do and now she allows the Lord to work things out.

Animule

Welcome to Paducah Purchase the home of Reproductions of Joan Dance Art. Today we bring you the image "Animule". In the image we see a creature with it's mouth open. The Artist says that the name of the creature is an "Animule". The sun is in the right or later time of day. The Lord God cares for all of His creatures. There are two paths, the straight and narrow path, and then there is the wide path.

Choir Angel

Welcome to Paducah Purchase the home of Reproductions of Joan Dance Art.  On today we bring you the image "Choir Angel". We see in the image a Choir Angel. The background shows stained glass like that of a church. His hands are before him together and his eyes are calm and focused. He has on some sort of a mantle and his head is encircled with a halo. He is speaking. Pray for Wisdom and Discernment.

Drumming

Paducah Purchase Reproductions of Joan Dance Art, brings you the image "Drumming". In the image we see a woman appearing to be playing upon a tambourine or a drum. In the background we see what appears to be stained glass. She seems to be sitting in what looks to be a chair. Her attire seems to be flowing robes  and she appears in control of her performance. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Girl With Caged Animal

Paducah Purchase Reproductions of Joan Dance Art, brings you the image Girl With caged Animal. In the image we see a girl with what looks to be a captured animal balanced upon her hear. In the background there are sunflowers. The sun has just began to rise and all appears to be bright. There is a slight smile upon her face. At second glance the animal seems somehow familiar. What could this possibly mean ? As always the answer lies with the viewer. Judgment first says to not judge, for when we judge others we judge our self. Judge self and be not judged. Only then can we Judge others and then only to help.

Flip

Paducah Purchase Reproductions of Joan Dance Art, brings you the image Flip. We see family time here. A Father and Mother flip their child and in this way they bond with each other creating memories that last a lifetime. What memories are we making on today ? Worship consists of Giving, Praying, Fasting, and the Use of Wealth.

Musicians

Welcome once again to Edmonds Gallery, home of the paintings of Joan Dance. On today we have for your viewing pleasure the painting, "Musicians." We see a pair of music men, one plays and the other is attentive and ready for his time. Timing may not be everything but it plays an important role in all things. Righteousness is outlined by, What it is, How it comes, and How it works in real life.

Neighborhood Watch 1940

Welcome once again to Edmonds Gallery, home of Joan Dance Paintings.

On today we have for your viewing pleasure the image,” Neighborhood watch 1940.”

This image is a beginning image, for the year 1940 saw the birth of the artist Joan Dance. In this year the practice of looking out for one another was the method of neighborhood protection.

The Artist Joan Dance grew up in this world view. So, in the spirit of watching out for one another we extend the image “Neighborhood Watch 1940.”

In the image we see a woman ironing clothing and looking out of the window.

Three Women Celebrating

Welcome to Edmonds Gallery Joan Dance Paintings. On today we have for your viewing pleasure the image" Three Women". These women appear to be in the act of celebration. What is it that could possibly put these three in the same place doing the same thing together? They appear to have spring flowers overhead and falling about them as they pleasantly celebrate. It comes to my attention that they must be in the process of celebrating the fast approaching season of Spring.The truth is that Winter is melting more and more each day now and soon the sweet aroma of Spring will greet our senses. After the enduring of the cold and dull unpleasant season we welcome the warm and nice season. We must take the time to celebrate with those that we love while we yet can, the day will come when we will not want to go out. Thankfully that day is not today.

Mr Winter

Welcome to Edmonds Gallery the home of Joan Dance Paintings. On today we have for your viewing pleasure the image Mr Winter. Ms Dance has placed her signature style poetry alongside of this image and she has as usual said something with the placement. Winter will indeed come and with it will come all the things associated with the season . But most of all the thing that winter brings is the spring. For how can spring come if winter doesn't prepare the way ? Therefore I welcome this season and the following season this year as I have on all preceding years. Enjoy this cooler season and prepare for the warmer seasons that follow. So without further ado we bring you Mr Winter.
