About Joan

Hi, I’m Joan Desmond

The posts discuss creativity from the perspective of an artist in order to give you insights into the process. My passion for creativity means I want to encourage everyone to find and use their imaginative muse. Live a creative life and the world will be richer for it.

I paint, draw, design collages, write poetry, create rhythm; a multimedia artist using any means at hand and believing that all creative expression comes from the same impulse.

Do you recognize the sculpture behind me?  It commemorates a sad event actually. But I’m standing in front of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena CA, a museum visit! That is a good thing.

  1. wow oma… wheres that scuplture at?

    • Hi Sweetie, It’s in front of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena.
      It’s titled “The Burghers of Calais” by Auguste Rodin and there is quite a story to it. It’s a duplicate bronze casting.
      I’ll put this museum on our list of things to do when you are visiting in the future

  2. hey, thanks for the “like” … ! … @
