Easel Time.
 At Play.
 At Work.

Hi, I'm Robert Joyner

My favorite materials are acrylics, watercolors, paper, worn paintbrushes, graphite, crayons and inks. My style has been described as loose, bold and unique which I tend to agree with.

The majority of my time is spent making really bad art. Occasionally I get lucky and create winners, too. Guess I like to play & doodle more than painting finished pieces which I find rather boring. Somehow I manage to make a living & paint full time - lucky me.

What I'm Up To

I'm currently focused on watercolor. It was my first medium and certainly my favorite. I love the looseness and immediacy. I also feel it lends itself to my natural style. In addition to that I'm creating a lot of tutorials and teaching online workshops at my new teaching website painthog.com.

Making Fine Art Affordable

My goal as a full time art professional is to make fine art affordable and accessible for everyone, not just the rich. I enjoy connecting with collectors all around the world from retired Military to the middle class single mom that deserves to own great art. See available paintings here.
