 acrylic paintings by Joel Jacobson

Joel is originally from Philipsburg a small town in Central Pennsylvania.  Joel has an Associate Degree in Architectural Technology is from Williamsport Community College, a Bachelors Degree and a Masters in Education from Kutztown and has done graduate work at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.  He taught middle school and high school art for 33 years and has been retired since 2005.  After retirement he started painting again for fun.  The subject matter he chooses brings back fond memories of growing up and the cars and trucks he knew well.  He presents them in a realistic way, but with a little twist of abstraction.  Just giving the observer enough visual information to have them look at his painting for a minute and say … oh yeah, I remember that car or truck.  For now he finds his approach engaging, fun, challenging and creative.  Where he will go from here… who knows?
