Jo painted this seascape after a summer visit to her aunt's in Pacifica. California. "It was a beautiful afternoon and we strolled along the beach where the gulls were everywhere," says Jo. "The wind was blowing hard and there was a chill in the air. I wanted to catch the feeling of joy we get from nature, and a sense of wild freedom in this landscape."

Artist Jo Galang expresses a quiet nostalgia in her airy interpretations of the landscapes and waterways of the Pacific Northwest. Her soft oil paintings capture the meditative sounds of rivers and waterfalls flowing past her easel. During the summer, she spends as much time as possible outside creating plein air sketches and studying the light on the landscape. As a young art student in the Philippines, Jo was privileged to study with the renowned painter Danilo Dalena, who she says encouraged her to be the artist she is today. "I believe my art looks simple enough that people have no idea how much time I have spent working on it," she says. When she is not painting, Jo and her husband enjoy taking road trips, playing cards and finding creative ways to spend time with their granddaughter.
