You Have My Attention

8X8″  Pastel and Multimedia on Suede Matboard by: J.Voss

This is my latest painting, it was the  intensity of his look that made me want to paint him.  It’s not easy to photo a boxer with the attention he has on his face.  They are so excitable and friendly animals.  It was a pleasure to paint him.  Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to please contact me in my email if you would like to purchase or talk about the art.

Thank Y0u    J.Voss


About The Artist : J. Voss

Having lived in Alaska for many years, a lot of my influence and paintings come from subjects found there, displaying the beauty of the “Great Land”. I now live in San Diego, Ca., having moved here in 1986, and many of my paintings are of the surrounding area as well as the local wild life and subjects from the San Diego Zoo.  I am a member of Gallery 23 in Balboa Parks Spanish Village , several of my paintings are on display there.  Stop by and check them out if you are in the area!  It”s such a pleasure to display and sell my art in the gallery with so many other talented artists.

I hope you enjoy my web site and the paintings that I display here.  Please feel free to contact me by email  if you have any questions or comment or talk about art.  It”s always wonderful to communicate with people who love art, I also love to do paintings of peoples loved pets, they are so dear to our hearts.   A lot of my work is done in oil, pastel, and  some  are done in colored pencil and multi media .  Landscapes, still life, animals, or an interesting scene are my subjects.  The beauty of art tells us stories or portrays emotion and beauty and I hope I am able to realize those feelings in my paintings.

Maine Coon Cat

This Painting was so fun to do as I had a Maine Coon Cat at one time, (until the coyotes came into my yard).  Anyway, painting it brought back a lot of great memories for me and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting it. Please email me if you would like to discuss the painting or possible purchase.

Rainy Day








24X30 Oil on Canvas     Titled: Rainy Day        By   J.Voss

This is one of my more impressionistic  painted in oil with brush and pallet knife of a girl walking to church, reminds me of people you see on a rainy day and wonder why they are even out there in the weather.  It was a lot of fun doing this painting and hope you enjoy.  Please contact me if you would like to talk or purchase any of my paintings.

Commissioned Paintings

11/x14 Pastel Paintings  By:  J.Voss

Both of these paintings were commissioned by their owners as they were very important to their family.  Both were done in Pastel, and could have been done in oil as well depending on the peoples wishes.  These were painted by using photos, though it is nice if I could see the animal as personality comes into play and I get to see their individual inflections,  but not necessary.

Please contact me if you would like to talk about a commissioned piece that you might like to have done. It’s also a pleasure to talk about art anytime.

I’m Watching You

Pastel 12X20  Titled: I’m Watching You     By  J.Voss

This painting of an adult Mandrill Gorilla was done in pastel and was quite challenging.  He is real pensive looking and was hoping I captured that look in my painting.  The Mandrill is so colorful and majestic that I just had to paint him.  Please contact me if you would like to discuss anything about this or any of my paintings.
