Paintings by Jo Tebaldi
Because I am inspired by so many subjects, my paintings are a variety, an eclectic collection. Patterns, colors, rhythms and play of light are all elements of inspiration for painting landscapes, abstracts, portraits, or designs. The elements will beg to be painted and coaxed into view with paint, pencil, wax, and more to play on paper, canvas, and board.
