Portrait of Joel R Edwards
Joel Edwards renders realism in mediums of pencil, oil, and watercolor. The majority of his artwork depicts physical landscapes and exquisite nature scenes. Upon closer observation, every single brush and pencil stroke that he lays down reveals a quiet meditation on his surroundings. The environments Joel portrays show consciousness and contemplation. 
The intent of Joel’s artistic creations is to deliver a message of spiritual truth to the viewer. In his revelations, he seeks to add a sense of tranquility to mundane reality.
