His artistic inclinations were again awakened while living
near Laguna. Viewing the beautiful works in the galleries of the area, he gave
in to the need to express himself in art. After a period of dabbling in pencil,
pen and ink and acrylic, Aaron began to work in oil in 1994.
The Masters of California Impressionism heavily influenced
Joseph Aaron. His work reflects his passion for this sensual style of rendering
the natural beauty. Although he is also adept at still life and floral
paintings, his burning passion is to render outdoor scenes like the early
California impressionists. His favorite subjects are drawn from the areas of
Santa Barbara and Ojai, north up the coast, to Morro Bay.
Joseph is now a dedicated, full time painter with the
desire to be known and remembered for his work. Recently listed in Davenport’s
