Joe is well known for the quality of light in his work. He is greatly influenced by the changing of seasons and the weather. The more dramatic the weather, the more inspired he feels. Joe celebrates the mood each season brings and he enjoys working on location to accurately see and capture the changing light. “Although I may be attracted to a certain place or scene, it is always my goal to move beyond a literal translation and say something extraordinary about light in my work. It is always the light and its effects that inspire me.”
Joe’s hard work and consistency are often rewarded. In the Spring of 2017, Joe's painting "Path Of Light" received The Artist's Choice, People's Choice and Best Pastel awards at the Carmel Plein Air Festival.

In 2016 his painting, The Tide And Tempest, received “Best Of Show” in the 2nd Annual Rejoice In Art exhibition.
