"The Art of Sharing Memories"

   Mission Statement

Our mission here at JD Brown Studios is to offer beautifully crafted paintings of some of the history of our community, Pomeroy, Washington in Garfield County, where we were both raised.  Our goal is to reproduce our patrons' memories, by taking your photos and bringing them to life, in whatever setting you choose, and from anywhere not just Garfield County.  We also offer quality, signed and numbered, Limited Edition Prints on smooth canvas, specializing in Scenic Rural Landscapes as well as Historical and Wildlife Renditions.  Another important goal is to become prolific enough to give back to our community, through raffles, auctions and all out contributions to the people and organizations who serve and help our community endure. 

Satisfaction is guaranteed and there is no contract on Commissions, or custom original artwork.  Commissions, if proofed for reproduction, will come with a Certificate of Authenticity, for your protection.  It is a copyright infringement to personally reproduce or duplicate any image produced by JD Brown Studios.  We reserve the right to use any image produced by our Studio, on other products, such as calendars, greeting cards, book covers, posters, placemats, wallpaper, doormats, tattoos, toilet paper, etc.  Thank you for your support and for being a part of our passion of sharing nostalgic memories and giving back to our community.

"The Art of Sharing Memories"



    When asked to write my autobiography for an art reception, I thought about telling everybody about all the jobs I’ve had, the boards I’ve been on, the sports I played, and how wonderful and intelligent my children and grandchildren are, but since I have lived in Pomeroy, WA my whole life, everyone already knows all that.  So, I will skip all that and give you the unknown, inside scoop on my path to becoming an artist/ilustrator.

    It all started in Second Grade when I got my first Artist Commission.  My buddy, Dirty Johnny, wanted me to draw a picture of the posterior of one of our classmates.  So, I did, it was beautiful, we got caught, grounded, and could not play together for months.  That incident seriously stalled my artistic career until High School where they had an ingenious idea called ‘Study Hall’. There I learned to draw cartoons and caricatures of my teachers and classmates.  When I became a teenager, everything was pretty much of a testosterone blur, until I got married.  In 1980, Susy bought me a 35 mm Kodak Camera for our anniversary, and I went about the county snapping photos, hoping to become a photographer.  I found I did not have the patience or knowledge and had no control over the lighting or weather.  After watching Bill Alexander and Bob Ross on PBS for years, I figured it can’t be that hard to paint a picture of one of my photos.  So, I bought the Bob Ross Oil Painting Starter Kit and found out I was wrong.  After several attempts and a big mess that is still visible, I threw the paints and brushes into a box, and forgot about it.

    As a child, I spent a lot of time with my Grandmother, Lois Dixon Brown, while my parents were out of town.  She was immensely proud and spoke often of her mother, Jennie Dixon, who painted several pictures, and which are now scattered throughout the family.    When she died in 1983, I went home and frantically built a 200-pound easel out of scrap 2x6’s and ¾” plywood, dug out my box of paints, and began painting one reject after another.  Wildlife and landscapes were my first frustration, and I gave many of my first paintings to friends and family.  Then I pulled out my old photos from the early 80’s and began to find my niche. I had a wonderful and memorable experience growing up in Pomeroy and attempt to convey those memories that so many of us share.  Ever since entering my first Garfield County Fair, the encouragement from family, friends and others in the community has been a driving force for me.  I feel truly fortunate to have a hobby which combines with my desire to preserve our local history, to share memories, and to live in a community who appreciates it. 

     Since I wrote this light-hearted art bio for being the featured artist at the local Blue Mountain Artisan Guild three years ago, most of you know, that my life has changed significantly.  There are times in our lives when hobbies, or things that were important, suddenly seem unimportant.  I was a lost soul after Sue died, and my desire to paint died too.  Then Cathy Reinland came into my life, and to make a long story very short, we spent the last year turning ‘my nest’, into ‘our home’.  We made a lifetime decision because life does not get better than this.  Cathy is unselfish, compassionate, proactive, patient, techy and tenacious, in everything she does.   We would like to give back to the community that raised us, so when I mentioned turning my hobby into a business, she willingly volunteered to become my promotor, or ‘Art Agent’.  Since I am the sole proprietor, she will be seriously over worked and under paid.  So, hang on, off we go!    Wish us luck while we wish you all good health and a big ‘thank you’ for your support.

We enjoy Kayaking (a new sport for each of us) in the late spring, summer, and early fall with our 20 year old dog Koda.  We also have 2 Cats, 6 Hens, and 1 Rooster, as every mini farm should have these.  We also love gardening together, Cathy is the flower child and JD is the food grower, when the deer don't mow everything down.  We love the outdoors and spending time at our mini farm.  We enjoy our time with our blended family and friends.  We love it when the little kids come out for sleepovers, and are taking advantage of every moment, as there will come a time when we won't be as "cool" as we are now.   We enjoy  attending Grandkid Events when we can. 
We play a lot of Chess in the winter months, read, watch TV, watch a lot of Basketball,
watch it snow, etc.  Fortunately we both LOVE Christmas which makes the Holiday season Magical, Merry, and Bright.  Through some rough times for both of us, we took a large step forward together.  We both feel very blessed that when things go dark in life, there is hope after pain.  We truly love our life, our family, our community, and our  joyous Retirement Job.
