|I have lived in, and loved, this valley for over 77 years of my life. I have recorded every nuance of
color and cloud and shade and shadow of every season, working in either water color or oil, in an
attempt to show the world the beauty I see every day. I often remember passing a beautiful field of
poppies and lupine, while in the company of my favorite High School art teacher, Ms. Marietta
Voorhees. She turned to me and said "Oh Finch! (maiden name) Don't you wish you could capture
that on canvas?" I have ..... many times, and I would like to think she would be proud of my
Although I have studied with other well-known artists and have taken a variety of classes, I consider
myself mainly self-taught, and have developed my own unique style.
I have been accepted, and taken awards, in many, very prestigious, juried shows; I was a founding
member of Wine Country Artists; a member of the National League of Pen Women; and have
earned my Society of Western Artists signature.
My paintings hang in many private collections, both local and international, and have been chosen in
years past to participate in the silent auction for the famed Napa Valley Wine Auction. I was very
honored when St. Helena Hospital and Health Center bought one of my paintings to present to
Rosemary Clooney, after she performed for one of their charity fund-raisers. The Napa Valley
Heritage Foundation asked me to be one of ten artists to do paintings of the Valley's old stone
bridges for their Heritage Collection.
Unfortunately Hogan Gallery, in the beautiful little town of Yountville, Napa Valley, Ca.. home to
my art for so many years, was forced to close Nov. 1st 2019. This was due to rising rents.
I will be looking for a new home for my paintings so keep an eye on my website and also
on my FB page. Betty Jo March Art) I will continue to post my new works here!
And now....back to my easel!!
Please wander through my site, and I hope you enjoy what I do as much as I enjoy doing it!!
