Mountain Vista by Janet Broussard
Janet Broussard

"Passion is in all great searches" Searching is the artist's journey Janet Broussard is a native Texan and an accomplished painter living in Austin, Texas.  Working in oil, she strives to capture the vitality of the moment, with bold lines and color.           " I have admired the graphic quality of early advertising artists, as well as the  artists of the Taos School. The simplicity of line, shape, light, and shadow has always appealed to me. That dynamic quality is what I strive for in my work."   Janet’s artistic talent came to fruition at an early age, winning her first award in fourth grade, for a watercolor seascape of California’s Bug Sur.  Constantly painting and drawing, with frequent milestones of recognition for her artistic talent, she followed her chosen path to the University of North Texas where she majored in Advertising Art.     Always emotionally inspired by nature, and animals, Maynard Dixon’s southwestern landscapes appealed to her graphic sense with saturated colors and simple shapes that conveyed vast skies and distant buttes.  Other influences include Donna Howell Sickles, Logan Maxwell Hagege and the Taos Painters.   Early in her painting career, Janet became known for her landscapes, still lifes, and architectural work having studied with such notable painters as Matt Smith, Scott Christensen, Skip Whitcomb, John Budicin, and Don Ward. She has had her work juried into shows with the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, American Impressionists, Salon International, and Arts for the Parks.         “I am really enjoying exploring lines borders and shapes in my current series of Western Contemporary paintings.  I am playing with           stylized subjects such as clouds, animals and landscapes, sometimes using a border to emphasize the animal, sometimes using simple             lines.  I find these elements make the images more dynamic.”   After moving to Austin, she enthusiastically pursued landscape painting, and studied with such notable painters as Matt Smith, Scott Christensen, Skip Whitcomb, John Budicin, and Don Ward. She paints small field studies outdoors to capture the essence of the scene, and then later uses these with photographs and observations to create larger works in her studio.
