My name is Joseph Cardinal. I am an untrained artist that loves color. I am originally from New York City, grew up on Long Island, rode cross country on my motorcycle some 45 years ago. I guess my travels in cris-crossing the country gave me a visual background for content and color in my paintings. I am not an artist that spends weeks, months etc. on paintings, rather a few hours at the most. I like to move along. I am a restless spirit.
