Marc Chagall: 
"All colours are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites."
I have been inspired to return to oil. I love the buttery, velvet, vibrant colors. 
Oil is magic for the way it can move smoothly and leave subtle edges.  
Inspired by Brian Rutenburg.
I painted it to hang on my new red deck and against the red wall of my home in Charlotte, NC.

Corporate Work: Celebration of Spring
Cheryl Johnson: Tryptich: Cheryl usually works on multiple panels or large-scale canvases - striving to attract a natural rather than constructed rhythm from the composition. Her works have a rhythm emanating from the expansiveness of the freely applied color or line. She employs an​ unrestrained use of color and her works have a pervasive luminosity. The titles of her current paintings suggest abstract forests.

Cheryl Johnson: Small Oil Painting: 16'x20' The size of the artwork forces one to go in and really look. “Smaller beckons: get close, touch, relate – they inspire a reduction of the psychic distance between one thing and another; between people and things” – from the book and philosophy: “Wabi Sabi”
