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.

Wysteria
Wysteria Painting: Enamel, Oil, Latex, Acrylic and Oil Crayon on Canvas. 36" x 48" Painting: Mixed Media Oil on Canvas. Very thick texture areas built up brushwork. This work makes an impactful statement. Nature inspired, gestural brush strokes in contrast with small rhythmic points and lines, improvised to music. Wisteria cascades sweet blooms of lavender and soft purple petals of passion all picturesque outside her door... There are times when a painting comes together with exciting colors filling the room with light. This is one of those times. cheryljohnsonartist.com Changing the world one idea at a time.
