I created this work after looking closely at works by Francis Bacon. 
The work was created to possibly understand his process and technique. The particular piece I emulated was after a "Study for Head" of George Dyer, 1967, oil on canvas by Francis Bacon. Private collection. © The Estate of Francis Bacon / DACS, London, 2005.
Although I created my version in acrylic and pastel vs. oil. I found the process challenging and intriguing.

Small Oil
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”

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.
