Works are on Terra Stone Paper. 
TerraSkin is a combination of mineral powder (>75%) and a small quantity (<25%) of non-toxic resin combined to create an environmentally friendly paper.
The production of TerraSkin requires no water, so the TerraSkin paper-making process incurs no water pollutants.

Most importantly, in producing TerraSkin, the harvesting of trees is unnecessary, thereby safeguarding the natural environment’s beauty and biodiversity for all living beings.

Napoli Formations
Inspired by the beautiful mountain formation on the Napoli coast of Kauai. This abstract painting is my impression of a  a cross section of the many thin lava flows that made the Kaua'i Shield Volcano 5.1 million years ago. These narrow layers are tilted towards the lava vent that produced them, and are known as the Napali Formation.

Island Formations
This painting was inspired from studying about how the Hawaiian islands were formed. I love this island and the beauty and inspiration are continual. Kauai's origins are volcanic, the island having been formed by the passage of the Pacific plate over the Hawaii hotspot. At approximately six million years old, it is the oldest of the main islands.

Metamorphic Memories
Metamorphic rocks are made when other rocks are changed underground. Metamorphic rocks form when other rocks have been squeezed, baked and squashed by the heat and pressure of movements inside the earth. Rocks changed mostly by heat are made of sugary crystals. Rocks changed by heat and squeezing have wavy layers. Kauai, and all the islands of Hawaii have been formed from metamorphic rocks.

 Stone Feelings
My heart is filled with words. Rough like an an unpolished diamond ready to morph into facets of beauty. All about me on this islands Kauai I am moved and inspired to change stone feelings into more. Remember picking up a stone or pebble because there was just something about it? Well, here’s a whole quarry of quirky, engaging, happy, sad, afraid, shy, joyful and just plain outrageous 'stone' feelings created for building a room around the stone feelings in this painting.

Sedimentary Sensations
Sedimentary rocks are made of grains from smashed-up or ground-up rock, or from broken and ground-up shells.The grains were either being carried around by water in the sea, lakes or rivers, or being blown around on land by the wind, before settling to build up in layers.These layers then hardened into solid rock again. The grains may be of clay, mud, sand, pebbles, or fossils. Kauai, the island where I live has many layers of sedimentary rocks making up the land under the tropical forest.

Igneous Energy
Igneous rocks come red hot out of earth's oven, spewing up from deep inside the earth and in volcanic eruptions. Igneous rocks were once a liquid called magma. Magma is melted rock that got so hot that it turned into a liquid. Igneous rocks contain crystals that formed when magma cooled down. The slower the magma cooled the bigger the crystals grow. Kauai, the island where I live was formed by volcanic eruptions.

Sheep Collage
Oh My Goodness-Sheep Collage is an energy driven mixed media, oil, acrylic, oil crayon, a collection of interesting elements that layer with color. Colour, of course, is a very important theme. I enjoy the way colour can create a reaction in people, including me. Imagine and then Just do it, and don't second guess yourself.

Suddenly
Suddenly Admiring Joan Mitchell N°20181101 Painting by Cheryl Johnson 36 x 48 Painting: Oil, Acrylics, Latex and Oil Crayon on Canvas. I have always had a love affair with Joan Mitchell and this is the second painting where I emulated her style. What a joy to simply use energy to paint. Joan Mitchell is known for the compositional rhythms, bold coloration, and sweeping gestural brushstrokes of her large and often multi-paneled paintings. Inspired by landscape, nature, and poetry, her intent was not to create a recognizable image but to convey emotions. This painting was inspired by Joan Mitchell. I love to explore technique and style and enlarge my skills. The paintings that I create are meant to bring you joy, and pleasure. I hope they inspire and uplift, as well as enhance your interiors. I believe that our homes should be sanctuaries that surrounds us with comfort, color, beauty and the things we love. I loved creating the colors and brush work in this work. I hope you feel an emotional connection to this work, or perhaps LOVE Joan Mitchell like I do. I hope this painting makes you feel good, then I've accomplished what I set out to do. Hopefully, you'll want this painting in your home or office! Or maybe you're considering this artwork for a special gift. This one is hard to part with today! Thank you Joan!
