Claire de Lune

I decided to call this series Claire de Lune, because after seeing the fullest and brightest moon that I have seen in a long time I wanted to paint bright circular shapes.  Usually I paint forest looking abstracts so this was a new challenge.
Clair de Lune is French for "light of the moon,”  It is also one of my favorite pieces. "Clair de lune" (Debussy), third movement of Suite bergamasque by Claude Debussy.

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.

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.
