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.

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!

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”
