Working large is exciting. In my early career, I had no fear and rolled out the canvas and stretched it across the floor and tacked it to the wall.  I was not concerned the alizarin crimson was $15.00 dollars a tube or that I would paint in my best clothes coming straight from a corporate job. I was simply working with passion and zeal. 
Reminder to self:  Have no fear and paint with passion.

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!
