This project will be a new challenge of painting portraits inspired by the artist Ann Gale. She is known for her portrait paintings, which consist of an accumulation of small color patches expressing the changing light and the shifting position of her models over time. 
I am returning to my love of oil and will create these new paintings of my lover, Carol as a gift for her courage and desire to overcome her fears. 

This is how I see her always. Beautiful and shining.

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”

Corporate Work: Celebration of Spring
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.
