John White Alexander, “Repose,” oil on canvas 1895. At the Met 2019

I have not posted on this site in a long time…but this painting is worth sharing. Go See more at the MET





Painting: Enamel, Oil, Latex, Acrylic and Oil Crayon on Canvas.

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.
Changing the world one idea at a time.

Joan Mitchell Inspired

Joan Mitchel 1

Cheryl Johnson Artist: Abstract Expressionist painter, eminent artistic talent, Charlotte, NC, Kauai, HI
Mixed Media: 36x48x.5 on Canvas

Painting: Acrylic, Latex and Graphite on Canvas.

Cheryl Johnson Artist

I have always had a love affair with Joan Mitchell and finally I just let loose and 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!

These are ideal for someone who wants abstract art.
