OIL AND ACRYLIC ON CANVAS by Jessica Johnson
I started this year looking for fresh perspectives. I wanted to paint in different ways and with new ideas, but I wasn’t sure how to begin. In truth, I felt a deep creative exhaustion after a very busy year, and needed some time to recharge my batteries so-to-speak and create space for creativity to flourish again.
One of those “creating space” moments happened after the sun went down quickly as my partner and I were nearing the end of a half-day hike through the woods. At first I was alarmed, “Oh no! It’s getting dark.. Better get back to the car soon.” But slowly, the moon rose over the trees and we could see the path ahead nearly as clear as before. It ended up being all the more beautiful and inspired several more “night hikes” to come.
A night scene so perfectly captured my desire to explore the unknown with my art. As night washes over a landscape, everything changes. Beyond the effects of night on earth, much of our galaxy and those beyond it are full of places and things yet to be discovered – the Great Unknown.
Using paint more abstractly, I really enjoyed capturing a big beautiful milky way effect at night over one of my most favorite mystical and timeless places on earth – Crater Lake.
