Timi Johnson wins the Best of Show Juneau Juried Art Show

 

 

Southeast Alaska in all of it's moods, allows me to leap into the space of oil painting.  I am pulled toward a particular image first by the contrast of lights and darks and inspired, secondly, by something I can't quite isolate in the meaning. 

 

"Oil  painting encourages action over thinking,   and abstraction over realism.   It keeps you in the NOW.    You can’t step in the same river twice”
