Mary Johnston “Trees #39”
12 x 12 inches, oil on board
Mary Johnston is a contemporary landscape & abstract painter. The natural elements, large expansive sky, peaceful water, quiet green forests, the rocks and wind through the grass are the passions that dominate her work.
Mary was born and raised in Duluth, MN, graduating from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. A move to New Jersey exposed Mary to the great art and museums of New York City and to the Somerset Art Association in Bedminster, NJ where she learned to really be an artist.. A short two years in California during the '90's gave Mary the huge view of the Pacific and the gorgeous colors of the West Coast. A move to Indiana in 2003 exposed Mary to oil paints and the beautiful expansive sky of the Midwest, which continues to inspire her work.
