About Cindy Johnston
My earliest childhood recollection of fine art was made after viewing an oil painting called "Rainy City"; I was amazed that you could actually feel the cold gloom of the night rain and the excitement of the city lights at the same time. It left a lasting impression on me. I spent my school and university years studying science and literature in a small community in Northern Alberta, so art was never in my scope of possibilities for a career. My mom, a gifted artist herself, bought me a watercolour course and supplies in 1998 as a way to “escape” the routine of being a new mother. It was the best gift I ever got, and it served to change my life. Over the next 10 years, I moved from soft watercolors to bold acrylics and mixed media, and my love of creating art grows daily.
My goal is to create art that makes you think about it long after you have viewed it; to make you feel something significant and to have it physically affect you. I enjoy structured compositions, an Old Master’s rich color palate, an emphasis on texture, and I like to blend realism with a slightly abstract point of view. I love to use mixed media, working layers of paint, ink, pastel, and exotic or antique papers into my experimental work. I believe that the title of a piece is often fundamental in guiding the viewer into the soul of the painting; to share the imprint that it was meant to leave.
I feel a sense of peace and relief after I complete a piece. Each painting is like a baby that I am letting out into the world with a little piece of me with it. I am happy to see them go, as it is a way of sharing myself in a very personal way with others.
