Becky Johnson

Name: Becky Johnson
Bio: Born near St. Louis, Missouri, Becky Johnson spent her childhood traveling extensively with her military family. From her earliest years, drawing was her chief creative outlet, and after moving to Green Mountain Falls, Colorado in 1972, she began to pursue painting as a full-time career. After an early focus on painting wildlife, in recent years landscape, often en plein air, has become her primary focus.
Becky participates in juried and invitational exhibitions throughout the west and Midwest, and her work has received numerous awards. Her work is displayed in collections throughout the United States and overseas, including in the permanent collection of the Mulvane Art Museum, Topeka, Kansas, and the permanent collection of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska. In 2010 she won Second Prize - Animals and Wildlife Category, Pastel 100 National Competition, The Pastel Journal and in 2009 the People's Choice, Douglas Invitational Art Show, Douglas Wyoming.
Medium: Pastel.
Subjects: Landscape,wildlife.
Style: Representational. Becky often works in small formats, which she feels keeps her work fresh and loose as she doesn’t have to get snared in the detail.

Gallery: Original Pastel Paintings
Image View: Going to the first gallery back reveals some half-a-dozen images, and a further link, More Originals, which brings you through a further ten pages of images. Only those on the last few pages have been enabled for enlargement. Download is permitted. Heading Home is 18.5 x 15.5 ins, 383 x 442, 39.4 KB. I chose it because it's unseasonably cold in Ireland at the moment, and Becky's painting shows me how much colder it can be elsewhere!
