Artist Focus: Courtney Johnson

Courtney is a lovely burst of sunshine in the way of a painter and MFA candidate at CCA from Virginia via Arizona. Her studio is down the way from mine so whenever I am feeling down I can go in there and check out whatever silly thing she's watching on her computer or get my nails done! That's right, there's a nail salon in there, too. Her paintings center around a narrative of girls in feral states amid open skies. They remind me of Egon Schiele in parts and in others 80's cartoons.

Nail Salon and stacks of pre-mixed paints.
A new one. Can't wait to see the others in this series!
