An example of fine art by Johanna Morrell

I am a process artist. When I begin a painting, it is usually spontaneous and gestural.  I don’t know where it comes from; I just feel the brush start to move. AHA! should we call it “Ouija Art”? I want to end up with something that hasn’t been seen before. After a few strokes, I analyze it and decide what layers will follow. What layers will pull it together. If the piece provokes an idea or memory in the viewer, I am very happy. If it simply stimulates a positive, immediate  response, I am satisfied.
