Art Poem


“We painters sometimes strangely keep

Secrets Deep

When life runs quiet what secrets do we share

Paintings emerge to make

Each their own bright-colored moment

Impulse and passion 

Finding their way with tone and line;

Colors pulsing dreams will make 

Beauty, giving art its theme

From each moment of life's daily miracle

Embrace and begin again.”

–Cheryl Johnson


The main feature of Abstract Art is that it is a non-representational practice, meaning that art embraces abstraction a departure from accurate representation – this departure can be slight, partial, or complete. Abstract art uses shape, form, color, and line to create a composition that may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.
