“I have two different ways to pursue my art; I like to paint people and places.” commented Sam Johnston, artist of versatile passions.
His subjects include people
of all ages in a wide variety of settings, reflecting not only the
artist’s innate talent, but also his years
of classical studies of the human form. As he observed in a recent interview
about his portraiture, his aim is to paint people in such a way that
he involves the viewer with the personality of the subject.
Whether contemplating the
lacy shadows of the Mesa Trail or admiring the sparkling immediacy
of a portrait, the viewer feels a satisfying
appreciation of the artist’s rendering. Sam’s work is collected
around the country and is particularly popular in Monterey County, where
his images have a special appeal to those who know the terrain. For more
