Becky Johnson has worked in pastel for more than 45 years. Her distinctive style is self-taught, and after an early focus on painting wildlife, in recent years landscape has become her primary subject. Photos taking while traveling to and from art shows around the Midwest often provided reference for new work, and in 2005 an opportunity to paint 'en plein air' added another exciting element to her landscape paintings. She is especially intrigued by light, and often chooses to light a scene with early morning or late afternoon sun.
