casein painting of trees on farmland with cows on the right
Krentz Johnson, "Creature Comforts", Casein, 16 x 20 in, at Laguna Beach Showcase Invitational, LPAA Gallery September 1-October 11, 2022, $1200

Krentz Johnson: Creature Comforts from Santa Ysabel Preserve, Desert Flames in Anza Borrego Desert and Swim Club Paint San Clemente Competition have one thing in common: The universal encounter of inner soul meets outer world. Or in plein air-ese, it’s the view that strikes me with enough force that it makes me drop everything else and pick up a brush.
