Large painting by Wesley Johnson (1934- 2017) signed in the back and dedicated to his friends Jack and Sylvia Gilmour and signed on the bottom front in red paint which makes it difficult to be seen.
Outstanding abstract oil painting in shades of pink with a light touch of green and blue.
Framed in a plain natural wood frame.
One of the most beautiful Wesley Johnson paintings I ever saw!

A listed California painter, muralist, and teacher, Wesley Johnson was born in Ojai, California in 1934, and educated at Ventura College and the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was also a pupil of Howard Warshaw and Andre L'Hote. The cubist style of Warshaw, combined with the airy and light feeling of impressionism and the abstraction of expression, influenced Johnson's style of painting. His paintings often contain large, sweeping strokes, but subtle use of color that evocative of his spontaneous, non-objective style.

Known for his abstract Expressionist works, he exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the DeYoung Memorial Museum, the Gallerie de Seine, and the California State Fair. He also has been widely exhibited throughout the Western United States. He has received many awards for his art including the prestigious James D. Phelan Award for Literature and Art.
