The Art of It: Light and Shadow
Illustrator Bonnie Johnson is currently the artist-in-residence at the Weir Farm Art Center.
“After a day of sketching, I wandered into the field behind one of the buildings at Weir Farm and noticed an unusual scene that caught my attention. There was an especially bright, glowing light behind a stand of trees. It was magical to me. I wanted to capture that moment and share it through my painting,” says artist Bonnie Johnson of her haunting work Light Behind Trees.
