Hi, I’m Layne! 👋 Have we met yet?? Since so many of you are new, I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU and do a quick intro. Say hi and let me know where you’re from below! #fridayintroductions
Be sure to check out the SPECIAL page on my website I created for you. Tap the link in my bio @laynejohnsonstudio for more PLUS cloud wallpapers for your phone. 🙌 ………………………………………………………
Now for some things you may not know about me. Let me know if you can relate to any of these.
. >I’m in Texas - where are you???
>Clouds fascinate me. (Can you tell?!) >Instagram is my daily blog. >I’m a full-time professional oil painter.
>My wife and I have been sweethearts since high school and we’re still best friends. >Our son is also an artist. Hard to imagine, right??! LOL He's an awesome 3D game artist – check his work out @brett_johnson_portfolio.
>Yes, I AM working on a full-length cloud painting course. COMING SOON! PROMISE! (Sign up so you don’t miss it) >I’m the middle kid. If you’re a middle child, you know what that means. 😜 >I grew up playing trombone and music is very dear to me. Beautiful music can move me to tears. >I wish I was multi-lingual, but I only speak English. And chicken. >We have 5 chickens and they’re all named after Harry Potter characters: Hermione, Luna, Molly, Bella and Dory. >When I’m not in the studio you’ll most often find me in the garden, or out on my tractor. Or out chasing clouds. >I grew up watching the Three Stooges, then the Marx Brothers; then graduated on to Monty Python. You can guess what my sense of humor is like! >Started painting when I was about 12 after buying my first art supplies with allowance money.
>I currently paint landscapes (primarily), mostly of Texas and exclusively in oils. >I spent 15 years creating art for more than 20 kids picture books. I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing authors. (Check out my books 📚 on Amazon.) >I like to solve real life puzzles. And build things. And create things. . Thanks again for following along on my art journey. It’s wonderful to have a community to share this with! Y’all are the BEST! 🙏🙏🙏
Guess who’s actually working on an illustration again? Me! This is still in its wip phase, but I have a pretty solid idea of where I’m gonna go with it. Probably gonna swap the red and blue around and add a nice gradient to the background💕
