"Sassy Chick II" impressionist style oil painting of a yellow chick

2019

About

Impressionist style oil painting of a yellow chick on dark red/brown background. I am inspired by the simple everyday interaction of the animals in their environment: the way the light dances across the form, the harmony of color relationships and the shapes of light and shadow. I prefer early-morning light or late afternoon settings, with extreme backlighting. My focus is on the farm animals, their character and the use of color, light and texture to convey a mood.” Cheri Christensen was born in Enumclaw, Washington, a small rural town of horse, dairy, and cattle ranches at the foot of Mt. Rainer. She attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Washington. Cheri studied oil painting and drawing intensely for three years with Ron Lukas, a protégé of Sergei Bongart, who taught in the tradition of Russian Impressionism. Cheri concentrates on seeing and conveying the effects of color and light on form. The first painting Chistensen submitted to a competition was included in a prestigious exhibition at the Charles Emma Frye Art Museum in Seattle, and the first painting to include farm animals received the Beatrice Jackson Memorial award for Best Traditional Landscape in the Allied Artists of America 1995 show. Cheri has been featured in several magazines such as American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, and Southwest Art Magazine. She currently has 3 videos available through Liliedahl Video Productions,” Straight Ahead,” “Highlight”, and “Keeping an Eye Out,” where she demonstrates both her brush and palette knife techniques. She is also featured in books such as, “Art Journey, New Mexico,” and “Finding your Visual Voice. A Painter’s Guide to Developing and Artistic Style.” She currently resides in Texas.
