artist for March, Randy Johnson, is in all ways a contemporary artist,
and his images are pure abstraction. They are also often very sensuously
beautiful as he seems to prefer great swirling movement in rich, high-value,
warm colors, sometimes contrasting with mysterious blues and odd shots
of high intensity red. The variety of feelings he creates is testament
to the ability of the abstracts to change mood. Randy is also a totally
contemporary craftsman, mastering technologies just recently created."
