My master bedroom has been long overdue for an upgrade. It was basically just 4 walls and a bed, with the weird yellowish color on the walls. It was terrible. So, I finally fixed it, and my favorite part of the whole process was creating a series of small fluid art paintings using all the left […]
About Anjuli Johnson
My name is Anjuli Johnson, and I'm a mixed media artist. Goodness, it feels so good to say that! I've been many things in my career- a cashier, a teacher, a manager, an assistant. etc., but I was never proud to tell anyone what I did for a living until I discovered my passion for art.
It's taken me a long time to overcome many of my fears and jump into mixed media art. I've always felt critical of my own talent and intimidated by the talent of others, but over the past few years I've come to understand that each of us inspires and uplifts others around us, and though our passions and talents differ, each is essential. I hope that you are inspired and uplifted by what you find in The Far Pavilion- it's my hope that I can help others have courage to keep learning and trying new things, just as I have been helped in the past.

It is fascinating to watch the way the inks interact with each other. The alcohol gives so much movement, creating a look within your painting that you don’t have much […]
I’ve been so obsessed with maps lately that I can’t stop painting them. I think it’s mainly because they have so much meaning. A map is essentially just a picture of straight and curved lines. But if you recognize the place it represents, you can find your home, your old school, your best friends house, […]
I hope everyone’s fall has been spectacular so far! I’ve been so busy bouncing from one project to the next that I’m stoked if I even finish anything at all! Is anyone else like that sometimes? I really hope I’m not the only one, and since I finally finished one project- this abstract painting of […]
