Mariah Ann Johnson
Aloha II, 2008
Acrylic & gouache on paper
9 x 12 inches
$75 via Transformer’s online Flat File

Now this piece just makes me happy. Who doesn’t love rainbows? But this interpretation is special, and I love the deconstructed quality of the beams. I was recently in Hawaii (and got engaged..wha?) and the rainbows there are truly magical – all over the sky, and many times multiple rainbows overlapping (what does it mean?? lol)

This artist, is a local DC artist and a friend of mine. Her works are usually much larger and at a higher price point, and that’s what’s great about local art organization, Transformer’s online flat file. It contains lots of works, one-off sketches, and prints on paper at affordable price points. You can frame them however you want, and start to build up quite a nice collection if you go through and pick a few pieces out.
