'J R' Johansen
Harold "JR" Johansen is an American artist with roots in Denmark and England. He received his Fine Arts degree from Brigham Young University and Weber State College. He has painted in Europe, Asia, U.S., Middle East and Africa. He has painted in oils, watercolors, acrylics and pastels. In his Gallery and Sales Link are some of his most recent Pastel Paintings including those which can be purchased on-line. J R paints and frames in a total acid free environment. His original works will last for centuries without change. This cannot be said of watercolors, oils or acrylics due to the unstable properties such as oils and plastics required to transfer pigment to the surface. His fascination with people and their culture has influenced his desire to do portraits. Of the more than 500 paintings he has done in the last 35 years, 95% have been pastel portraits.
