About the Artist

Roger Hayden Johnson captures the rich colors of sunlight at dawn and dusk in his architectural landscapes and seascapes. He travels the back roads of the Southwest (New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado) in search of old and indigenous architectural structures. He also loves to explore fishing harbors throughout Europe for small wooden boats. Then in the few short minutes right after sunrise or the fleeting moments before sundown, he takes photos in his favorite light — that spectacular long-shadowed light of intense, rich color and cool, deep shadow. It's this special light that brings a sense of stillness and tranquility to Johnson's paintings.
