JOHNE RICHARDSON Native Kansas artist Johne Richardson has explored outdoor subject matter ranging from the rocky shores of New England to the rugged red rock hills of the Southwest. He’s a Prairie boy at heart though, and always returns to his roots in painting where the earth meets the sky. Light and atmosphere are key elements in paintings that describe cows coming over a hill in early morning, light breaking after a late summer downpour, or a barn seen over the top of a ripe cornfield. Johne has been painting in watercolor for over twenty-five years, and currently lives in Overland Park, Kansas with his wife and three children. Besides exhibiting with the Arts For The Parks Top 100, Johne’s work has been represented in the Kansas Watercolor Society’s annual exhibition, and numerous local juried exhibitions. Several local and regional galleries have represented his work, and Johne’s paintings currently hang in the corporate headquarters of Applebee’s International. His work is represented in numerous private collections, including the retired CEO of Hallmark Cards, Inc.
