Lynn Powers Retrospective Art Show

Lynn's family and friends are pleased to announce this exhibition of over 40 of Lynn Powers' original paintings.  These and many more are also available as prints.

Prints - LynnPowersArt

Prints are now available for about 70 of Lynn Powers' paintings

After Lynn Powers' death in March, 2016 her family decided to make as many of her original works available as prints so that more people could enjoy her art.  They also decided to contribute 100% of the profits from these prints to the Lynn Powers Art Fund (within the Albany, Oregon, Public Schools Foundation). 

This fund will expand local art opportunities for the youth of Lynn's home town, Albany, into perpetuity.

 


 

Prints are now available for about 70 of Lynn Powers' paintings.

Great Weekend: WSO & Watercolor Artist Ratindra Das

This past weekend Jim and I headed to Hermiston, OR to take part in the Watercolor Society of Oregon's Fall Convention. We were there representing Creative Catalyst Productions and so it was even more fun to get a chance to have dinner with Creative Catalyst artist Ratindra Das. Das is a juror at the show and will be teaching a workshop.

 

 

Figurative Invitational at the Grants Pass Museum of Art

Lynn Powers watercolor portrait artist

This past week, my mother was visiting from California. Besides getting to call her my Mom, Jan Kunz is also an incredible watercolorist. It's an understatement to say we talked a lot about art. On the drive back down to California, we had the privilege of stopping by the Grant's Pass Museum of Art's Figurative Invitational. I have four pieces in the show, and the entire show is laid out beautifully. The show runs from now until November 13th.

Lynn named "One to Watch" by Watercolor Artist Magazine

I feel so incredibly honored to be in the list of Ones to Watch in the December issue of Watercolor Artist. Sharing the honor with Nancy E. Caldwell (Huntington Beach, Calif.), Bonnie L. Catron (Austinville, Va.), Ryan Fox (Raleigh, N.C.),  Dorothy Lee (Los Angeles), Jenny Medved (Sarasota, Fla.), Tim Oliver (Lubbock, Texas), Judy Saltzman (Sarasota, Fla.), Eileen Sudzina (McKeesport, Penn.), and Everett Webber (West Lebanon, N.H.) Thank you Watercolor Artist!

Pendergast

This nice gentleman let me photograph him last year while on the Ferry from Whitby Island. His name was Pendergast, like the watercolorist, and that's why I remember his name. I've lost his contact information so if anyone recognizes him, please let me know. I'd like to send him a high resolution image.

Daisy Painting

This is part of my flower series. I did it back in 2007. My favorite part of it still is the reflected light in the middle right flower.

New Work- Late Night Tea & Cookies

I've worked as a graphic designer for many years, and I have a true love for things that are graphic in nature. Some of my poster work and flower work really reflect this. I want the viewer to see the design and color more than texture necessarily. This is why frisking and airbrush are so great. It's a really time consuming process but I love the control and outcome.

 

For Late Night Tea & Cookies (part of my Just for Fun series), I did perhaps want more grayed out colors. Maybe a bit less brash and a bit more sophisticated.

 

I learned a lot on this project especially about how absolutely critical it is to be tidy. I can't be in a rush and I need to double check everything. I need to have excellent light and a very sharp knife. I also need to be in a quiet setting so that I can hear when I'm cutting the friskit correctly. I need to make sure that I can hear it cut all the way through and then not be too eager and pull the friskit up too quickly. It's not a loose process, but I still find it worth the work.
