Painting #16 was inspired by Lynnea. Lynnea came into my life when she married my brother. Though our connection began through their marriage, she is my sister through and through. When I started this piece I needed to use soft, gentle colors that reflected an enlighten nature. There is not one ounce of conflict in her soul. On the outside she is gentle, unselfish, non judgmental and giving. On the inside she is a lioness. A pillar of strength. Steadfast and true to the people in her life but most of all to her faith.
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
