Featured Artist: Lynne Lockhart!

God is Love by Lynne Lockhart 16×20″ Oil

Lynne Lockhart has a gift for painting animals. I featured her once before and when I saw this painting I knew I just had to feature her again! God Is Love is a striking painting, I love nocturnes, and a nocturne with a dog… whoa! I love how this sweet dog is looking right at you. I love how she did the eyes. Fabulous painting! When you check out Lynne’s paintings you’ll see what a knack she has for painting animals. Not just a typical portrait. I love the one dog she painted stretching and yawning, it’s fabulous! (Go look!!)

Painting is a visual language and so is much of the language of animals. The quiet observation of the natural world, both wild and tame provides endless painting possibilities. No matter the subject, the application of paint to canvas is the easy part. Understanding anatomy, the nature of light and knowing your materials are only some of the variables one gets to juggle. However, the real challenge for me is the interpretation of what I see. That is the translation from subject to canvas. It is this translation through the artist that makes the difference in painters. Our facts may be the same but our truths are different.

Lynne Lockhart is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists. She lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with 2 mutts and her husband, painter Kirk McBride. They all go exploring together.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
