36"x24" Oil on stretched canvas by artist Lynne Millar
Raised in McLean, Virginia, I earned my BA in Art History from Brigham Young University, with many art classes along the way and thereafter. Now I raise my family of four children in Central California with my amazing husband Steve, and paint. Constantly.
The process of putting a brush to surface slows time down for me so I notice subtleties - texture on a petal, a swipe of ripening pigment on a pear, light filtering through a child's skirt - in ways I otherwise entirely miss. Painting is my way of paying attention to and processing the beauty and complexity of the world (and people) around me, through color, brushstroke, and texture.
