Painting in the studio doesn’t have the force of nature compelling you or driving you to make these works with the same dynamic qualities. My goal is to record what it feels like to be there.

Lynn Boggess translates his experience and feelings using his exceptional prowess with masonry trowels, with the results trumpeting a tangible love of nature, place and time and transporting the viewer to the heart of the scene. These landscapes overwhelm the senses with lush and vivid scenes while also allowing room for meditation on the deeper relations between human life and the natural world. Lynn will be present for this expression of his passion for the landscape with a selection of oil paintings focusing on the reflections of summer.
