Demos occur most often at our general meeting 1-2 p.m. on the second Monday of the month between October and May
Have you ever wondered why you paint? Have you ever asked yourself why you enjoy painting more at sometimes than at other times? At times, do you just paint to enter a show? Or for a commission? Do you want to paint but sometimes find it hard to get started? Do you try to paint like someone else? Do you have artists work that you admire? Is their work recognizable to you? Do you want to discover your own voice and your own creativity We have all asked ourselves these questions.
We won’t answer all these questions because we are all different, but you will come away with some concrete ideas on how to discover the “muse” or voice with YOU! Lynda Burress will present a demo of ways to develop your own creativity and how to get started. At the very least, you will learn some preliminary warm-up ideas to get you started to jump right into your next master piece.
Lynda Burress is an expressionist artist with a unique, often whimsical colorful style. Using bright vibrant color to draw the viewer in with strong composition, values and shapes. She creates movement throughout her paintings.
Lynda received her Bachelor of Fine Art from Utah State University. She joined the Utah Watercolor Society while attending college in Cache Valley and served as president for two years. She has taught watercolor classes, workshops and children’s art camps. She has won many awards over the years but claims her greatest joy in painting is to see faces light up when viewing her work.
Lynda wasn’t always an artist. While bedridden with a life altering illness years ago, she received a small set of watercolors. Tapping into her creativity, she started painting from bed. It was just the therapy she needed and within months she found herself healing with a new found passion and love for painting.
