’14 February 2006′, 46 x 40, Oil on Canvas, 2006.
For as long as I can remember, the Lynn Boggess piece above has been one of my personal favorites. All the elements that often pull people to Lynn’s work are present — perspective, natural beauty, capturing reflection, movement, and a feeling of perfect calm. He creates a wild duality in his work: far away you would swear you were looking through a window to the natural world, yet up close the heavy impasto of the oil paint is interestingly abstract.
On Friday, February 24th, 2012 from 6:30-9:00pm we’ll be opening our annual exhibition for Lynn focusing on his winterscapes. Last year we were all stunned by a 64 x 54 inch canvas that Lynn captured after putting chains on his truck tires and making a long, treacherous trek into the depths of his Canvas, West Virginia property. It was just magnificent!

We hope to see you on February 24th! Lynn will be in attendance to talk about his adventures with this 2012 batch of paintings.
