Vertical Peaks Fine Art FB Page

POSTED 10-28-12

@Lynn Welker is one of our outstanding artists represented here at Vertical Peaks. She is a mixed media, abstract narrative landscape painter. With the various texturing mediums of oil and acrylic on canvas and paper, she is able to beautifully and imaginatively take us to places beyond where can go ourselves, or where even a lot of other artists can take us. These places are mystical, spiritual, historical, and have a sense of a new reality within old or even ancient pasts. Going on a journey to these places, via Lynn’s talent, is always a joy, and frequently a healing experience. Recently a woman, visiting our gallery, was drawn to one of Lynn’s pieces and just stood staring at it for quite some time. When asked what she saw in this piece she replied, “I guess that I see me but in a better place.” Hmmmm. That probably says it all. Lynn has an upcoming exhibition in November at Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. The dates are October 31st, through December 3rd, with the opening reception on November 1st, during the Laguna Beach monthly Art Walk. The theme of the exhibition is “Imagined Narratives”. All of the paintings can be viewed by browsing the events calendar on the Western Art & Architecture website. Here is photo of Lynn at the gallery alongside her painting entitled “Days End”. Good work, Lynn. You rock!

After a visit to the frame shop, my banner painting, "Common Ground" is hanging in its new home in Clovis, CA. Here it is at Art & Frame Express ready to wrap up for shipping.

Paul and Dan, owners of Art & Frame Express, have been in business for many years
at 1609 Monrovia Ave in Costa Mesa, CA. They are the BEST for all framing needs!

Now, having arrived at its destination, "Common Ground" is enjoyed daily by its new owner, her family and friends. One of my great pleasures as a visual artist (and there are many) is bringing a new element of joy into the lives of my clients through the creation of one-of-a-kind imagined narratives.
