Visit to Lynda Lowe's Studio

I and two artist friends, Alison Lewis-Harlow and Robbi Firestone, had the good fortune to visit the studio of the artist Lynda Lowe. I was initially introduced to Lynda's work by gallery owner Patricia Rovzar, and was immediately drawn to the depth of color, the skilled craftsmanship, and the intensity of meaning as eye and mind are taken deep into the painting, and then brought back to the surface with finesse.
The studio is in a stunning location, up a beautifully landscaped path on the top of a small hillside, with a spectacular view of the water and wildlife of puget sound. Once inside, I felt immediately at home. Lynda is a gracious host, and she brings so much of herself into her work. The space is full of precious objects of inspiration -- rocks, shells, bones, books, brushes -- all things discovered on her many travels.
I hope you have the great pleasure of seeing her work in person. In the meantime, you can visit Lynda and her work on her Web site: www.lyndalowe.com
