ANNE LINCOLN: SUNLIT
April 1 - 30, 2016
Reception: Friday, April 8, 6-9 PM

Light is my focus. I am primarily a landscape painter.  Working in oils, I enjoy the sensual quality of a brushstroke and feel drawn to the color harmonies found in nature. While I enjoy painting locally--from the Yolo Bypass and the wine country to the California Coast--I am always on the alert for new ideas.

I prefer to start a painting with the sky; it sets the mood and is the part I most enjoy.  Painting from an emotional reaction to a particular scene is both freeing and exciting. In Touch of Spring, I was drawn to the sense of expectation that comes with the dappled light and fresh colors of spring. Around our valley location I have found that wonderful sense of scale and space; it is always inspirational with light that varies from a subtle glow to an enveloping warmth.

Although I may paint from direct observation, I often paint from memories--either experienced or imagined. Shutting my eyes, I let the images appear, recalling the temperature, the scent of the air, and the emotions I felt when I did a quick sketch or took a photo.

I am more interested in capturing a sense of the light and atmosphere than in the specifics of the site. I always want my paintings to be less about a precise location, and more about an imaginary place I have travelled to inwardly; then the viewer can make it their own.
