Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 10 Art Competition
Lynn Chatman – Coldspring, TX
The versatility of acrylics inspires me to explore its many techniques and avenues of expression. Much of my work explores and pushes the boundaries of abstract experimentation. Most of the time I don’t know where I’m going at the beginning of a painting until I put something on canvas or paper. Whether it’s color or texture, I let intuition guide me until I see something I like, then I expand on it. Sometimes I focus on ways to express the different “seasons” in the circle of life by using symbolism, texture and color; thus, the symbolism I find in candles, dragonflies, ravens, rust, etc.
