June 23 to June 29
As a graphic designer, Lynn Ericson spent years capturing the essence of a product or service and communicating that message with immediacy. She has traded designing logos and advertising campaigns on the computer for acrylic paint, but the goal of her painting is very much the same: capturing the essence and making a connection.
She attempts to communicate the feeling of a scene that captures her attention. She is struck by the blueness of a coastal cove, the liveliness of a field of flowers or the intensity of a sky. Often it’s the memory of a color combination or the strong composition in a landscape that first attracts her.
Though she starts with photos, the painting takes on a life of its own, and the variety of the Maine seasons and the lushness of the French landscape are endless sources of inspiration. Lynn has a B.A. degree in English Literature from the University of Maine and an M.F.A from Rochester Institute of Technology. She lives in Hollis, Maine.
