What do I love about it? I love the possibilities of a few new paint tubes, a handful of suitable brushes, a blank canvas, and the glimmer of what I hope might be a promising idea. Of course, then comes the hard work, all the decisions. Pale or dark? Thick or thin? Loose or tight? Flat or dimensional? Edges? Patterns? Lines? Textures? Shadows? Each painting is the accumulated result of a thousand decisions. What is my process? Don’t ask me; I only know that I love being up to my elbows in it.

I work in layers, adding paint, scraping off, and often mixing the colors directly on the canvas. Being extremely tactile, I often paint with my bare hands. I simplify more and more. So much clutter and noise surrounds us – I can breathe by paring down to the bare essentials. The spaces in between…where nothing happens, are almost more important. It puts the rest into perspective. I am working towards my paintings being a mental pause for the viewer. If I suggest half the story, the rest is up to them. I spend a lot of time meditating. Therefore, approaching the same subject repeatedly becomes like a meditative process. I always try to get closer to the subject’s essence or soul.

Involved in fine arts and fine crafts for the past 25 years, Lyn Asselta has an extensive background. However, she opened an old box of Grumbacher pastels at one point and never looked back. While pondering what inspires her, she found images of fields of Queen Anne’s Lace and old farmhouses on hills, waves crashing against rock and fog obscuring shorelines, the sun setting over golden marshes and silhouetting ancient oaks, mist on the distant hills in the morning were living in her memory with a sense of timelessness and endless possibilities. She has always found herself drawn to locations with a rugged, solitary strength, untold stories, and places where she can lose herself in the nature surrounding her. Pastel, as a medium, seems to be a perfect metaphor for her relationship to these landscapes… vibrant, expressive, exuberant, and tactile, pastel allows Lyn to hold a piece of the essence of the wild of color in her hand and to cap untouched beauty she finds in the world.
