Lynda Wheelock

I paint because it gives me great happiness, and because I love the challenges painting presents.   My favorite medium at present is watercolor.  I like the risks and unpredictable character of watercolor.  I love conveying emotion through painting, a kind of personal communication with the viewer.  Some artists who have inspired me are Pierre Bonnard and Paul Gaughin, through their amazing use of color.   Living artists who have influenced me have been many, including some great friends and mentors.    My art is a journey with no destination.  One of my favorite quotes is by T.S. Eliot who said,  “And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
