Linda Lyons

MarbleHead Festival of Arts Painting Exhibition  through July 4th, at Abbot Hall, in Old Marblehead (Shown: Gerry's Poppies, 12" x 12," oil on board, by Linda R. Lyons Price: $975. Honorable Mention: 2016 Festival)

Judges Commentary: "This piece is an eye-catcher, one that stands alone amidst the muted browns, grays, and blues of ocean scenes and distant landscapes. There is a bold use of paint, a specific point of view, and an everyday subject matter handled in a fresh and carefree way. It almost seems too easy at first, small and hurried, until upon further inspection you see the push and pull of translucence and opacity, the power of the cool, opaque greenery in the background, the fiery burn of flowers in the fore."
