Inspiration

I am inspired by trying to understand things that I have not understood. The unknown inspires me. Confusion and displacement and new perspectives– new ways of thinking inspire me. I am inspired by everything  that demands that I slow down and face all that I don’t know. Nothing is more intriguing to me than trying to figure some thing out.

Painting is always facing the unknown. There are always so many questions. Every brushstroke, every scribble is kind of question.

Then of course there is the inspiration I get from looking at the works of great painters and writers whose work is so masterful that it allows me to get swept away. Or I read a line by a great writer in a book and it inspires me to imagine the scene that is described– and in that imagined place, I find another place, a completely different place, where my own stories live.

And when I look at the work of other artists I feel invited into a world where new worlds are born. It becomes like a conversation somehow in the language of imagination, where one artist speaks and I am listening.

Art frames the world for us and opens doors in our minds that ignite cognitive fires.

Quantum relationships

Glimpse of another world

Fairy worlds under our feet. Tread lightly

Lynna G

My name is Lynna Goldhar Smith, or Lynna-G for short. I am a multi-disciplinary artist--I draw, paint, write, and direct live theatre whenever I can. I believe in filling my life with as much creative expression as possible and I encourage others to do the same. I am often told that I do art in too many ways to be sensible but it's just the way I roll.
