Nurture by Lynne Hoppe
Lynne Hoppe's work is so delightful, whimsical and her color palette is soothing to look at. I'm a big fan so you can imagine how excited I was when I nabbed this small painting by her. It was my Christmas present to myself. This one was coated with beeswax and had the added bonus of bees humming through the imagery. A face, wax, and bees--perfect!
Lynne is a very generous artist who often shares her techniques and the sources for her materials. I have to admit, I have purchased quite a few of her time tested wares. She has tutorials on her blog, including this one on how she paints faces. Here is the little tag that came with my painting. Edgar is so sweet.
Here are a few of Lynne's latest paintings from her recent blog post. It will be your visual treat for the day.
I framed Nurture on the inside cover of a very old book. It proudly hangs on my wall with my other treasures.
Thanks, Lynne. XOXO
