Lynne Wintermute Bio

A native Oregonian, I was raised in Portland lived many years in Lake Oswego and now live and work in Pacific City. I have a BFA from Linfield College and did graduate work at the Portland Art Museum School (now PNCA).

In recent years I have studied with Marla Bagetta, Lori Latham, and Lana Grow, Marlana Stoddard–Hays and Ruth Armitage among others. I have a passion for color and for the beautiful Northwest landscape, I also have been inspired by the volunteer work I have done in Thailand, teaching indigenous tribes children art and english.

My work is in Acrylic although I also paint in pastels. I use many layers (150 to 300)of color and the alcohol dissolve method to bring out layers and luminosity from the depth of each painting. I am also experimenting with mixed media using old paintings and rubbings mixed with coins and other objects.

I find color to be a very important aspect to each painting, I am always thinking about the contrast in light and dark found in nature, in sunsets and in the sunrise. I love to use metallic paints, gold leaf and iridescent acrylic to accent the colors of nature.

Painting had brought passion and excitement to my world and allowed me to communicate in a way I never thought possible.
