Inspiration and good friend Lynn Boggess was recently featured in Blue Review's "8 Artists Who Are Absolutely Fearless". Of Boggess and his work the site says:
Do not be fooled by the seemingly effortless application of paint in Lynn Boggess’ landscapes — this is an artist who is seriously disciplined about his methods. Before placing a single mark on his canvas, Boggess constructs his workspace, a process which can involve erecting a full canopied platform to provide a level surface where he can comfortably paint among the rocks and streams he favors. Using a cement trowel in lieu of a palette knife, Boggess lays down lush, decisive marks with the same efficiency in which he prepared his station. Beyond his sumptuous treatment of the paint, where Boggess truly excels is in his application of color. There he proves a reliably deft observer, leaving viewers in awe of his precision and a visceral feel of his surroundings.
