Lynne Schulte has hung several solo exhibits in Kansas, Washington DC, Vermont, New York, Maine, and Massachusetts. Primary among her themes are moving water images stirred by the rocky shores of Maine and Appalachian trail streams; floral works inspired by her gardens, roadsides, and winter florist gleanings; and landscapes of Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts. One notable series was a “Year in Bloom” when she produced 365 smaller paintings of flowers in oil and watercolor, followed by “Fresh Bloom”, consisting of 15 larger works. She currently moves between Vermont, Maine, and Cape Ann, Massachusetts for the majority of her landscape images, which are completed primarily on-site. Additional work is done in the studio when she cannot get outside. Lynne’s primary media is oil with occasional forays into watercolor, pastel, mixed media and monotypes. Her true subject is color and light and life metaphor. Her moving waters reflect the changes at an intense time in her life; the florals, particularly “Year in Bloom”, are a response to the joys of a second marriage; Her coastal sunrise series captures endless skies over seas as she adjusted to the joys of retirement and being an artist full time, finally….and her recent work on “Remembrance – Pink Chair Project” is a love story for her Mother, painted after her passing. Lynne says; “My art knows where I’m going, and it always gets there first!”

Lynne is currently painting for her next exhibit on the working waterfront, which is planned for the North Shore Art Association in October 2014. Contact Lynne to be put on her newsletter list for updates, or sign up on the links and info page. lynne@lynneschulte.com
