"Color is just delicious, it is my world, it starts everything going. I spread it on my palette and I feel my creative juices flowing, it lights my life" --Lynn Glenn

In my study and joyful exploration of Abstract Art, I focus on color, texture, line and shape. I utilize these elements as they develop their own life in my paintings and lead me to incredible,wonderful discoveries. In my figurative paintings  it is much the same. I use those same elements of color, texture, line and shape to express the feelings evoked by the model's presence.
