An example of fine art by Lynne Wirthlin

At a young age Lynne was captivated by artwork in the Little Golden Books. Art became her first love and eventually her career. Lynne considers her extensive background in graphic design and illustration as the foundation for her life today as a fine artist. Before transitioning to a full-time painter, she worked with art directors, editors and nationally known brands, designing and managing product lines for the consumer goods industry.  She also served as an Art Educator for a technical college, all the while freelancing as a children's illustrator being published in several children's magazines.
Inspired by the American Tonalist movement, Lynne's intention is to capture the mood surrounding her subject. She desires her viewers to come away with a feeling, connecting and speaking to them on a personal level. Or maybe bring them to a place they have only been to in their dreams. Like George Inness, Lynne believes it is the artist’s task is to “awaken an emotion from within.”
Born and raised in southern Ohio, the dense woodlands and wide pastoral valleys continually inspire her work. Primarily using oils she is passionate about color and it's harmonies. Whatever she observes, Lynne sees color before anything else. From moment to moment, every color in her sight is the most beautiful color of all. She is especially drawn to the palette of fall and winter contemplations. But she says, “How can you have a favorite color when so many possibilities exist?”
Lynne has recently been published in Southwest Art Magazine, February 2019 issue.
