Artist's comment:
Please note that they posed me coloring sheet music with a white crayon.
No wonder I didn't pursue art until I was 40.
Born in Washington, D.C. in 1950, and raised in Maryland's hunt country, Lynn Wade was a professional horsewoman for over 20 years before becoming a full-time artist. Her knowledge of horses is extensive: She served in the hunt field as a Whipper-In, managed boarding facilities on both coasts, showed hunter/jumpers from age six, 'ponied' race horses at Santa Anita, taught 150 riding students per week and broke yearlings at a Florida Thoroughbred farm. She was co-owner/creator of the official dressage saddle of the 1984 British Olympic Team and has had over a dozen articles published in such worldwide equine magazines as Polo and Equus.
Having always drawn animals, at age 40 Lynn picked up a paint brush for the first time and spent the next several years teaching herself to paint, supporting herself by doing animal portraits. For the first 20 years of this new career, equine art dominated her gallery work until a move in 2012, to the seabird abundant west coast of Florida, prompted an addition to her subject matter. Lynn's avian art has become recognized and been honored with inclusion in such prestigious shows as Birds in Art and Oil Painters of America and finalist wins in The Artist's Magazine Annual competition, their "Over 60" competition and Southwest Art's Artistic Excellence competition.
Lynn has taught painting at the Taos Art School and the American Academy of Equine Art where she also won a Masterwork award. She authored and contributed artwork to the book, "The AAEA Sketchbook of Horses" published by Equus magazine. Her magazine illustrations have garnered five nominations for Best Drawing of the Year (the American Horse Publications Awards). Lynn's work has also been featured in such national magazines [...]
