Lynn Boggess grew up on a farm near Parkersburg, WV, where most of his time was spent out of doors. Painting on the site takes him back to the streams and hillsides.……..back in touch with his roots. He paints from nature, in the field, as opposed to working in the studio from photographs, which is how most contemporary landscape artists paint. Many of his canvases are so large that he has to work from a modified scaffold he builds for each painting. He uses 5 different sizes of cement trowel as his brush. He goes out to the backcountry to a spot that moves him, sets up his easel, then camps at the site for several days until his painting is finished. Read more about Lynn Boggess
