Behind the Muse: with Lynn Lough

Lynn Lough is new to Art Lotto this year and we are so excited to have her creative energy on board! Lynn is in the first stages of portrait planning and to her, it’s more than putting a face on a canvas. Here’s a little glimpse into the mind of Lynn Lough:

Lynn Lough Luck of the Draw
Lynn reads the name Rhoda Miller from a lotto ball at The Luck of the Draw event in March at The Blue Nile.

“I’m creating a portrait of Rhoda Miller for Art Lotto.  As an artist who approaches my work in a very expressionist manner it’s extremely important for me to know my subject on a emotional level.  I met Rhoda for the first time at Art Lotto’s Luck of the Draw.  I snapped a few photo’s of her then and immediately became enthralled with her eyes, which are amazing!  But, pondering how I was going to get even a glimpse into her “soul” in such a sort time seemed a bit daunting.  As the “luck of the draw” would have it, last week I was able to attend her art opening at the Joshua Wilton House (It’s a great show and is up through June). Getting to see Rhoda’s work was very inspring and informative and gave me insight as to how I want to portray her. After all, there are few better ways to know an artitst then through her work!  Rhoda gave me permission to photograph her work at the opening and I immediately came home and started playing with the images. Here’s a little teaser video I made for inspiration…who know where this will lead!   I guess we will all find out in the weeks to come!  Cheers!” ~Lynn
