Frances Lynn painting en plein air
 
Frances A. Lynn (b.1950)
 

Frances Lynn is an award-winning oil painter who grew up in West Palm and has lived and worked throughout the U.S.   After a successful corporate career, she began her study of art and painting.   Her passion is to paint on location, en plein air.

"I'm fascinated by the constant change in what we consider our secure and familiar environment.  I hope to capture the energy and essence of what appears right now, particularly those everyday scenes that are so much a part of our lives and that we take for granted until they disappear.  Painting from direct observation is to me the most real and honest way to live in that moment."
