I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.

  1. The book page is such a perfect medium, better than a blank canvas or white page. Something comforting too about your sepia pages, like a cup of tea. I like your wise and simple human forms.

  4. A beautiful transition of colors in this one, Lynne. Your book must be beautiful to see already. And why is it that critics aren't actually artists themselves, usually? Opinions are easy to form when one is an outsider, looking in. But not so easy to say when positioned from the front-line with tools in hand.
