Painting is a visual language, and so is much of the language of animals. The quiet observation of the natural world, both wild and tame provides endless painting possibilities. No matter the subject, the application of paint to canvas is the easy part.

Understanding anatomy, the nature of light and knowing your materials are only some of the variables one gets to juggle. However, the real challenge for me is the interpretation of what I see. That is the translation from subject to canvas. It is this translation through the artist that makes the difference in painters. Our facts may be the same, but our truths are different.

Lynn Lockhart is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists. She lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with 2 mutts and her husband, painter, Kirk McBride.
They all go exploring together.
