We Asked The Artists @ Somerset Place

Hello Everyone
Another instalment of “We Asked The Artists” has been posted on the Stampington & co Blog, Somerset Place.
Not only was it an honour to be part of this it was also interesting to ponder upon the answers for each individual question posed to me (and obviously the others).  For my response to this particular question I knew that I had to give a nod to all of the lovely friends of my Blog, who have been incredibly loyal to me.  In recent times my style has taken a slightly different direction as I ink up stamps which I might have otherwise overlooked and also dabbling with colour.  So many of you could have easily abandoned me at this time but no, you continue to be there as a wonderful source of support and encouragement.  It was actually so many of you who allowed me to take that step. Back when I was on the DT for Gecko Galz and the commitments that entailed, I created this canvas, HERE. To be honest, at the time I did not care for the result, it was more a matter of being relieved that I had created a project in time for the deadline. The feedback I received bowled me over, I was completely shocked and it stopped me in my tracks. It was almost as though your words gave me permission to step outwith my comfort zone. I can say that you gave me a gift, without you realising it. I will always be a vintage, shabby style of girl at heart but it has been freeing to simply find the unadulterated fun of playing once again.

The image they have shown beside my response features Oxford Impressions stamp, The Reader, from the Soul of the Rose set (pen stamp also Oxford Impressions) available from Oxford Impressions and That’s Crafty.  It features in this original post from when it was published in Somerset Studio Gallery.
the-readerlynnemoncrieffThank You for your visit to this post. If you want to read my response to Somerset Place’s question then you can read it HERE along with the responses from artists such as Renee Zarate, Septh Apter, Sandra Evertson and many more.

Oh, by the way.  The canvas created for Gecko Galz which I didn’t really like, I sort of viewed it differently after it was published in Somerset Studio Gallery!!!

    Lovely canvas, Lynne. I love all that you create and have created, whether it be vintage and shabby or experimenting with colour. What I like most about your work is that, whatever you do, you put imagination to forefront. I love that. xxx

    Hugs to you Lynne! I have loved the courage you have shown over the years that allows you to continue to push that creative envelope. Look how far you have come and are at this point really picking up steam. Don’t let anyone get in your way ever. Just enjoy the ride. Hugs!

    I enjoy your art very much. I was stunned by that butterfly girl you made, I sent it to my daughter and she loved it, too. I also like your vintage, neutral color artwork. Sometimes people are threatened by other’s success. That is their problem, not yours. I am glad you kept submitting your art for publication.

    These ‘Ask the Artists’ features are really fun and I’m so glad that you are a part of this Q&A series, Lynne 🙂 🙂 I’m going back to the links you’ve provided and find that these are postings of yours that I missed last year when I was down in Northern California caring for my Mom, so I’m really glad that you’re sharing some of these postings from last year! Happy Weekend!! XOXO-Shari

    As you know, I love all that you create wether it is in your previous style like on this delicate canvas (it well deserves the spotlight on Somerset Place, you can be sure of that!), or in your present style with more colours and paints in the background (with so lovely results each time!!), or I’m already sure, in the future direction your steps and great talent will lead you my dear Lynne… I love your art, and that’s good to see you so honoured. Hope you were doing well this week-end, Hugs, Coco xxx
