Bonny Lundy

My life has been centered around art and nature.  As a child I water-colored imaginary underwater and mountain scenes.  Years of ceramics, batik and other mediums followed.  A deep love for Vermont and plein air painting began in 1976 at Goddard College.  I brieflyBonny Lundy 8x10 72 dpi studied art therapy and graduated with a BFA in painting from Lake Erie College in 1980.  Independent experimentation, exhibitions and teaching art have been ongoing since then.

Soon after moving to the Washington, DC area, I began teaching watercolor at Glen Echo Park.   Other teaching venues have included Washington Artworks, Smithsonian Associates, Frederick Community College, the Delaplaine Art Center and other Washington area groups.

I have juried exhibitions, presented art talks, demonstrations and critiques.  Leading workshops to Honduras, Italy, France, New Mexico, Lewes Delaware, the Shenandoah Mountains and many other beautiful locations has been fulfilling.

Currently, Pleasant View Studio in Brookeville, Maryland is my creative home.  The land that surround this peaceful place provide great inspiration for expressive watercolor and oil landscapes, nature close ups, figure, and still life.  As often as possible I paint and draw outside, studying form and color in shifting light.

My art is included in many private and public collections.  Experiences in nature are conveyed through watercolor fusing and flowing, impressionistic brushstrokes.  Emotions while painting are expressed through texture, movement and contrast.  There is a great joy in sharing this richness. Winter and Autumn woodlands, streams and mountains are especially attractive.  Plants embody color energy and elegant shapes, a poignant display of the life cycle, which fuels my intuitive creations.

Abstract experimentation with water patterns has recently become important.  I look forward to many more days of discovery.
