Lyndy Lovelady, a local native artist will exhibit a series of
illustrations themed “Water”. Her focus is to share ocean, river and
lake-scapes as a way to engage others in the creative process.
Lovelady recently published a coloring book called “Impressions of
Southern Utah” to encourage people of any age to color. “Water is
usually on the move. I find it an intriguing challenge to capture the
energy of water at any given moment in time. The landscape around us
becomes easier to interpret when simplified into layers or shapes,
this technique is simplified in the coloring book.”
Lyndy’s artistic expression pours from the magnificent energy of
water, using vibrant blends of Prismacolor pencil to portray its power
and its symbolism in life. Nature is the real theme of each piece.
Water is the star. Water is a gift from mother Earth and a source of
all life. The color and content is vivid and vibrant so the viewer may
feel good inside; like a kiss, a storm, a dance, or a sweet dream,
water reflects a moment. Lovelady’s images of water were recently
featured at the Oasis Café and at the new Central Gallery on 228 East
and 500 South for its Grand Opening this summer. She adds several
unseen fresh new pieces to this collection of works.
The waterscapes are depicted from areas such as Lake Powell, Crack
Canyon, Bluff, high Unitas, Coasts of California, Florida and Kauai,
Hawaii. Prior to creating this body of work, Lyndy’s freelance
graphics business “Artmind Graphics” had her concentrating on a large
project for a local psychic. After creating a deck of 78 full color
Tarot Card Illustrations and the instruction book, “Tarot the Ancient
Translation Tool”, she was able to begin the Water series. Lyndy is
currently creating custom illustrations for other local book authors
such as Murrell Martin’s children’s story “Squeaky’s Christmas Cheese”
and a vintage sailing sea adventure novel cover for Theda Bassett.
