From the Catskill Mountains: BPAC Artist-in-Residence Entry June 2, 2013

Sunday, June 2, 2013

Throughout her year as Burchfield artist-in-residence, Janelle Lynch will share her thoughts and impressions with us as we share her journey into the spirit and work of Charles Burchfield.


Irises blossoming. Rain, thunder, sun. I am SEEING again. Deep in the woods, all is new, but even in my back yard I'm drawn to the weeds growing around the base of the apple trees. Themes are beginning to emerge, though I am hesitant to name them and make them too consciousness. My intuitive approach to picture-making prevails.

- Janelle Lynch
