I hail from California and my two loves are buying bulbs and shoes with flowers on them.” Mary Lyn Gough
About the artist:
Like any artist, as a child, I started by painting on the walls.
I sold my first painting in 7th grade. Won 1st prize in the County Fair 5 times in a row. Creating a balance of right & left-brain hemispheres, I collected a few college degrees. I received income in my college years by selling art. MLG
Art is a luxury we all can afford. I have the experience of witnessing people find the right artwork. Being both a maker and seller of art- I worked at LaHina Gallery in San Francisco. You can tell when someone falls in love with a piece by their expression, body language. Somehow helping them and sharing in that experience of discovery – that Ahaa moment- was compelling. MLG
“Watercolors have the transparency of oils and a vibrancy of acrylics with the beguiling nature of water. Painting with watercolors is an attempt to control the uncontrollable.” MLG
You can teach the basics of structure, the technique of any art process, however, to access the 7th element within cannot be taught. It comes from your soul or intestines, depending on the day.
It is like Picasso, who during his Blue Period, mastered techniques which allowed him to break all the rules and create Cubism.” MLG

“Truly, artists lose themselves in their work revealing the world that exists in the imagination, transcending grace through the muse of nature.” FH&G
