In the late 1990s, Lynne Easterbrook found herself restricted to the living-room sofa of her home in the mountains of Colorado for several months. Her leg was strapped in a therapy device as a result of a horse accident. At her doctor’s suggestion to find a safer hobby, she taught herself to draw and paint. “Thanks to the Pikes Peak library system,” she says, “I studied under the world’s finest artists–tuition free!”
At the time, she worked as a tech writer/editor in Colorado Springs. She studied art and painted during weekends and holidays, and she exhibited at the Business of Art Center in Manitou Springs, the Cliff Dwellings Museum in Manitou Springs, Florissant Heritage Days, Martin’s Gallery of the West in Old Colorado City, Jeanne-Marie’s Villa, and the TRW Corporate Gallery in Colorado Springs.
Lynne moved to the Denver area in 2004 and attended workshops and classes on learning to paint by seeing color and doing the exercises developed by Henry Hensche. Her teacher was Hensche’s student, Chuck Ceraso of Lafayette, CO. She attended one of Ceraso’s week-long plein air seminars at Ghost Ranch, NM, which she terms “a life-changing experience.”
Lynne’s artistic goal is to follow the teachings of Hensche and Ceraso, and to strive with every painting to capture the illusions of light and three-dimensionality that endow their works with what she calls, “heart-touching beauty.”
