Growing up on a lake in rural southeast Wisconsin in the ’50s, Lynn Rix has always loved the invigorating experience of painting the constantly changing wonders of the world around her. She finds painting outdoors far more inspiring and invigorating than painting in the studio, a large reason why the artist is primarily a plein air painter. “The smells, the sounds, the images, the feelings of wind or sun or humidity or cold on my skin; I am using four of my five senses while painting. When I am standing in front of my canvas, the rest of the world goes away,” says Rix.
She continues, “Wisconsin’s four unique seasons give me endless inspiration. Spring and summer when the fields are full of life, the gardens are in full bloom and the warmth of the sun makes me feel alive with the paintbrush…Autumn when Wisconsin dons its coat of bright reds, oranges and yellows…And winters, my absolute favorite.”
Rix is a member of the following arts organizations: American Impressionists Society, League of Milwaukee Artists, Cedarburg Artists Guild, Oil Painters of America and Wisconsin Plein Air Painters Association. She has an upcoming show, the Covered Bridge Art Studio Tour, held by Cedarburg Artists Guild from October 9 to 11. —
