Capturing the Light, Painting and Jewelry

For Robert Yelland painting and making jewelry have given his life meaning. He finds a connection to nature through painting and enjoys interacting with people interested in his jewelry. He likes challenging himself with new techniques and methods in both mediums.

Painting by Lynne Whiting RobertsonLynne Whiting Robertson
By working directly in the midst of her surroundings Lynne hopes to capture the natural changing light, the beauty, and the essence of each unique setting. It has been a wonderful rediscovery to paint with oils again. She is thrilled to be using this luscious medium and to be doing it out in the natural world that she cherishes. These paintings are a way of sharing with you her profound love of our amazing environment that inspires and enriches life.

Also featuring Bill Koerlin, who started his art journey in 2000. He works in a variety of different mediums, but has stuck with mixed media the last 10 years using natural plant life.
