On this beautiful spring day in NYC, I wanted to share the work of
Rene Lynch -- paintings of young women on the brink of womanhood…the magic and mystery of the forest, the awakening of the natural world into spring and summer. Here’s to curiosity, coming of age, getting outside and day dreaming…

His Shadow ". watercolor on paper. 24 x 18". 2007
“These watercolors are inspired from direct relations with summer. I have a backyard garden in Brooklyn and like a haiku I am responding to the season (summer) and the tiny dramas of insects, and frogs. My title Wonderland directly refers to that sensual dreamworld which connects one to the deeper universe of nature, both psychological and physical. It is where children live and where adults visit.”
