Thinking of my American followers and other friends

I watched the USA election results unfold and felt sad at the outcome. I know that everyone who voted, voted with their hearts and minds  in the way they wanted. But I fear for the moral compass of America now in the hands of people who seem to only consider material things as important and appear to have little regard for women, other races and the rest of the world. The “I” appears more important to them than the good of all.

So for the first time I woke up and decided to paint out my feelings onto canvas.I took an old brightly coloured early attempt and covered it up and let my feelings direct me.This is my tribute to you all, I have left some splashes of colour peaking out  as I know they will be there as the silver linings in the dark cloud.

My thoughts are with you all at this turbulent time

    Oh, Lynne, thank you, thank you. Your words combined with your art soothed my troubled soul, eased my worries, helped me realize America has found its way before when things seem dark. In my mind, the impossible happened, and now my uneasy nation must try to figure out why. Knowing good folks like you are concerned and care about us will help. I love your painting and admire your talent..

    This is a wonderful painting. I’ve never paid a lot of attention to politics but the last few years between here, the UK and the US it’s now a part of my life I cannot ignore. I worry for the future but then I see something so beautiful, your painting, come out of something so unsettling and I feel hope
