“Journeys of the Heart” Paintings by John Lambie
Journeys of the Heart
This showing represents the last 4 years of my journey into painting. The subject of my paintings are varied and include landscapes (such as Highland Sunset, Big Moon Over Skye, Camo Aspen, or Dessert Heat), personal experiences such as my responses to my son’s passing during this time (Contemplating the Universe, and Passing Over), and abstracts that capture emotional responses as well (Tiffany Glass, Father and Son, Crystal Cave). In this art form, emotion is expressed by me through the use of deep and dramatic color. As with my life, my journey focuses on the positive, and dwells in hope, even in a piece entitled Scar Tissue. My goal is for each viewer to experience an emotional response of their own. Of course, the secondary goal of all artists, is for the viewer to want to have that emotional response every time they view the painting in their own home.
