“New Beginnings” Paintings by John Lambie
I started my creative journey painting in 2013 while living in Scotland. My process is varied, but I either work from an inspiring vision I see and photograph (often a combination of several visions accumulated over time), or I work from a passion about mixing paints and colors that eventually takes me by the hand to the paintings desired destination. I am a slave to deeply pigmented colors and the emotions that they inspire in me. I paint abstracts… and representational images that take on a feeling of abstracts. I have a very optimistic outlook on life that comes through almost all of my work, even titles that sound a bit dark are of paintings that bring hopeful optimism. I live in Ashland because of my love of the Oregon Cabaret Theatre…my other home.
