Historical Context:
Lynne Boezaart has studied with various West Michigan artists, taking classes and workshops whenever she can. In 2012, she joined a group of artists to paint "en plein air," or in the outdoors. While painting outside presents its challenges, such as the weather and insects, Boezaart now paints in plein air almost exclusively. Lynne says,“The things that make plein air painting challenging are the same things that make it so interesting and enjoyable. Brushing the snowflakes from your palette; feeling the heat radiate from the sand on the beach; or having a finch light on your easel – those kind of external elements cannot help but influence the painting in front of you.”
