MARY LYN GOUGH
I am an enthusiastic gardener and Mother Nature is full of amazing textures, colors, shapes and patterns. I have always been drawn especially to the complexities, beauty,
and specificity of flowers. No two are alike, even from the same variety. They are my subject and inspiration.
I aim to capture an immersive experience in each painting that envelops the viewer in my work, my vision of the blooms, the secrets they have to share. So real, they’re unreal, the work compels you to reach for a touch, or lean in for the scent of the bloom.
I work in watercolors to gain the transparency of oils and vibrancy of acrylics and the beguiling nature of water; an attempt to control the uncontrollable. The combination is a
viewing intimacy; my pieces are luscious, inviting and vibrant.
