For a decade, from the time I was two years old, we had a home with three-generations: my father's aunt lived with us. Auntie May had been a Latin teacher (she was born in 1878 and had a college degree; really uncommon) and she used to tell me the Greek and Roman myths but, even better, she was an artist and worked primarily in water color. I remember going out in the backyard with her while she painted. Auntie May would look at my childish drawings and delight over them so I was encouraged from early days and was an art major in school. It wasn't until college when I took a water color class that I really appreciated just what a fine artist she was.

There's some of my artwork on this page but, even better, there are links to pages for some of my artist friends.

River Leaves by Lynn Maudlin

         River Leaves
I painted this as a young married woman, trying to make sense of my married name... the painting has lived in my son's home for many years but he recently sent me a digital photo - thanks, Shannon!

This is one of my favorite Sue Dawe paintings: it's called "Wings" and I actually own the original - I wake every morning to look at this beautiful oil painting.

I grew up with Vytas Sakalas; he was one of the Lithuanian kids I hung out with in high school. Besides being a fine drummer and a dear, entertaining soul, he's a brilliant artist. Really, seriously fine artist.

Patrick Wynne

         Melkor and Ungoliantë
         by Patrick Wynne
I first met Patrick at a Mythcon in the mid 1980s; he hasn't changed. I figure there's an horrific portrait in his attic. In addition to his brilliance with a pen, Pat has a wacky, wicked sense of humor.

Clay in the Potter's Hands companion calendar 2011

January 2011
by Lynn Maudlin
I had the pleasure of assisting my good friend Diana Glyer with the layout and design of her most recent book, Clay in the Potter's Hands and create a companion calendar for 2010... and later 2011. Now we're up to 2016! This is the image for January of 2011, a digital collage created from a photo of Diana's hands taken by her nephew Adam Bradley and various other elements, pushed around and manipulated; it makes me happy.

October Calendar
         Rejected October
         by Lynn Maudlin
In working on the 2010 calendar for Diana Glyer's book, Clay in the Potter's Hands, I created this image for October, of which I am rather fond. But it evoked fearful sensations in the Glyer household so I went with a more tame approach. Still, I like this, the evocation of fire & season (after all, the photograph is of a kiln with pots stacked inside) and orange pumpkins...
