Sunset from the Breakers

Palm Beach Collection Spring 2024

This vision was absolutely breathtaking when I first met it. I see it less than one might think being in Palm Beach so often these days. But it is as breathtaking as ever. The Mix of colors. The shock of how vast, how close, how powerful that expanse is. What is across it? Who is across it? Is there someone on the other side wondering the same thing?

A perpetual muse, a perpetual sense of wonder for me and my paint brushes: Palm Beach. Each time I visit this island I wonder if its magic will ever wear off on me. It doesn’t. It’s every bit as dazzling as it ever has been. With each iteration of Palm Beach, my perspectives develop, deepen. Each time I arrive in Palm Beach, I turn a corner and see a composition I haven't captured and it drives me to my palette. Some scenes I've painted several times, others are new endeavors – but each is special and delightfully Palm Beach.

Each original painting has been painted on 140 lb French watercolor paper with a variety of high quality pigments that show off the brilliant color of each location. The paper and the pigment come together to give a truly unique artwork. There is only one of each. 

Original approximately 9" x 12"

Original Artwork

Original art is the most valuable; the most sought after; the most desired. At our worst, we have stolen, betrayed, and killed for it. At our best, we have humbly cried before it-and it’s changed our hearts and lives and world view and perspective for the better.

In creating, the artist is imparting herself onto the paper. An artist’s hand in creating the work of art mimics our ultimate creator. In owning the original you’re owning a glimpse of the alpha. Lydia’s artwork is created on French watercolor paper with a variety of high quality pigments and brushes that are all collected in striving to imbue her paintings with a sense of the meaning that sits just beyond our gaze.
