Artist Lynn Zwern 

Lynn Zwern is a local painter that 'is not very good at following the rules.' Instead, she likes to tap into her intuition and paint with total artistic freedom. “My greatest joy in painting is the use of vibrant, rich colors," she writes. “Painting in an abstract, impressionistic way allows the viewer to become involved in my paintings. The more you look at my paintings, the more you see.”

Artists Linda Wells & Albert Handell

"We would like to invite the public to our studio/gallery," writes Linda Wells. "It is an opportunity to see how two artists create in their own space in that home. Some of you have seen Albert and I painting along the Hamilton Greenbelt and City Park. Several of those Plein air paintings will be available. We work in both oils and pastels. If you would like to see artwork in person instead of just online, I encourage you to come by, visit with us for a while and get to know your local artists. Long time Lakeway resident/artist Linda Wells,, and World renowned Master Artists Albert Handell,"
