“When I need a break from whatever project I’m working on, I often like to paint small. And I like to paint from memory.
“A small piece painted from memory doesn’t ask for detail. It simply asks for shapes and contours and changes in value.
“For me, as a landscape painter, it asks me to remember impressions, the way I felt in a place. I can invent the color and the way the light moves across these imagined landscapes. Trees grow where I want them to grow and I get to decide what time of day it is.”Lyn Asselta, Saturdays at the Cove, 1 May 2021
