Every month the Chapin Chamber of Commerce recognizes one of Crooked Creek Art League's artists as the Chamber Spotlight Artist of the Month. Congratulations to Lytha Nicholson as the December Spotlight Artist. Lytha is an active member of Crooked Creek Art League, and we thank her for sharing her art with us and the community.
See her painting in person at the Chamber if you get a chance!
About the Artwork
As I child, I learned to swim in community pools. It was years before I felt the joy and beauty of the seas and lakes. However, my heart stays connected to the beautiful turquoise of pools which I try to describe in my paintings.

The exhilaration of creating large scale acrylic paintings that are colorful, loose, and lively is simply addictive! I lose myself in the process. The images are rendered in a spontaneous, impressionistic way, often revealing an inherent rhythm. Sources of my inspiration include places I have seen during my travels, experiences I have had, and people I have met. I have a true appreciation for the beauty that can be discovered almost anywhere. My particular interests are color, patterns, and rhythm which can be found in both people and nature. Through "art". . . I am able to express these things. And through “teaching". . . I am able to help students find the creativity within themselves.
