About Lynn Donoghue
Today I tried entering "paintings by Lynn Donoghue" in Google,
and found quite a few sites.
Thanks to one of my readers Mic Harper for one link.
When you look at Lynn's portraits, you'll understand why it's
so sad that she died feeling unappreciated. Poverty is a major
factor for Canadian artists -- even widely collected, and well
known artists like Lynn. Her work combined a classic knowledge
of the power of art, with a fresh, new way of looking at portraiture.
Not only that many of her works were large. She once did a
painting of herself with her friends on a billboard. She tried
exciting new ways of using and combining portraits.
She left a 14 year old son behind.
