Upon request, I continue painting eyes for homes and businesses. That's a funny statement, but who doesn't want their eyeball painted. This is Grace's beautiful eye and she's at the new Love and Warden Eye Care Center
On Mother's Day 2019 I told my first-born grandson to sit in my flower bed, and smile. I took his picture, then painted his portrait for his mother.
My favorite DIL took a picture of her daughter a couple of years ago. I always loved the image and decided to paint her portrait for her dad.
My framer has been unable to frame up any of my new fused pieces, so I decided to enter a couple of paintings. This one I've been working on and off for the past four years. Oil on canvas. "The Siblings" Merit Winner.
The USbank Celebration of the Arts held at the Kentucky Museum awarded Best of Show and 1st Place in Ceramics and Glass for "Compressed." I was so surprised with my Win-Win. Great motivation - I'm back in the studio to focus on new work.
I continually reach back to my stained glass roots and keep clients happy with custom windows for their homes and businesses. Beveled hummingbird with hibiscus.
1ST PLACE - “Billy”
Awards were presented on August 26. No glass category for me so I entered one of my oil paintings titled "Billy" and won 1st place in the painting category. Head butts all around! "Billy" is living in Tennessee now.
From all around the country, 223 entries were submitted. Only 30 were excepted, so I was thrilled to get two of my favorite pieces juried into the show - "Genesis" and "Heliocentric."
”Genesis” sold during this show and lives NE Kentucky.
1ST PLACE - “Quarks I”
This regional exhibition hosted by the local art guild brought in some really nice paintings and sculptures by artists from Tennessee and Kentucky. "Quarks I" sold and lives in Ohio.

Originally from Wyoming, Lynette currently resides in Bowling Green, Kentucky. She has worked in the art glass industry over 25 years and has created stained glass windows for homes, libraries, museums and churches. During this time Lynette began fusing glass, creating functional and sculptural art glass pieces. Her art has received numerous awards from local and regional juried exhibitions. Lynette signs her art "Nett" a childhood nickname. (Picture of Lynette curtesy of Burning Man 2016)
As a contemporary abstract glass artist, I create designs that evoke nature and intimate galactic objects, heat, and motion. I layer thin silver, glass powders, and frit onto reactive glass or onto glass that is sulfur/selenium bearing. An intricate fusing process is used to coalesce silver and the reactive glass in a high-firing kiln. This creates a variety of interesting reactions, such as streaks and halos that are subtle or dramatic, colorful or dark, and each will produce an intriguing and unique design. My focus toward graphic and galactical wanderlust initiated my current series “Halos.” (Image, "Quasars II" 19")
