Bonny Lundy is a Maryland artist and art teacher. Her paintings are included in many private and public collections including the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Council on Aging and GEICO. Bonny has exhibited at Atlantic Gallery, Orchard Gallery, Discoveries Gallery, and Baber Art Gallery as well as in many U.S. juried competitions. Her art is currently on view at Pleasant View Studio in Brookeville, Maryland and her artist site.
Bonny has taught Outdoor Watercolor, Drawing, Painting and Mixed Media for over twenty years through Smithsonian Associates and numerous other groups. She has led painting workshops to Honduras, France, Italy and many U.S. locations. Bonny has also taught drawing, painting and mask making with children.
Studying art at Goddard College and Lake Erie College with Clinton Kuopus, she received her BFA in painting in 1980. She has also studied oil painting with William Swetcharnik, stained glass with Sal Fiorito and ceramics.
Bonny´s unique painting style is both spontaneous and rich, using intuition to describe her visions. She is inspired by the extensive gardens and woodland areas around her studio, by her collections and by life experiences, history and culture. She enjoys travel painting to many diverse places. Among her favorites are the Shenandoah Mountains, Vermont, Cape Cod, Central America, and Europe. Bonny most recently led an outdoor painting workshop to the Bugundy region of France and the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Painting en plein air during these excursions provides an intimate sensory experience. The freshness of these adventures also carries over to her studio work where she pursues still-life painting and other creations.
While Ms. Lundy paints primarily in watercolor, she also enjoys working with oil paint, ink, pastel, glass, batik, beads, and fabric. She has also recently set up a pottery studio. When painting watercolor, Bonny combines washes on dry and wet paper to accomplish interesting value transitions. Through years of experimentation, Bonny has developed her technique of fusing pigments, creating the appearance of movement even when the painting has dried. This is entertaining to witness, always bringing new surprises and leading to the next inspiration.
