Lynn Cohagan exhibit at Avon library

Special to the DailyArtist Lynn Cohagan sits with one of her paintings, titled "View from Lionshead." Cohagan is exhibiting her paintings in the Avon library's community room this month. The plein-air painter sees the Vail Valley through an artist's lens: "Light and shadow on the mountains, mist hanging in the valley, a crazy tangle of weeds and wildflowers: These are my inspirations as a plein-air painter. I can be covered with bug bites, soggy from an afternoon shower or sweaty with heat, but I am happy if I have captured the nature of my subject matter."
