LYN ST. CLAIR
If you're knowledgeable about the field of wildlife art, you're certainly familiar with Lyn St. Clair, the creator of the above coots and many other wonderful pieces. Not only is she a skilled, prolific and creative painter, she's a fine naturalist that's smart as a whip, with an eagle eye. Lyn was recently diagnosed with breast cancer—ironic indeed, as she dedicated the better part of 1993 to a project she called 48 x 48, a fund raiser for cancer research. Now it's time for her to raise some funds of her own, to cover the expenses of surgery, hospitalization and therapy for her uninsured self. With that in mind, Lyn's friend and colleague Paula Waterman has set up an art web page dedicated to helping defray Lyn's medical expenses. There you'll find for sale numerous excellent artworks by numerous first-rate artists, many of them substantially discounted (my own piece, Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk & Western Rattlesnake [below], has been cut by more than half). Check back often, the site will be updated as more work is added.
