  Sporner's Pond
Pontzer,Lynda-D. at age 15
D. at age 15 / Painting Oil / 28x32 inches / 2600 USD

Description: A painting from life of a girl at age 15. There is much symbolism throughout the painting. It is an age of discovery and questioning and doors will open and close as she progresses from childhood to adulthood. Her expression, is she looking at you or past you, or just what is she thinking, leads to the intrigue of this particular painting. This is an oil on masonite panel and is beautifully mounted in a black and gold frame.

Lynda Pontzer

Biography
Born and raised in the verdant countryside and forests of western Pennsylvania, USA, Lynda has been painting and drawing the local people and landscapes since she got her first set of oils at age 13. By age 16, she was accepting commissions for portraits and landscapes. Lynda grew up in a period of "abstract" art but she never deviated from her goal of being one of the best portrait artists. Pontzer excels at painting portraits from life with a vibrancy and immediacy which is normally lacking in photographs. However, photographs are used when the live model or landscape on location is not possible. Lynda's extensive practice of working from life enables her to breathe "life" into the most mundane of photographs. Lynda attended the University of Pennsylvania, Mercyhurst College, Cleveland Institute of Art, and received her Masters in Art and History from the University of Arizona. She broadened her education by living abroad in Scotland, Iran, and Denmark. While in Denmark, Lynda taught portraiture at the University of Roskild. She has traveled much of Europe and bicycled through Greece and China. Pontzer maintains a teaching and working studio in Pennsylvania. She has received many awards and recently displayed her work at the Biannual International Contemporary Art Show in Florence, Italy Participation in this art show is by invitation only. You are invited to view more art work and information on her web site at www.PontzersPortraitStudio.com or www.PortraitsAndLandscapes.com.
