Summersville Lake

Scenes from West Virginia


West Virginia native Lynn Boggess prefers to paint en plein air, producing works striking in their manipulation of light and texture. Here, in 10 July 2018 (oil on canvas, 46” x 40”), he depicts a scene at Summersville Lake in the southwestern part of West Virginia. Boggess has received numerous awards for his landscapes, including his home state’s Governor’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
