Painting a Pastel Seascape – Part 2 with Lyn Diefenbach

Lyn has been a professional artist for 25 years and a teacher of the craft of painting across Australia and the world for some 20 years. For quite some time Lyn wasted a lot of energy worrying about whether being an artist was something worthwhile.  But then she read Pope John Paul 2’s letter to all artists and this had a profound influence on her. In his letter John Paul exhorted :

“Artists of the world, may our many different paths all lead to that infinite ocean of beauty where wonder becomes awe, exhilaration, unspeakable joy……… May your art help to affirm true beauty, which as a glimmer of the Spirit of God, will transfigure matter, opening the soul to the sense of the eternal.”

“Rise to the challenge of stepping outside of your comfort zone and go on a voyage of discovery, even if the end result is the discovery that it is not the direction in which you want to go. You have allowed yourself to put in place one more stepping stone of your life’s journey. Always remember that a perceived failure is simply paving the way to success and a deeper understanding of yourself.”  – Lyn
