Lynn Rothan lets the world speak to her, showing itself and its beauty. Then she takes it from there. Intuition is key for Rothan, which you can see in her retrospective show currently on display in the Pence Pinckney Gallery at Central Oregon Community College.

The quality of life and the colors of the high desert called Rothan to make her home in Central Oregon in the 1980s. “Having sunshine all the time, as a painter, is amazing,” she says. It’s obvious how the natural landscape inspires her work. Often, using a variety of mediums, Rothan seeks to enhance what’s already there, showcasing beauty and allowing it to be alive.
