Local Artist Pays Homage to Queena Stovall

Friday, June 8, 2018

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But for an artist it is so much more. Artists copy or borrow from other artists to learn and grow more than to flatter. When local artist Carol Burnett encountered the work of Lynchburg artist Queena Stovall over twenty years ago, she knew that she not only encountered a kindred spirit, but had found a lifelong artistic mentor as well. "I loved her imagination, her compositions and the natural way that she captured life as it was," explain Burnett of her decades long admiration of Stovall's painting. While these two local treasures never met, they share a similar artistic vision and journey. Like Stovall, Burnett is a self-taught artist who is drawn to depict fond memories, people, place and events in her past. And also like Stovall, Burnett found a primitive painterly style to express herself and tell her stories.
