Lydia’s show “August Hot Wheels” is a journey of old cars spotted off the road, people enjoying riding bikes the beach, trains pulling into the station, and other types of vehicles that caught her eye. I hope you will stop by and enjoy the journey too.
Lydia has been a resident of Northern Virginia since 1980. She began oil painting in her early teens. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University with a minor in fine art, she volunteered to create a program and teach painting to senior citizens in the Michigan community where she grew up. She left teaching to pursue a career as a Special Agent with the FBI which left her little time for oil painting. After at 25 year hiatus, Lydia rediscovered the joy of painting when she retired. She enjoys painting urban and rural landscapes and people doing ordinary things.
