The idea for The Gibson germinated on a car ride to the airport in a moment of synchronicity when a painter and a musician found they both had been looking for an opportunity to explore bringing together the common language of their art forms.
The Gibson with Dave Curley, became the third in a series of oil paintings of musicians Lyn Boyer had been working on. It also became a segue to the art and music collaboration of painter Lyn Boyer and musician and songwriter Dave Curley.
Having a background as an editorial illustrator, Lyn’s passion as a painter is that of a storyteller. The intent, to evoke a feeling, a moment in time. Dave’s remarkable talent as a powerful lyricist and musician felt like the perfect counterpart.
In 2020 Dave and Lyn will be collaborating on multiple projects they hope will open a window into the creative process for both artists and art lovers.
