Charles Lyon continues to be inspired by the delicacy and the intensity of flowers, specifically peonies, dahlias and zinnias. These blossoms, made up of multiple layers of soft, translucent petals that burst outward from their centers, provide the artist with subject matter that is both visually rich and technically challenging. Although they vary in texture, color and complexity, all of Lyon’s blooms reflect the seemingly fleeting months of Minnesota’s warmer seasons. The intricacies of their designs – fashioned by nature – reveal their beauty as well as their purpose within their environment.
