Walter Lynn Mosleyis creating Paintings and Drawings
About meI started drawing when I was three and all of my life I have been pursuing the creation of art. I work in landscape, figurative and still life genres and my style falls somewhere in the traditional, classical, impressionistic realm. I have exhibited in major national exhibitions including the American Artists Professional League, Audubon Artists and Greenhouse Gallery and in 2012 was the first artist to participate in the Bryant Park Painter in Residence program and consequently was featured in an article in the New York Times.
I work primarily in oil but I also do watercolor and am a fervent sketcher. I have enjoyed sharing my work online for many years. It is my hope the viewer will be as inspired by my work as I was in the face of creation itself.

A little explanation about Patreon and how this works.Patreon allows anyone to become a patron–a supporter of the arts. Basically it's a way of showing support for an artist whose work you admire; a way of showing support in appreciation for an artist sharing his or her work. It's totally voluntary and you can quit any time, if you want to give for a limited time, even just one month, that is totally fine, you can cancel at anytime. You can refer to the Patreon Help Center to find out more.
What does the patron get out of this?Patreon is similar to Kickstarter, however, where Kickstarter funds a particular project (say for instance, taking a painting trip trip to a foreign land) – Patreon is designed to work on an ongoing basis enabling an artist to continue to create and pursue his or he art. Patrons are as the title implies, showing support for the artist. However, there are rewards for patrons.
Every patron of mine AT THE $5 LEVEL AND UP will be eligible to win an 8x10" print each month, which means that anyone that contributes $5 or more a month is promised the opportunity to win a print each month and at my discretion I will give a small drawing or watercolor painting rather than a print which I've been known to do with great frequency. Plus, patrons at all levels (beginning at the $1 level) will receive a discount code to apply to prints or other products at WalterLynnMosley.com/prints. Beginning at the $50 level, patrons will receive discount code for original paintings which can be found at my website WalterLynnMosley.com I will be adding to the inventory there as time goes by so stay tuned as that develops. And at the $100 level not only will you be be eligible for those awards but you will receive an original painting each month.
Visitors, not only patrons, are welcome on Patreon.
Also please note that all visitors are welcome to view my postings and make comments on Patreon and am so thankful for those who view my work and appreciate it. I value everyone who appreciates my work and welcome all to enjoy my postings on Patreon. If you would rather have something more tangible I have many paintings available (with more on the way) on my website at WalterLynnMosley.com and again WalterLynnMosley.com/prints has prints, posters, greeting cards and other products including phone cases.
Last wordProfessional grade paint, fine linen canvas and quality paper from companies like Arches are not cheap and there are other expenses such as fees for entering exhibitions and annual dues for membership to artists organizations. I am so grateful to everyone for taking an interest in my work and for your words of encouragement. And for those who can become patrons: thank you for assiting in enabling me to continue to create; that is priceless!
