“There is no greater compliment to me as an artist than when someone chooses to make one of my paintings a part of their life. I am blessed to be in West Virginia where nature provides beauty and emotions from which I draw tremendous strength and a desire to create. My goal is to communicate to others through my painted images. This is a way to share my memories, my love of life and of color with others. If my paintings have helped you to enjoy a moment now or if they have helped you to remember earlier times in your life, then my work is complete.”
As a native and resident of West Virginia, Linda takes pride in her home state. Residing in the southern coal fields during her childhood limited her exposure to fine art. After having lived and worked in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area where she experienced the world of art, her desire and passion to paint began.
Watercolor was her first chosen medium. Pristine watercolor images created in a realistic form are some of her favorite. Often 22-karat gold leaf is incorporated into her abstracted paintings along with several other mediums which produce unusual textures and highlights. Her present chosen medium and studies are in oil.
We will be featuring “The Passion for Art” through September 12, 2015
