Painting is a passion for communicating your emotions and thoughts. I communicate my inner self by painting landscapes, seascapes, people, animals, interesting architecture and fantasy. The paintings in my collections reflect my imaginative and experiential view of photographs that I've taken and sketches that I have made, in my travels. I aim to tell a story of my mind through my artwork by altering reality to create a whimsical world. I work predominately in Acrylic Paint, and occasionally use oils. I enjoy the Acrylic medium, allowing me to work on a painting in my own space of time.
This show at the Gourgaud Gallery, “Flora, Fauna and Mystical” is a compilation of Art work that I have created over the past 2 years. The exhibit will run from July 8-July 22, 2012.
As a special incentive, the opening day of the Show (July 8, 2012), I am offering a free small matted painting (matted in an 11 x 14 matte) with any purchase of larger painting. This is my second show at the Gourgaud Gallery, which took place in 2010.
Following my retirement as a New York City Art Teacher for 30 years, I returned to my passion of painting. A portfolio of my work can be viewed on my web site www.PaintingsbyLinda.net and also viewed on Facebook at Paintings by Linda. I write a blog that features commentaries of paintings, styles and collections of work on my blog: "Acrylic Painting" www.PaintingsbyLinda.blogspot.com.
