“The beauty of nature and being close to the earth have always presented a deep feeling of awe: there is a spiritual connection with each sunrise, change of light, tone of the atmosphere, that engulfs me, and resurfaces again when I pick up a brush.” ~ Linda Wilmes
Linda Wilmes is a long time, self-taught artist, working in a variety of media. In this art exhibition, she has included a few of her earlier works for this presentation. In choosing works for this exhibit, she was reminded of her artistic growth, as well as her goals for the future, which of course include more challenges and gained improvement. Wilmes says, "I know I have yet to do my best work, and am striving for that goal. In looking back, I find I still have the enthusiasm, joy, and deep passion for painting images that inspire me. I am very grateful for this artistic gift, and I intend to use this gift in the very best way I can."
This selection includes oils and acrylics, works from 25 years ago, to her recent art which are mostly watercolors and pastels. You also will find a large selection of subject matter, size, and color selections, which add to the exciting variety of this show. Linda hopes you enjoy her artwork as much as she has enjoyed creating it.
