January 2018
Its winter snowy here in Colorado so its great inspiration to paint the Rocky Mountains. We do a lot of hiking above tree line, and you can always feel the power of nature up there. Its such a metaphor for a journey.

To start the painting, I have blocked in the outline of the mountains , sky and foreground in purple and white
The next major step is to develop the sky. I have to do many layers of color to get the depth in the clouds that I want
After getting the sky where I want it, I build the color in the mountains. My plan it to do it in violet and white and then lay  reflected light color fron the sky onto the white areas of the snow

Art Commission in Progress

I am currently working on a pieces of commissioned art for a customer. The picture shows it in progress in my studio

I had originally done the dragonfly pas de deux glass art painting in a 12" x 12" size (for sale here) , and the customer wanted a custom 23 x 23" size to place above her stove.
I still have to put silver leaf on the back, seal it and frame it.

Linda is happy to answer any questions about art commissions that you might have

 I just completed my cowboy boot and lariat glass art painting. It is painted behind the glass. The laser cuts on the boot are 23.7 karat gold, the rest of the painting is backed in silver. I used a small amount of translucent turquoise blue green paint for the stitching etc. The silver behind the paint makes it sparkle like a jewel. The painting is made up of 9 individual glass pieces. It can be installed as a contemporary western kitchen backsplash or  wall art mural. It is also possible to frame each of the 9 glass pieces separately in a thin frame to hang as a grouping on your wall
The rough idea sketch is below. Its funny how things start with a rough drawing on scrap paper  and a cup of coffee in the morning

Just finished this  12" x 12" dragonfly pas de deux, glass art or dragonflies and cattails

This is a super rough sketch of an idea I had in early winter for a glass artwork with cowboy boots, lariat ropes etc. I might put horse heads and cowboy hats in the corners instead of the stars and horseshoes

Watch this page to see how it turns out

I have now painted  the back of the glass with the special translucent paint I make myself. My next step will be to apply silver leaf over the paint for a dramatic light reflecting effect.

I changed things a bit from my original sketch. I added a butterfly in the corner and dropped the petal on one sunflower to be facing down, so that you can imagine the butterfly landing on it

I have started working on another original glass painting. I created a sketch based on my Sunflower Field painting.  I am going to create the new original on a piece of 12" x 12" glass with silver/aluminum leaf for the flowers and real copper for the background.

Why Buy Original art? Some people may ask, "why buy original art when you can buy a nice print". Several reasons, simply put, the original is just far more beautiful. Its also one of a kind. This beauty does not translate as well in the digital world. Another reason is that the original captures the soul of the artist, what the artist is feeling when they are creating the piece can tangibly be felt in an original artwork. Of course the original is far more valuable and usually increases in value. You should buy original art because you love it! It will enrich your life.

Artist Biography

Artists Statement"
When asked ‘What is your favorite painting’, I always say, ‘the next one I am going to paint!”

Favorite question and life philosophy is WHAT IF?  I will fearlessly follow even a thread of curiosity when combining mediums or styles. Let process take me on any tangent.. What's the worst thing that could happen? Even what seems to be any ugly painting or a failure will lead to other things that are not. I feel that unless I am prepared to fail, I can not improve and grow.

Style: I don't paint in any one style, I let inspiration speak to me and I go with the flow. My work runs the gamut from chunky realism to abstract  and impressionist painting.  I use many different mediums to create my artworks.  One of my favorites is egg tempera which I make by crushing stones and minerals and adding egg yolk. Blues come from crushed lapis lazuli, greens from malachite and natural green earth found around Verona Italy. I even use minerals found during hikes in the Rocky Mountains.   
I am captivated not only by the purity and naturalness of this medium, but by the science of it. Each pigment has its own set of properties and capabilities that must be explored. How better to express visions of the earth than with earth itself.  This medium is luminous and lasts for centuries.

I also make my own acrylic paint in the same manner. By adding pure pigment to a acrylic polymer. I can add thing like crushed mica , metals and pearlescents to make the painting come alive.
