More Chicago-bound paintings


This first painting was a lot of fun to paint despite the the fact that the subject matter was less than desirable to an animal/ bird lover! It measures 3-1/8" x 2-1/2".


This painting of a little girl peeling an apple was intriguing. It measures 2-3/4 x 2-1/16".
All of my paintings will be available at the Chicago International.

    1. Thank you Catherine, I am really getting into painting, I was reluctant- being a woodcarver- but I'm having a blast!

  5. Those dogs are looking very pleased with themselves, I have to say I like that one, despite the hunting theme. Both are amazing though Linda.

    1. Thank you and I hear you, not wild about the hunting theme either, but a really fun painting. I just looked at it as shapes instead of dead stuff :)

  6. Beautiful Work!!! The animals are Perfectly rendered! You are amazing!!! I might have asked this before, but what surface medium are they painted on? You achieve such a fine amount of detail! Wish I could see them up close and Real.... but Chicago is not on my travel plans. I love the girl too... she looks very Dutch! (By that I mean the era when the Dutch were painting "narrative" scenes of ordinary life.)

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment! I use Crescent Illustration board, as it is what I "grew up" with in high school. Hot Press- is smooth. And if it is too thick for the frame, just peel off some layers :)

  7. Both paintings are wonderful Linda. The tiny details, the highlights in the pheasants feathers, the adorable expression of the girls face. Truely wonderful!

  8. I may have said this before, but you're a woman of many talents.
    Now, a large painting with a beautifully carved wooden frame, both by you of course...that's what I'd like to see ;-)

  9. Hi Josje, you mean large like full size scale? Not a fan of large! Maybe 5x7" but no bigger, that's how large I get on pencil drawings. Thank you for the comment :)
