Original Paintings: Seascapes

Linda works in a variety of media, including oil pastel, soft pastel, colored pencil, water-soluble colored pencil, pen & ink, & graphite. Sometimes she combines media, such as in her series of "mini" paintings, where she uses water-soluble colored pencil with pen & ink & gouache.

Being skilled with many different media gives Linda a tremendous amount of freedom to express herself & to communicate with her viewers. For example, in Peonies, she specifically wanted to communicate the fluffy - yet volumetric - quality of the flowers in a rather large composition, so she chose Sennelier oil pastels because of their full-bodied creaminess. On the other hand, the depiction of texture required for her rendering of Gargoyle was better handled by colored pencil on vellum bristol board.

Timber Cove is located near Jenner & Bodega Bay on California's Sonoma Coast.  Linda's goal here was to capture the movement of the water with no reference to either land or sky.

This sunset in Laguna Beach, California greeted Linda & her husband Tom from their hotel window one evening. The peach clouds hanging in front of the turquoise sky were just irresistible!

A cloudy day at the beach: A perfect example of when color is not needed to "tell the story." The center of interest is the wave action. The beach is empty, but the sand bears the marks of many feet & the wheels of the beach patrol jeep.

With the very same vantage point as in Laguna 1, but on a different day, here the action is in the sky: The setting sun breaks through the clouds, sending out crepuscular rays & ricocheting off the water blindingly.

This scene is from Indian Shores in Florida, near Tampa. Linda was walking on the beach at sunset when she came upon these posts near the water's edge. The verticality of the slightly mysterious posts contrasts nicely with the flatness of the horizon & water.
