  Winter/Spring 2017

  As I am writing this, we are on the cusp of Spring. It has been a long winter with snow on the ground at our house since before Thanksgiving. I have been traveling to shows and my road trip to the NatureWorks show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, gave me a chance to try out my new Canon camera body. It performed flawlessly, and any reference photos which aren’t perfect are due solely to operator error!

  Fall 2016

Snow has now fallen here but nothing to shovel - yet. However, my mind set is still thinking about the beginning to Autumn in northern Manitoba this past September. When you can see six adult polar bears before 8 am, it is going to be a great day. Add to that the brilliant colors of fall in the tundra and your breath is taken away. I hope your Fall months have been spectacular.


Linda’s painting Just Above Freezing was chosen from thousands of entries to place 3rd in the Animal Category of the Artist’s Magazine’s 2016 Annual Contest. Her paintings Tango and Sister Act were selected as Finalists
