In the News!

 My solo wildlife show on Martha's Vineyard at the Louisa Gould Gallery has a write up in the Martha's Vineyard Times. See link below.

 Wild Things on Exhibit at the Louisa Gould Gallery

There are a few errors as the wonderful writer got some of the stories mixed up.
My husband and I were dropped off by a float plane in Manitoba, not a helicopter
My canoe trip on the Noatak River was not with my husband but with 5 others
While I did see a cow moose and her calf in my yard, the painting in the show is of a bull & cow moose which I saw at Turnbull Wildlife Refuge outside Spokane.

 For my 900th painting, this subject and its title seemed to fit.

Joy Ride    17" X 24"    Original Oil painting by Linda Besse

Once the painting was dry to the touch, I was free to glaze the lower part of the sail. For this I used Liquin and Michael Harding Crimson Lake and Rembrandt Cadmium Orange.

Coincidently, this is also my 900th blog post!
