Linda has recently returned from an extensive European vacation.

Steeped in the history of the arts: Prague, Budapest, Rome, Florence, and Paris

were only the beginning of a never-ending source of inspiration.

As well as all the formal galleries, the European cities themselves were virtual open-air canvases.

Ron and I decided to purchase a portrait of Nikki done by Dan Gerhartz.  She is now framed and hanging on our wall. 

We smile every time we look at her.

Sage Creek Gallery, one of Santa Fe’s finest art galleries, hosted the

Oil Painters of America’s Eighteenth Annual Exhibition. 

Linda spent much of this trip pursuing portrait and figure painting,

one of her favorite art forms.  Below is a very small sampling of her Santa Fe experience:

Another exciting opening night at Sage Creek Gallery in Santa Fe.

Pictured below are a few photos that convey a very small part of the OPA Show at

Devin Galleries in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Two hundred pieces were juried into this show, from the Western United States and Canada.

Art enthusiasts from across North America were in attendance.

Linda has been juried and accepted into Oil Painters of America (OPA).

Oil Painters of America is a much respected organization that has achieved

outstanding recognition in the renaissance of representational paintings.

All members work in the oil medium.

Master Signature members are among the most highly recognized and exhibited representational artists in North America.


Linda travelled to Missoula, Montana to the National Juried Exhibition of

Traditional Oils for OPA

(with some amazing scenery along the way)

in Missoula, Montana.


What a thrill to see, not only the buyers,

but the hundreds of people,

who travelled just to see the show.



Linda was invited to participate in the Arts Without Borders Festival and

the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards in Lloydminster.

She participated in the Arts Unleashed Quick Draw, Silent Auction and Wine Reception

held at the Barr Colony Heritage Cultural Centre in conjunction with this event. 

This painting was done in one hour, as guests watched it unfold.




 Linda’s auction painting was original oil, done in a 17th Century Style.




Linda’s completed painting “Brass Teapot” was done from a still life, which was set up just prior to the beginning of the allotted painting time. 




Gallery guests then bid on a “wet-just-completed” 17th century painting. The final bid went to Skip and Dianne Krake, of Lloydminster. Many thanks to the generous patrons who bid on the painting and took part in the reception.




Pictured above are Barb McKeand, Director, and Vic Juba, Chair, of the Arts Without Borders Festival Committee.



The Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation was created to celebrate excellence in the arts and to promote the arts in Alberta. Three awards of $30,000.00 were given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the arts by Albertans or significant contribution to the arts in Alberta.


Along with these awards, the Gwen Mottram Arts Volunteer Award was presented to Olinda Tindall of Lloydminster.
