It's been a while since I have posted, but with the holidays now well over I can give an update.

Linda decided to reproduce several of her paintings on note cards and had them for sale in several locations in our area during the Christmas shopping season. They sold well and she still has some available for anyone that is interested. Email her at

Linda was asked to paint a large painting for the cover of the Blue Ridge Hunt's point to point race guide. The race is March 31st and the painting is to be auctioned off at some later date after the race. This is a big opportunity for Linda to show her equine paintings to the horse community. The painting was quite a challenge since it had to work as a stand alone painting and as a layout for the guide cover. The painting looks great and will hopefully raise a lot of money for the Blue Ridge Hunt Club.

Linda also had a fox hunt painting in the Cross Gate Gallery's traveling centennial exhibition for the Masters of Foxhounds Association of America. I say had because the painting sold in the first couple of weeks, so she is preparing to send another painting.

I have not been painting much, not sure why, lacking inspiration I think. The spring weather should get us out landscape painting and that should get me moving.
