This book is a collection of 50 original oil paintings inspired by visitors to the art museum.
"I often go to the museum to view the great master’s works or a new exhibit and people see me sitting much like the woman in the above painting.
One day, I realized that I was fascinated by the way people were viewing the art and began sketching them. Actually, the first painting that developed in this series was not actually "in the museum", but was of a friend playing her violin at one of my art openings. "
All of the original oil paintings in this book now reside in many places around the world and Linda continues to produce new works that inspire the viewer to notice the everyday moments of life.
