August's Show fetures the work of Linda Gebhart and her fellow TEAA member artists.
Linda's small watercolors capture the viewer with their magical details. At a recent TEAA show, an admirer said, "Look at the tiny features on the birds on the beach! That's just the way they look." As Linda puts it, "Because I like to work on small pieces, my favorite part is being able to see the fruits of my labor in as little as 15 minutes. The seascapes continue to call me as I live near the ocean and am able to work in the open, plein air, or from my many photos taken on beach walks."
Gebhart's career as a high school math teacher demanded most of her time and energy. As retirement approached, she started to imagine what it could be. Given her passion for decorating and design, she decided to try watercolor as a medium. After a few classes, she fell in love with it. "Clean up was a breeze and I could come and go as I pleased. It's great for a multi-tasker like me!", Linda states. Her advice to aspiring artists is to take up the brush and jump right in. "Whether you paint to sell or paint for the sheer pleasure, it's a wonderful creative process."
Linda calls her work "small treasures." She creates mats from cardboard and end pieces, a gesture toward recycling in her craft. She believes that she has success with her small art because she can sell to tourists who then have a memory piece that fits in a suitcase easily! Small or medium, Linda Gebhart's works are a delight for those who love the details and images of our beautiful north coast.
Summer Gallery Hours: 11am-5pm Thurs.-Sun.
