I paint to remember - how the light is on a certain day, how lavender the shadows are on the snow, how soft the colors are at dusk. I try to capture what I am seeing and feeling. I like to paint loosely with a large brush using the accidents, transparency and freshness of the watercolor medium itself.
Every click of my camera caught different images of our boat's reflection in the water....
My name is Linda Abbey. I am a VANGO artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I grew up in Illinois and went to college in Indiana. In 1966 I lived in Bizerte, Tunisia for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer teaching English as a foreign language, and then in Italy for six months, teaching English to the marina militare in Taranto. I returned to the US, married, and lived in Princeton, New Jersey for five years, teaching 4th grade, I then moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, taught Title I and learned how to draw and paint watercolor at age 34. In 1990 I moved to Syracuse, New York for 25 years, painting and teaching watercolor. This year, 2016, we retired back in Charlottesville Virginia and I am still painting! I have also lived in Florence Italy two and a half years, and Switzerland, one year. I speak English, and can get by in French and Italian.
