Ready to Hang
I’d like to say I start with a definitive idea but I usually don’t. On occasion I do but it changes to something completely different. Unless it’s a portrait for course.
Usually i have 2-4 paintings on the go. Sometimes they just have to dry between sessions and sometimes, I just need time to consider my next move. When you leave it for a couple of days or weeks, all of a sudden the next move stikes me and it progresses again.
I am the most successful when I paint in the moment, then ideas flow about intuitively. Thats the only time I really enjoy and am happy with the painting......so just don’t ask me where the ketchup is!
My name is Linda L Toews and I am fortunate to live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. British Columbia, Canada. My artist endeavours were nutured by a wonderful teacher. Suava Caitaine, who taught us every medium available at the time! I love to paint in water based oils, acrylics and mixed media. For the past couple of years I have invested considerable time in digital drawing, I learn something new everyday, so it never gets old. Thank you for taking the time to view my work. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have making it. Sincerely, Linda L Toews
