The artist on whom I want to put the spots on today is Linda Lennea, self taught Canadian painter. Inspired by love for nature, by the peacefulness and quite beauty of countryside landscapes, Linda is bringing us into her world through unique artworks that combine abstract with realism and fantastical elements.
The magic of forests, of the trees, of special moments of the day makes her paintings to stand up immediately among other artworks and makes them incomparable.
The colours of Linda Lennea’s paintings open a window into my mind, the window of escape of my everyday concerns, a window that let my mind get free for a while , so that when the wind of reality closes it, I am in the position to still let my imagination and creativity to flow. For this reason I find her paintings appropriate for both my house and my office.
Because Trees are probably the most common motif in Linda’s art, we thought to make a special art series related to trees and show it step by step under our page specially created for arts in progress, where our readers and visitors have the chance to see and learn from artists around the world what are their art secrets and how do they reach to the final result.
“The forest inspires my paintings, I relate the trees to real life. Although we see woodlands around us everyday, I think the true beauty of a single tree is over looked, much like person getting lost in the crowd. Not all trees are majestic, sturdy and strong , but they all have the ability to adapt and grow in any situation....the same way we do. I get great peace and comfort painting them.” Linda Lennea
