Gather the Wind

Just like everyone, some of my paintings resonate more with me than others. For me there’s something really special about Gather the Wind (36 x 49 in, encaustic and mixed media by Linda Robertson). It’s not just getting the technique just right, though that was extremely satisfying. I think it was more about being able to really capture the feeling I wanted to paint, not simply the shapes and colors.

It’s one of my latest, but it’s already in a new home with one of my regular collectors. In fact, we moved one of my other paintings into her bedroom to make room for this one. (Now that’s a good day!) I had to share this photo of it in pace. Look at those walls! It’s a match made in heaven, and my collector seems to agree.
