Linda Spollen Haile, east Central U.S. Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I realized I've been involved in visual learning ever since I watched my grandfather sketch the horses that pulled his cart through New York. After using visuals myself for 30 years to enhance my students' learning, I now get to pursue my own learning. An undergrad glassmaking class led to an infatuation with fluid color. I love liquid color. Liquid light. Watercolor captures nature's luminosity like no other medium I've found. Each day that I spend observing light in nature only increases my sense of awe. I like to slow down and share these discoveries with you through my art work. Beauty is all around us,-- just waiting-- if we take time to observe. Your feedback on my work is an important part of this lifelong learning process. I look forward to hearing from you.
Here is one of my favorite quotes: "Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in the magic will never find it." ------Roald Dahl
