Description 'Boy in the Middle East' was another class assignment. Carol Lange, another one of my favorite teachers, showed me that I could, in fact, attempt to paint people. With an image this beautiful, I forgot to worry about it.
Linda Spollen Haile, east Central U.S. Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I've been into art and visual learning ever since I watched my grandfather sketch horses. After using visual cues to enhance students' learning for 30 years, I now pursue my own learning. Undergrad glassmaking class first led to my infatuation with fluid color. I love liquid color, light, and shadow. Watercolor captures luminosity like no other medium I've found. Each day that I spend observing light in nature only increases my sense of awe. Beauty can be found everywhere--even in the smallest things. I hope to share the joy that I experience by observing,learning, and knowing my subjects.Your feedback on my art is an important part of my learning process. I look forward to hearing from you.
Here is are two 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
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust P.S. My work is also sold on Fineartamerica.com,on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/Canvas2Cards,on Amazon, and on Facebook.
