Linda Swan, Howell, MI, 48855 Member Since October 2013 Artist Statement I graduated from California State College at Long Beach with a major in Art Ed. For the last five years I've spent the summers sailing on Lake Michigan in a 16' Newport Lockley. Water and clouds have become an alluring subject with their many moods, patterns, rhythms. Energy merges as light, wind, water dance and create magic. Watercolor on illustration board is a media that can evolve into interesting textures and transparencies. Rather than controlling the paint one has to work with it and let it go. As I delve deeper into nature my work becomes more about energy and is evolving into the abstract. Connectedness and energy are becoming the fascination moving forward.
On 11/8/13 my water paintings were awarded a Second Place Ribbon at the Brighton Art Guild's Art Show and Sale.
