This delicious still life painting was created by Beyond the Brushes member, Linda Knox. Linda joined Beyond the Brushes in the middle of January to satisfy her creative needs. Previously, her only painting experience was a 6-week tole painting with oils course she took in the mid-70s.
Creating this image was a pleasure for Linda at each step of the process, and she especially appreciated the tips she received from Beyond the Brushes on "making it more painterly with additional strokes of color." The experience of painting this still life even inspired Linda to undertake the endeavor of painting a bouquet of irises, and I can't wait to see the results!
During her time in the Beyond the Brushes community, Linda has delighted in the educational experience, stating...
"It's challenging, relaxing, frustrating, and truly satisfying."
As a retiree, Linda paints every day, and she encourages anyone considering joining the community to be prepared to practice. Her personal tip to fellow artists is that when things don't seem to be going your way, take a step back. You can even work on a different painting and return later to the original.
Thank you, Linda. Your contributions to the community are truly stunning. I cannot wait to see how your eagerness to learn and application of knowledge continues to transform your artwork.
