Linda Krukar's Gallery

Watercolor and acrylic paintings

Painting is the life force that propels me through everyday tedium.  If I can create, all is well. Beauty, joy, pain, and horror inspire me to transform my emotions to color and composition….aspiring to evoke energy and emotional response in those who view my work.

Recent developments that allow me to get past the technical and thrive on the energy I wish to convey have made my desire to paint even stronger. Less is more. Fewer strokes with greater control and pure color allow the energy to flow.

My challenge is to maximize the force and mood in my work, to convey to the viewer, all that the simplest of things in life can provoke.

The opportunities in the development of my art career have been truly appreciated. Each accomplishment fuels my quest for the chance to bring art into my community, and, just as important, the community into my art.

The journey of learning to express emotion through painting is so much more rewarding than I ever imagined. Sharing the learning journey with others is even more rewarding.
