Our demo artist for this month is:

lindadellandre1Linda Dellandre

Linda will be demonstrating pastels for us.
Linda attended art school while working as a nurse at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Northern Arizona University, Montgomery County Community College, PA.  She works primarily in pastel and oils. “The landscape is my primary form of expression, whether oil or pastel, plein air or studio.  I am awed by the beauty of this land and I’d like to communicate to the viewer a sense of place, a certain light of day, or a glimpse out the car window.”


Don’t forget our Fall Show on October 24 at Kingwood Christian Church!  We are looking forward to seeing what beautiful artwork you’ve created!
