Here are three brand new limited edition prints (which can be purchased at www.animaanimus.org) accompanied by a Walter Russell quote. Much of what Russell has to say aligns with the concepts in my work and the nautilus painting above was inspired by one of his beautiful diagrams which depicts the various elements in nature. Enjoy!
“We are all electric creatures floating in the electric sea of this electric universe. Every electric thing in the entire universe breathes electrically into itself from the rest of the electric universe which is outside of itself. It also breathes out of itself into the rest of the universe. In more simple words, we might say everything in the universe is trying to become every other thing; and every condition of everything is trying to become every other condition.”

In the midst of the collapsing cultural pillars, as many feel uncertainty and despair I invite you, we ask you to boldly create and answer the Call for Entries for this new traveling exhibit, “Words In Red – the Direct, Uncensored and Provocative Words of Jesus.” His words have life-giving power and you can give them visual embodiment. Deadline for juried entries is Sept. 1st, 2016. For prospectus, entry form and other details see more.

There’s a buzz in Southern Oregon.

Masterpiece Christian Fine Arts Foundation has had extraordinary experiences and connected with over 40,000 thousand guests as we have traveled with our fine arts exhibits and art conferences.
Fine art provides a wide open door to conversation and interaction with individuals from all walks of life, languages, backgrounds and cultures…an opportunity to infuse a Biblical worldview into the cultural dialogue and experience.
Magna Deo is a vision to establish a church and cultural center dedicated to the reawakening of the truth, grace, beauty and nobility of Christianity through the vehicle of the fine arts, music, film-making, culinary arts, drama and education.

New paintings added to lindaabblettwatercolors.com
I recently completed two new works and discovered another that had not previously been added to my website. There are now three new paintings added to lindaabblettwatercolors.com for you to see! Click any image to learn more.
Biscotti and Lavender
New painting added 6/1/16.
11″ x 15″
First, a new watercolor painting named “Biscotti and Lavender.”
I’ve been experimenting with new ways of rendering my subjects. This one introduces a bit of transparency into subjects of the still life, a ceramic biscotti jar and vase with fruits, vegetables and lavender flowers. For those who love purple, this lavender-centric watercolor painting is the one for you!
Music Under the Night Lights
New Painting added 6/1/16
15″ x 11″
Next, another new watercolor named “Music Under the Night Lights.”
This painting was inspired by an outdoor music festival under the stars and lights of an Italian village called Bonasola. I experimented with pouring the paint on this one. This resulted in a different style for me, but it’s a fun effect and I’m happy with the results.
Sweet and Sour in Sorrento
15″ x 11″
“Sweet and Sour in Sorrento” is another painting inspired by my travels in Italy. I loved the contrast of the yellow and red when I saw this fruit hanging on a road side shed. It is not one of my new works, but was inadvertently left out of the images I sent to webmistress Hannah West when we created my new website last year.
I currently have more paintings exhibited in the “Celebrate” show at Art Presence Art Center in Jacksonville, Oregon for June and July. Please visit the gallery to see my paintings in the show. The reception will be Saturday, June 11 from noon to 3pm – do join us, I would love to meet you! I hope you will also enjoy looking through my website and considering a purchase for you home or professional office.

Prices Reduced on Original Watercolors!
Over the past few weeks I have been sifting through all my original watercolors. There are many beloved pieces in my collection of originals, but there are older paintings that need to find their permanent homes. After looking through them all, I felt I needed to clear some of my inventory out to make room for new paintings, so there were more pieces that got price changes as well. These selections include some of my favorite paintings from places I have traveled around the world, as well as Oregon summertime paintings and some beautiful florals and still life pieces. The end result: when looking through my online shop, you will find many prices reduced on original watercolors…over half of them! Some paintings have been repriced with a modest discount of $25, but others will yield savings of up to $175 over the original price. I hope that, after looking through my watercolor offerings, you will find that the ones you love most are the paintings with new, lower prices.
The original prices are no longer shown on the website. However, below is a gallery that will give you a peek at the paintings which have had their prices reduced (viewing the enlarged version in the gallery pages will show you the original price). Beneath is a list of titles in the same order with links to the shop where you can learn more, see the new prices, and make a purchase. Sorry we couldn’t provide the links in the captions…we tried and it caused problems elsewhere on the site.
