Last post for 2008

As the evening--and 2008--draws to a close, we would be remiss if we didn't stop to compose a quick post to this blog to send out our best wishes into cyberspace and beyond. All in all, it has been a wonderful year for us and hope that you can say the same. Our best wishes for 2009 to you, our dear readers, friends, students of art, art collectors and fellow artists. Linda and David Jacobson

What a busy last few weeks we've had! The Casa de Linda Holiday Open House and Student Art Show was great. Had tons of folks visit during Wassailfest and we certainly ended the week on a high note. Then we were in Austin at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center for a 2-day gift show. As you can see by the photo I'm posting, I was even interviewed and on TV! Austin's News8 did 2 live shots with me on Sunday morning! As many of you know, I'm always happy to talk about my wildflowers! If you one of the many who dropped by this weekend or came to the Open House...thanks!

Wassailfest in New Braunfels Texas

Yes, its party time in downtown New Braunfels again as they close down the streets to cars and the shops open their doors. The official date for Wassailfest is the first Thursday of December each year. So for 2008 Wassailfest is on December 4th from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. What is wassail? Traditionally, it is a warm spiced punch drink made with an apple cider base often mixed with alcohol. Cinnamon is probably the most used spice in wassail. The variations from there are endless. For this festival there is leaded (with alcohol) and unleaded (non-alcoholic). With upwards of 50 different recipes (most non-alcoholic) being served you’re bound to find one that will become your favorite.

Wassailfest started in 1992 as a small hometown event has become a full-blown regional festival of fun for the whole family. Over 13,000 people attended in 2007, so plan on coming early to find parking outside of the main plaza area. Remember that the streets are closed for several blocks in each direction so if you do park there you are stuck until they open the streets back up after 9 p.m. You will get towed if you park on the streets in the blocked off area so be careful as we all want you to have fun and not have an unpleasant suprise for this festive evening!

Along with more wassail to taste then any one person could possibly want, there are several bands, choir groups, and loads of other activities for young and old alike. The Christmas lights add a wonderful holiday touch. Most stores will have special sales for this festive event to go along with the rest of the fun.

At Casa De Linda Studio and Art Gallery, we will be concluding our Student Art Show and Open House with Wassailfest. We are located above the New Braunfels Art League Gallery at 239 W. San Antonio. It is a great place to get away from the crowds below and enjoy some great wildflower paintings and see what some of Linda’s art students have been painting this year. Linda will be upstairs in the studio and will have all the information on the 2009 art classes. We are having a very special Red Dot Sale as well. There is still some great wildflower art available for a song. A few of Linda’s Abstract and Canyon Lake Gorge paintings are still available...but not for long! There are also Christmas cards, keepsake boxes, coffee mugs, ceramic tiles and even calendars all based on Linda’s wildflower paintings. So if you’re looking for truly unique gifts for friends, family, co-workers or yourself then stop by and have a look. Have fun wassailing and we hope to see you there. On behalf of Linda, we wish you the very best this holiday season — David.

This time of year is always so busy, isn't it? Well as if you don't already have enough to do, if you are in the Central Texas area, you might want to mark you calendar for these upcoming events:

Casa de Linda Holiday Open House & Student Art Show
NOV. 29-DEC. 4; Noon-5 p.m. daily; plus 5-8 p.m. on Dec. 4

Each year I host a Holiday Open House at my Casa de Linda Art Studio and Gallery in downtown New Braunfels, Texas. Last year, I added a special exhibit of paintings by my art students and will do the same again this year.
I'm lining up about 12 or 15 students, both children and adults, for this student show. This gives the public the opportunity to see the wonderful work of my students and gives them a chance to show their work off to friends and family. My Spring 2009 art class schedule will be available as well. I'll also have some new art of my own on display and a great selection of products with my wildflowers...just in time for Christmas!

Downtown New Braunfels' Wassailfest
Thursday, Dec. 4, from 5-9 p.m.

This is one of the coolest events around! They shuts the streets down for a block or so in all directions radiating out from the fabulously decorated Main Plaza. Then all of the shops and businesses serve free wassail all evening. Many stores will have special sales going on as well. At the New Braunfels Art League Gallery, they also serve cookies for the little ones. What a great family event! So pack up the kids and head to downtown New Braunfels on Dec. 4. And be sure to come up to my studio/gallery above the New Braunfels Art League Gallery and say hello!

Annual Holiday Shopping Event at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center; Dec. 6-7; Saturday 9-5:30, Sunday 12-5

I'm thrilled to be one of the artists invited to exhibit at this annual event. The Wildflower Center will be decked out for the holidays.

As many of you know, my husband, David, has been kind enough to help with the blog entries lately. I'm sure it's confusing to you sometimes...not knowing who is "speaking" on these posts. But today, I just wanted to drop in for a minute to announce that I've added 14 of my newest floral paintings to my website. This includes work from both my contemporary series and my new "Summer of Love" series. I hope that you get a chance to check out these newest paintings. When you get to my homepage, just click on the "Wildflower Fantasy," the large image in the middle of the page (or any other link that takes you to my online gallery). Some of these new works are currently in the exhibit at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center; others are in the show at Cafe Josie.

Fine Art and Fine Dining at Café Josie in Austin, Texas

Linda is proud to announce that a varied collection of her wildflower artwork is hanging in Café Josie in Austin through New Year’s Eve. Linda and I (David, her husband) went up this last Saturday to hang her wildflower paintings in this American Tropics inspired fine dining establishment. The ceiling are high and the spot-lighting are great for showing off her colorful wildflower art.

We first hung “Rapture,” which is an all palette knife scene of wildflowers in an open meadow with a few oak trees off to the side and in the distance. The sunset on the horizon is lit up against a thunderstorm rolling in. “Rapture” is a very unique painting so we set it on a wall by itself.

We next hung five of her more familiar contemporary wildflower series on the back wall, centering in the middle “Wildflowers Fire Dance,” with its strong orange background with a nice mix of wildflowers in the mid and foreground. This is a horizontal painting so we used two vertical paintings, each with strong blue themes, to either side to add a nice contrast. The two outside paintings on this wall were both new pieces: “Wildflower Paradise,” with its deep blue sky and the other, “Sunset Serenade,” with delicate hues of magenta.

The last wall to hang was the focal point for entry to the main dining area and Linda chose several paintings from her “Summer of Luv” series. This is the first time any of this series has been out of New Braunfels and we both are very pleased with the combination of the American Tropic Cuisine and these new wildflower paintings. This Texas inspired art is a wonderful match for a tropical theme. The vibrant colors remind me of visions of the fruits and exhilarating sunsets of the tropics. This series is a great compliment to the bright vibrant colors of the tasty dishes served at Café Josie in my humble opinion.

After getting all 13 paintings hung and positioned we both spent some well-earned time admiring the setting and the new ambiance just created. We look forward to hearing from Café Josie customers on how they feel about this new art exhibit and hope that it adds to their dining pleasure.

Café Josie is located in the heart of the art district at 1200 B West 6th Street just off from Downtown and is just behind Wally Workman Art Gallery. You can check out their menu and other pertinent information at

Linda Has Her Own Austin Art Gallery...

To display her newest Texas wildflower art paintings. At least that is what it felt like after getting 24 of her contemporary wildflower art paintings hung this last Monday at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center. There are 17 new paintings never seen before outside of Casa De Linda Art Studio and Gallery. This art exhibition runs through December 14th so it really is for the next two months anyway, like having a Contemporary Wildflower Art Gallery in Austin Texas.

With ample room and gallery style spot lighting, this is an incredible opportunity to see Linda’s artwork and really have a great viewing experience in a comfortable quiet setting. The McDermott Learning Center and Gallery is the old carriage house that was located behind the historic Driskill Hotel located in downtown Austin Texas at 604 Brazos Street. It was moved and renovated at the Wildflower Center in the 1990’s and has since been used as a venue for fine art exhibitions of Texas and nationally recognized artists. Most of this artwork has revolved around Texas and wildflowers, so Linda’s wildflower paintings feel right at home.

Linda will be having a meet the artist reception this coming Saturday October 18th 2008 from 12 P.M. to 2 P.M. This is a wonderful opportunity to see and discuss this colorful, contemplative Texas artwork. This one-woman art show by Linda Calvert Jacobson officially runs from October 18th to December 14th. If you can’t make the reception there will still be ample time to swing by immerse yourself in this exhilarating Texas contemporary art exhibit.

"Summer of Luv" Wildflowers Featured at New Braunfels Art League Gallery

It is an honor and a privilege to be chosen as Artist of the Month and to be recognized by her artist peers for the unique beauty and joyful expressions that Linda continues to develop with her floral artwork focused on wildflowers. Linda has evolved her Texas art with a distinctive style and grace that stays true to her roots with unique colorful interpretations of wildflowers for the world to enjoy.

The “Summer of Luv” a brand new series of wildflower paintings is being featured at the New Braunfels Art League Gallery for the month of October. Linda will have an artist reception on Thursday October 9th from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M. The reception is being held in conjunction with the New Braunfels Wine Stroll in downtown during the same hours.

This new series harkens back to the sixties with tie-dyed t-shirts and colorful expressive art where flower power ruled supreme. It seems we have come full circle in some ways with troubled times of war and economic upheaval in the forefront of the daily news. Our human instinct is to seek refuge in the soothing arms of Mother Nature.

Whether you grew up during the sixties or came of age after this time its indelible mark continues to reverberate over the decades. Seeking the solace of nature and using it so creatively in the art during that time helped relieve the stress and tensions amongst all the turmoil and challenges that surrounded us then as it can even now.

Linda approaches her art as therapy for our mind and soul freeing us from the challenges and stresses that are a part of our daily lives. She is honored that so many folks understand the joy and beauty that her wildflower paintings can bring into their lives. They have chosen to find a spot in their homes so they can experience the healing effects of her wildflower artwork.

As soon as possible these newest works will be available on the Casa De Linda website but for now you can go to the New Braunfels Art League Gallery throughout the month of October and see them in person. or go to NBAL website and click on the Artist of the Month picture.
This post is made by David, Linda’s husband while she gets ready for the reception later today. We both hope to see you there!

Celebrating one year anniversary for online store; new products added!

My how time flies, and looking back over the last year we are starting to get a real sense of all the new unique Texas themes that Linda’s wildflower paintings have come to life on. This year’s Christmas designs from Texas are from one of her new works called “Texas Bluebonnet Medley”. This latest edition is available on greeting and note cards, Christmas ornaments, and on ceramic mugs. The Christmas cards come with Happy Holiday’s, Season Greetings, or Merry Christmas and with or without From Texas.

Each year Linda promises to create a new Texas theme from her wildflower art and make them available for several of the CaféPress products. Of course we will continue to have the older artwork designs available along with the new so it will always be your choice as to which Texas related gifts you might want to share with your loved one each year.

For all those folks that are not fortunate enough to still live in Texas this is a great way to remember and share your Texas heritage. Linda’s computer graphic design skills meld so well with her painting skills that I have no doubt that this is the start of a wonderful Texas Christmas tradition. 20 years from now we will be looking back with the same sense of wonderment of a child waking up on Christmas morn all antsy to see what is under the tree. The gift of giving has always been one of Linda’s greatest joys and to share her talent in ways that bring such happiness to folks throughout the year is both a privilege and a pleasure.

We continue to be impressed with the quick turn around and shipping of the CaféPress products and on the rare occasion where something is not quite right about the order the Complete and NO questions asked FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE!

This blog written for you by David, Linda’s little Christmas elf!

Its Wildflower Seed Planting Time in Texas

Linda creates this wonderfully colorful wildflower art but without nature putting on a fantastic display of floral extravagance there would be no inspiration to draw from and share. As a Horticulturist this is my time of year to go to work and help Mother Nature in some small way to continue to carpet the Texas Hill Country in its own fabulous wildflower painting just begging to be captured on Linda’s canvas.

Watching your wildflower seed come up and then come into bloom the following season is one of those surreal experiences of nature that teaches us patience and to plan ahead for our future rewards. These are two traits often lacking in our education system. I have often found nature to be a stern teacher of many of the great truths that make any life truly meaningful.

The best time to plant wildflowers as a whole are between mid-September and mid- November. The farther north you are in Texas the earlier you would want to plant and the further south you are the later you can sow your seed. I would guess for many folks their first attempts in this process would be with Texas bluebonnets that most beloved of Texas symbols of nature. Many folks don’t realize that the bluebonnet as a legume fixes nitrogen from the air and so heals and enriches poor native soils over time. The next thing to be aware of is that nature to ensure survival of this beautiful blue beacon of spring splendor is that the seed coat is very hard and they won’t all sprout at once like many flower seed you might have grown in your garden. You can get them scarified already if you plan on giving them the water they need if nature doesn’t give us the needed fall and winter rains to make a good crop. If on the other hand you’re willing to let nature take its due course then scatter and lightly rake your bluebonnets in making sure you have good soil contact but don’t bury them more than a ¼ of an inch deep and wait. Remember this is a lesson on patience. Learn to identify the desired seedling and pull the undesired ones to slow the weed competition

If you would like to see more wildflower information then Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is a great source. The wildflower seed company they choose to recommend is also my choice and that is Native American Seed out of Junction Texas. Here is to great Texas art and Mother Nature the Master Artist.

This is another entry by David, Linda’s husband and biggest fan.

With Hurricane Ike just passing both Linda and I send our prayers out to all in harms way to come through this safely and that we all will come together to rebuild what nature takes away.

Colorful wildflower art inspired by childhood memories

“Dancing with Bluebonnets” can best be described as tribute, a memorial if you will, to Charles Calvert (Linda’s father) and a simpler time. This painting gets to the core of Linda’s artistic expression with her series of contemporary wildflowers. One of Linda’s earliest memories of wildflowers are of a field of bluebonnets that were kept intact by her father on the family farm south of San Antonio back in the early 1960s. Times were lean and with a growing family it seems amazing that valuable farm land lay fallow of income producing crops but as her father explained to Linda simply that he liked the bluebonnets that emerge each spring despite the fact that all his surrounding neighbors lacked an appreciation for these “weeds” running wild on perfectly good farmland. Mr. Calvert savored the beauty of nature’s colorful wildflower art but he was also allowing nature to improve the land naturally at the same time. Whether he knew this at the time we will never know.

We do know now that Texas bluebonnets, as a part of the legume family, have the ability to capture nitrogen from the air and store it in its root nodules making it available in the soil for later use. In simple terms, bluebonnets increase over time the fertility of the land in grows upon and is one of nature's many tricks to replenishing nutrients to a poor soil. Beautification and soil conservation all in one plant the bluebonnet truly deserves it elevated status as the Texas state flower.

This early memory of Linda’s speaks of the aesthetic value her father placed on one of nature’s “beautiful weeds” long before Lady Bird Johnson focused her attention to our Texas highways in 1969. These soil conservation and beautification projects have been on going ever since and have taken on a life of their own. We owe a debt of gratitude to these two people. Lady Bird Johnson’s legacy grows all around us each year. The legacy of Charles Calvert lives on though his daughter’s wildflower art. Thank you Lady Bird and thank you Charles Calvert for each of you have and will continue to bring joy to people the world over for many years to come.

Note: This is another entry by David (Linda's husband).

"Dancing With Bluebonnets" a hit In the UK, too

"Dancing with Bluebonnets" wildflower artwork by Linda Calvert Jacobson heralds from a strong tradition and love of bluebonnets by Texans and those folks enamored with the mystique that is Texas!

Bluebonnets officially became the Texas state flower in 1901 and this beloved Texas symbol of nature has been painted literally by thousands of artists. Throughout the ensuing years prominence of the Texas state flower enjoyed a significant place in the realistic landscape paintings in the art world. The three best by many accounts are Porfirio Salinas, Robert W. Wood, and William A. Slaughter. These ground-breaking artist’s artwork continues to increase in value and are highly collectable. These artists set the style of almost all bluebonnet paintings of the 1900s and few have dared venture outside this mold. Consequently the style loss favor for without new creative vision even the best of art becomes stale and redundant. Maybe like the proverbial fruitcake that is everywhere and yet is not savored by many, the bluebonnets in present day art seem to have met this fate as well.

Linda, with her contemporary wildflower series, breaks new ground and breathes new life into wildflower art and with “Dancing with Bluebonnets” rekindles the lowly bluebonnet artwork back to the cutting edge of the 21st century. This painting is close up as if you were lying in a field of bluebonnets. The impressionistic and mildly abstract tangent that Linda Calvert Jacobson takes allows ample room for the imagination to go to work for all your senses to be involved with this vision before you. Feel the sun on your face, smell the sweet floral scents as the breeze wafts by enchanting you with its sweet caress. This tactile painting almost begs to be touched like the bluebonnets that surround you.

Unfortunately the original painting is sold and in a private collection here in Texas but at least in England some chances still exist to scoop up one of these art-inspired watches. Everyone else can visit the online store and check out all the cool mugs, coasters, t-shirts, and other goodies available and with over 15 wildflower paintings to choose from your bound to find something you just got to have to brighten your day!

Linda’s wildflower art-inspired watches have proven to be very popular and are flying out the door fast on Bid TV over in the U.K. With these limited-edition watches dwindling down to a few remaining hundred we want to share some exciting news for the folks on this side of the pond.

Linda is honored to be invited back to the world-renowned Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin Texas to offer an exclusive one-woman show of her contemporary wildflower paintings . This exhibit will feature 20 to 30 of these original fine art paintings all under one roof at the McDermott Learning Center which offers a well lit gallery style setting for this display. The exhibit opens on October 18th and runs through December 15th.

The Wildflower Center is named in honor of its co-founder and former First Lady, Lady Bird (Mrs. Lyndon) Johnson. As quoted from the Wildflower Center's website:

"Decades ago, Mrs. Johnson recognized that our country was losing its natural landscapes and its natural beauty. As much as 30 percent of the world’s native flora is at risk of extinction. The Wildflower Center was intended to help preserve and restore that beauty and the biological richness of North America. Since then, the Center has become one of the country’s most credible research institutions and effective advocates for native plants."

If you are in the area or are planning a trip to Austin this fall, be sure to mark your calendar and plan a visit to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Linda will be greeting the public with a "Meet the Artist" reception on Saturday, Oct. 18, during the Center's annual Fall Festival Plant Sale. We'll have more details and news regarding this later but couldn't wait to start getting the word out. What a perfect fit: Linda's colorful wildflower paintings and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center !

Update Texas Wildflower Artist Watch “Heart Felt Passion” Goes Live On Bid TV!

Some time on Sunday Bid TV made the decision to use the second of Linda’s Texas Wildflower paintings during their Pick of the Week time slot on their U.K. TV shopping channel. On Tuesday between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. (Texas time) the British TV audience will have their first chance to scoop up one of the 70 watches available through this TV auction. The bids close at 11:17 a.m. (Texas time) so it should be the second item up for bid. (If I finally have Bid TV figured out) You can live stream this auction on your computer if you want by going to Bid.TV and scroll down to the bottom of the page and on the left side click on the live TV streaming hot link under TV listings.

It has always been one Linda’s desires to share her heart felt passion for Texas Wildflowers to an audience beyond Texas and this licensing deal is exposing folks half-way around the world to the sheer joy that this Texas artwork can bring to their everyday life. Most of us are aware that colors effect emotions and this stunning Texas Wildflower painting with its bold use of reds in the background will ignite the passionate and romantic side of any woman lucky enough to have one of these watches for her own. Unfortunately this watch is only available for U.K. residents so far.

However we do have available through Linda’s online store a companion to “Heart Felt Passion” called “Deep in the Heart”. From this painting we offer a line of product ranging from decorative throw pillows, a line of wearable art tee shirts, mugs, coasters and even a beautiful keepsake box. These products are available from Café Press and can be shipped the world over so you definitely want to check it out!

If you would like to see more of Linda Calvert Jacobson’s Texas Wildflower Artwork then just surf over to the Casa De Linda website.

Update On Linda's Watches and the Addition of Several Decorative Home Accents Using the "Field of Dreams" Wildflower Artwork! Now available Online!

David here again. I said I would give an update on how the Bid TV television auction for how Linda’s “Field of Dreams” limited edition watch went. Well both of us made it up in time (4:45 a.m. ugh!!) to get the live online streaming and the few minutes the watch was available went by very quickly. The 35 offered went fast and for a very reasonable price for a limited edition keepsake like this.
The other watches are starting to show up but only on the web so far. As much as I have tried to figure out when and what will show up on the English tele I am still somewhat at a loss. I am going to email a couple from England that were booth mates of ours at the Surtex show in New York this year and see if they can clarify how Bid TV works. If any of you folks from the U. K. are visiting here maybe you would be so kind as to leave a comment on how these auctions work. Even better if a watch buyer could chime in and share their experience with all of us that would be great!

Many of Linda’s wildflower art collectors and friends have been asking about how they can buy one of these watches and unfortunately Bid TV doesn’t ship internationally at this time according to their website.

The good news is that over the last week Linda and I have been working on adding the “Field of Dreams” artwork to our online store and as of this writing several items are ready for purchase for you folks in the U.S. as well as in the U.K. Café Press does ship across the pond so if you would like one of our keepsake gift boxes this would add a very nice touch indeed.

We’ve also added this one to our plush and decorative accent throw pillows . Can’t you see one or more of these dreamy pillows in your bedroom? A brand new item we are offering is our Texas Teddy Bear with the “Field of Dreams" design to commemorate and compliment Linda’s elegant watch. This teddy bear is so cuddly and would really be one of those unique gifts to send to someone special. So have a look at the online store and browse a little. Remember everything comes with a 100% satisfaction GUARANTEE!

Update! Artist-Inspired Ladies Watch up for Bid on Bid.TV Iin the U.K. Again!! Is It Abstract Contemporary Wildflower Art or?

Hi Y'all this is David (Linda's Hubbie:) again and....

Hi to all of you other fans of Linda Calvert Jacobson's incredible Contemporary Wildflower Art!! Linda has just been too busy juggling, camps, classes and P.R. work all the while still creating new paintings of an Abstract but maybe closer to Abstract Impressionism style of floral paintings. What we have been calling her art is The Texas Contemporary Wildflower Series of original acrylic paintings. These large, bold, beautiful pieces of artwork are indeed hard to define.

Her licensing deal in England on Bid.TV continues this Monday July 21st in the 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.(U.K) time slot. That is 5 a.m to 5:30 a.m. for all you art lovers here in Texas. The live streaming is available by following this link for any of you that are brave enough to rise that early to watch it on
That will take you the women's watches section. From there, you can search for "Linda Calvert Jacobson" and it should take you right to Linda's "Field of Dreams" painting made into this elegant ladies watch. On your left you will see the live streaming button. Use the higher speed if you are broadband and the lower number if you are on dial-up. The close is scheduled for 11:22 so if I understand it all and I am not positve I do yet?, but I think I do, you can actually bid on the 35 that are up for sale in this round.You know that this would make one of those unique gifts for that special lady in your life.

I promised you all that I would tell you how the first one went last Monday. Well guess what, I failed by a matter of minutes, but I missed it none the less. I will be up this time and I will give y'all an update on how fast this round goes I promise! I really was too excited for Linda last week and didn't sleep well (until it was too late of course).

As you folks know that are long time readers of this blog I am using words such as abstract, contemporary and abstract impressionism and this is because for all the years that Linda has been creating these happy emotionally uplifting pieces of artwork, we have not been able to define what style they really are other than contemporary wildflower paintings.

Maybe we need to do a survey and see what Linda's art collectors and you the readers of her blog and all her art students have to say. Maybe, just maybe from that we can find the words that best decribes these awe-inspiring pieces of art. I know that Jackson Pollock is an inspiration for her technique and this emotion evoking action art. But the anger or angst of much of abstract impressionism movement is calmly replaced by Linda with joy, hope, and happiness which manifests from the simple pleasure of admiring wildflowers on a rejuvenating Spring day. This is Happy Art not sad, not mad, but glad art.

Enough said already like Linda's has said too many times, wind me up and it hard to get me to stop, but stop I must, so you all can get back to the rest of your day or night whatever it might be, wherever you might be, as you read this and if you get a chance stop by and visit us at Casa De Linda Art in New Braunfels, TX or here on the web at....

P.S. I have more exciting news especially for you art collectors just north of us because.....
Well tune in soon cause Linda and I will be taking a short road trip soon for a one-woman show starring... our beloved Linda. We are both happy about this and I will be sharing news on this latest event coming soon. Its actually events and the good news just keeps coming....stay tuned and see ya soon.

All The Best to Everyone David

Linda's Wildflower Art Limited Edition Ladies watch on Bid TV in the U.K.!!!

Hi everyone my name is David, I am Linda's husband. I am posting the blog for today and will be writing from time to time to share some of the many goings on for my busier-than-ever better half:)

I have wonderful news to share Linda's watch deal in England. Some of her wildflower paintings were licensed for a line of limited-edition, collectible watches earlier this year. And the first is now on sale! Between 5 and 5:30 a.m. US Central Standard Time tomorrow (Monday July 14th) you can watch streaming video on Bid TV of the watch featuring "Field of Dreams." This is an incredibly elegant watch and I bet there are going to be more than a few hubbies if they are smart that will snatch one of these beauties up and make their wives very happy indeed. It has a great romance card that comes with it so maybe the boyfriends need to make note as well so as to keep their girlfriends happy. This ladies watch would make a great gift for any woman is really what I should have said to start with. Not able to watch online to bid? That's OK because you can also go right to the Bid TV website and place your bid there! The auction for this watch is from 11:00-11:30 a.m. U.K. time so lots of housewives will be there if my guess is right! I am so excited and happy for Linda I can barely keep my thoughts and typing in a cohesive manner. I will be up bright and early in the morning to watch this new phase of Linda's licensing dreams come to fruition. Don't worry I will report back tomorrow about the auction and how it all went.

Where did the month of June go???

This is the longest I've gone without posting on my blog since I start it in November of 2005. If you are a regular reader, please forgive me! I haven't forgotten about you! After returning from NYC and FL, I jumped into teaching summer art camps from my Texas studio, along with other projects and activities. Took a break last week from the teaching and did some painting, which felt wonderful. I'll be posting pics later, so be sure to check back. The art camps are back in session now and run weekly through mid-August. If you are in the New Braunfels Texas area and interested in seeing my work in person or enrolling in my classes and camps, just drop me an e-mail at

IN THE NEWS -- Feature on Canyon Lake home includes some of my wildflowers!

Wanted to mention, and link, a feature that ran in the San Antonio Express-News on May 17. The article is about the lovely Canyon Lake Texas hilltop home of Armando and Beverly Garcia. If you look at the photos and read the story you'll see six of my wildflower paintings! Click here to check it out!

Blazing Gavels auction, classes


I like to support worthy causes and KLRN, the San Antonio PBS station, is just that. For the second year, I'm participating in the KLRN Blazing Gavels auction. This year, I'm donating 10 gift certificates, each good for $75 toward a purchase of art or toward art classes/camps at my studio in downtown New Braunfels. They will be auctioned as part of the "one-a-day" promo. Be sure to tune in June 12-21. Click here to read more about the auction and even bid online!


After a short break, I'm ready to start up my classes again. Plus my summer art camps start this coming week as well. I offer a wide range of classes and camps. Here's a news release with more info:

Casa de Linda announces summer art camps, class schedule

Ten new art camps with themes ranging from “Prehistoric Times” to “A World of Design” will be offered at the Casa de Linda Art Studio this summer. Taught by local artist Linda Calvert Jacobson, the week-long day camps will start the first week of June and continue through mid-August.

Jacobson started teaching acrylic painting for children and adults at the New Braunfels Art League in 2003. The following year, she rented a studio space above the NBAL Gallery and began offering summer art camps, in addition to her year around painting classes. She also offers drawing and experimental painting classes.

“Each year I try to offer something new and exciting for my students to experience. I’m really proud of the new projects and topics and I’ve come up with for this summer,” Jacobson says.

Five different art camps are designed for ages 5-9 and for ages 8-13. At the end of each camp, students are awarded a certificate of completion.

This summer, children ages 5-9 can choose from topics such as “In the Garden,” “Down by the Sea,” Let’s Get Buggy,” “Tropical Safari,” and “Prehistoric Times.” Each camp will include drawing assignments in preparation for projects, which range from painting to paper maché. Camps for this age groups are held Monday-Thursday mornings, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

Art camps for children ages 8-13 are planned according to different mediums with each camp including a discussion of famous artists as it relates to the topic. Camps are held Mondays-Thursdays, from 1-3 p.m. with weekly topics that include: “Ready, Set, Draw!,” “Painting - Land and Sea,” “Painting - Experimenting with Color,” “Art in 3-D” and “A World of Design.”

In addition to the week-long art camps for ages 5-13, Jacobson will be offering special 2-week art camps for ages 13-adult this summer. “You can Draw” is scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays, June 9, 13, 16 and 18, from 4-6 p.m. “Experimental Painting Techniques” will be held on July 7, 9, 14 and 16, also from 4-6 p.m.

Jacobson’s ongoing acrylic painting classes will also continue during the summer with the addition of a Tuesday evening class for adults and Saturday classes for ages 10 and up.

“The camps for ages 13-adult and the painting classes for ages 10-adult offer a great opportunity for a parent or grandparent to take the class with a special young person in their life,” Jacobson says. “I’ve had had father/daughter combinations, step mothers with step daughters, and even big sis and little brother. It’s a wonderful way to bond while having a good time learning something new.”

Registration is currently underway. Seating is limited to six students in the painting classes and no more than eight students in the camps. Fees vary. For a full brochure and registration form, contact Jacobson at 830-624-5302 or e-mail

Back from NYC and FL

Thought I had better take a few minutes this morning to blog. I'm posting a couple of photos from my recent trip.


One photo is a shot of yours truly in the Casa de Linda Fine Art Licensing booth at Surtex, May 18-20. This was our third trip to the Big Apple but the first time to exhibit at Surtex. I was also representing 7 other artists at the show this year.


The other photo shows me with Danielle Lanteigne, owner of Leche-Vitrines Art Alliance in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Leche-Vitrines is handling my work for the Florida market and made an appearance there for an artist talk on May 22. Click here for more information on this wonderful contemporary art gallery.


So after the whirlwind, 8-day trip, we are back at home. I'm following up on leads from the show and preparing for summer art camps and classes (if you are in the and would like a brochure, please e-mail me at A nice little surprise when I got article ran in the San Antonio Express-News featuring the home of one of my collectors, Armando and Beverly Garcia.

"Orphan Works" legislation

Many of us in the art community are very concerned over some possible changes to the US Copyright laws. Bills in the House and the Senate are being considered and, should either pass, the result could have far-reaching implications for anyone who creates artwork.

Dear Friends,

Since I didn't get to post much last month, I thought I'd take a few minutes to update you on some the happenings in my life-as-an-artist. This past Friday and Saturday I celebrated the fourth anniversary for my Casa de Linda Art Studio and Gallery in New Braunfels. Had a wonderful Open House, meeting many new folks who were in town for the Texas HOG Rally (that's Harley Owners Group) and for Wein & Saengerfest. Also saw many "old" friends as well. On Sunday I spent a good part of the day packing up art and planning for my upcoming trip, as you'll read below. So here are some highlights for May...


I'm having a one-woman exhibit of my work during the merry month of May at a fab eatery in Austin, Texas...Kerbey Lane Cafe. This will be the South Lamar location. I'll be hanging at least 15 paintings of various sizes. So if you are in Austin, please drop in to see my work on display and enjoy some great food, too!


On May 15 we (that being me and my hubby, David) will be heading to New York City for our third visit and for our third participation in an art licensing trade show. This time we'll be exhibiting in a booth at Surtex. This is a huge trade show, drawing folks from all over the world who are looking for new and exciting art for products. In additional to repping my own work, I'll also be there representing 7 other artists in my booth, Casa de Linda Fine Art (booth #2531, in case you are interested).


And speaking of licensing my wildflower art, I'm happy to announce my latest deal. Three of my paintings have been picked for a line of collector watches that will be sold on UK TV starting in July. I'm one of three international artists to be featured! I've had some great press on this deal, including a write-up on


Another bit of news...I've signed with Leche-Vitrines, an art gallery in Ft. Lauderdale. I'll be making an appearance there on May 22, on our way back for NYC. If you are in Southern Florida, be sure to stop in and see my work on exhibit at Leche-Vitrine.


After the whirlwind trip, we'll be back in Texas by the end of May and I'll be ready to hit the ground running with a full schedule of Summer Art Camps for ages 5 and up and Painting classes for ages 10 and up.

Thanks for reading!

They have it scheduled for the first Saturday of May this year (May 3). It's an all-day event with wine tastings, food and art vendors and ending with a street dance that night.

As you may know, in addition to working on my wildflower series for the international market, I stay in touch with my artistic roots through my teaching. Classes are generally held in my studio/gallery above the New Braunfels Art League. I feel so lucky to be able to share my love of art with others. I'm posting a flier for my latest offerings, ranging from on-going painting classes to drawing to a special Spring Break Art camp. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested. Thanks!

Oh, and I wanted to add that the reception on Sunday at Sattler Artisans' Alley was just wonderful. Large crowd attended. If you were one of those, thanks!!

Monday, January 21, 2008


With the new year comes, perhaps as a sheer coincidence, changes in where my art is on exhibit locally. (By locally, for my dear national and international readers, I'm talking about the New Braunfels/Canyon Lake area, which is sandwiched between San Antonio and Austin in central Texas.) So currently, here's where you can find me...

In New Braunfels, my work is, of course, always on display in my Casa de Linda Art Gallery and Studio. I'm open by appointment, but a good place to start is with my online gallery, then call or e-mail me and let me know what you are interested in. Select peices of my work are also on display in the New Braunfels Art League Gallery. This is a wonderful co-op gallery and is open every day. They have just launched a new-n-improved website so check it out at I have rotated out of Two Rivers Coffee in New Braunfels.

At Canyon Lake, my wildflowers are being featured at a new coffee shop, Cup O' Joe, located north of the lake in Hancock. No website, but you can find them at 18100 FM 306 Suite 120; phone 830-935-4004. Tell them I sent you!

Most timely news for the Canyon Lake area is that both my work and photography by my husband, David, are being featured in a special exhibit at a little gallery in Sattler, appropriately named Sattler Artisans' Alley. It's located at 1381 Sattler Road, next to Super S Foods; phone 830-964-3609.

And if you are in the area next Sunday, Jan. 27, drop by the Sattler Artisans' Alley for our MEET THE ARTISTS reception from 2-5 p.m.

I'm also still being represented at Art, Frame and Beyond in San Antonio (Stone Oak area), Gallery on the Square in Wimberley and have some work in the giftshop at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin.

Hope to see you soon!
