I know I am biased as Linda’s husband but “Twilight Dance” still is my favorite of all the artwork she has done over the years. Considering the hundreds of paintings she has done since we were married I think that still says a lot biased or not!

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. In addition to the shopping event, my solo exhibit of 24 wildflower paintings will still be on display in the McDermott Learning Center gallery.

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
