Tile murals of France by American artist Linda Paul.
Artist's Inspirations: This artwork was inspired when I last traveled to a small island in France called Isle de Re. A magical place of wind swept fishing villages and cottages. Hollyhocks of every color thrived in the salt and sand. Bikes, donkeys and roosters were everywhere on the island that seemed to take a step back in time.
Linda Paul:Artists Statement:When asked What is your favorite painting, I always say, the next one I am going to paint! Style: I don't paint in any one style, I let inspiration speak to me and I go with the flow. My work runs the gamut from chunky realism to abstract and impressionist painting. I use many different mediums to create my artworks. One of my favorites is egg tempera which I make by crushing stones and minerals and adding egg yolk. Blues come from crushed lapis lazuli, greens from malachite and natural green earth found around Verona Italy. This medium is luminous and lasts for centuries.I also make my own acrylic paint in the same manner. By adding pure pigment to a acrylic polymer. I can add thing like crushed mica and pearlescents to make the painting come alive. Lately I have also been working with glass and precious metal like silver, copper and 23 karat goldArtist's Inspiration:I am inspired by so many things! I especially like nature in all her forms. I like concepts, process and abstract ideasIn my still life/landscape paintings, like to juxtapose sculpted bas-relief products of nature (the chunky part) against soft impressionist landscapes of their origins.
