“Coming and Going” by Linda Daly Baker
“Capturing the extraordinary light that transforms a subject almost to abstraction is a main objective in creating my watercolors. My love of white and the soft nuances of gray along with the richness of earth tones make up my subtle palette” says artist Linda Baker. As a full time artist, she creates originals, reproduces a line of giclees and has two instructional videos available through Creative Catalyst Productions, along with jurying and teaching workshops both nationally and internationally.
