Linda pulls from the 20's and 30's, anything French and locations in the San Francisco Bay Area in this Encaustic Mixed Media series, Floral Follies. We love the super bloom in Portrait of Iris and the unexpected appearance of a squirrel.
From the artist: "I like to create works of whimsy with a strong narrative reflecting both past and present time periods. As an artist, I want to spark an emotional connection with the viewer and begin a conversation. Hopefully, viewers will complete the story, which may have sprung from a single word, with their own story." ~ Linda Benenati
