Red Cap Art by Linda Hubbard. Linda was born in New Hampshire and grew up in Western Massachusetts. She studied art at Westfield State College and the University of Massachusetts. By 1994, she and her family relocated to the Tampa Bay Area. She works in a variety of mediums including: oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, calligraphy, and pastel painting (a combination of watercolor and pastels or oil pastels). She also makes prints from linocuts and woodcuts. Linda enjoys the vibrant colors of Florida including subjects and scenes that bring out the most impressive palettes.
I paint because it frees me to express myself. I see the world as unique. The beginning of my visual interpretation varies with each artwork. It is what spurs me onto the next canvas. There are no mistakes in art. What happens on a canvas or page evolves from my hand and mind. Some designs and compositions develop from the curve of a line or the way water falls. Unusual use of color makes a statement. Watercolor paper can be painted on, but can also be used with mixed media such as pastels, oil pastels, ink, even acrylic paint and green gold leaf. Green is one of my favorite colors because it is versatile, transparent, and vibrant lending itself to the expression of life and light.
The use of light is essential in art. The presence of light illuminates a painting, creating transparency. Depicting light reflects the goal of artists throughout history, particularly the Impressionists. It is my goal to accomplish creating light in my work and to study the effect colors have on light and how certain colors permit light to shine through my painting.
