The power of color is an important aspect in Linda McCarthy’s way of portraying the dreams and reality of life through images both real and imagined. Her work often uses nature to express the darkest and brightest moments in life, like the forcefulness and tranquility of water and wind, and the ever-changing light and motion of all living things. Her large acrylic and oil paintings explore our feelings about what we see, sometimes giving just a hint of reality and letting your eye or your imagination fill in the rest.
Linda’s work has been shown in many local juried shows and galleries throughout Connecticut. She is a member of art associations in the area including the Branford Arts and Cultural Alliance (BACA), Madison Art Society, Clinton Art Association, Guilford Art League, Shoreline Arts Trail, and Lyme Art Association.
