Artist’s Statement for LINDA LOEBS—
“This year I’m once again compelled to paint images I capture while driving about the Central Coast. I’m truly amazed by this beautiful area we live in. No matter how many times I travel the same road, I get to see something different. It’s not that the land changes much, but between the changing seasons, light, and weather, the already seen becomes the newly discovered.
“I see so many visually stunning places that I couldn’t possible remember them all, so I use a camera. I’m not much of a photographer; my photos are used as a tool for me to capture a vista for memory’s sake. I can’t use the camera to capture what my heart feels when looking at a beautiful sky or landscape; I don’t have that skill. It’s up to me as an artist to translate those photos into something more, into something that speaks from my heart to yours; to find that “sweet spot”, that part of the landscape that makes me think that I can’t wait to paint this and capture this moment and place in time.
“There is such a visual bounty of natural, simple beauty in the world around us. I want to capture some of that world in my paintings and share it with you.”
