Linda Tuma Robert­son

Western Art Collector - - ARTIST FOCUS -

Linda Tuma Robert­son has a re­newed en­ergy, en­thu­si­asm and ded­i­ca­tion af­ter hav­ing been forced to slow down the past few years be­cause of an ill­ness. “I have heard that ‘good things come out of bad things,’ which was ev­i­dent in this si­t­u­a­tion since it al­lowed me to re­flect on my art,” she says. “I came to the con­clu­sion that I want to paint no mat­ter what. Painting is syn­ony­mous with who I am. My goal is to bring at­ten­tion to God’s cre­ations, show­ing its spir­i­tual qual­ity and sim­plic­ity of life which pro­vides true hap­pi­ness.” Land­scapes are the sub­jects Robert­son is most in­spired by, and she would rather be in the mid­dle of na­ture than any­where else. “The con­stantly chang­ing moods of the land cre­ate a kalei­do­scope of sub­jects,” she ex­plains. “My de­sire is to en­trap a fleet­ing mo­ment in time and make it the ba­sis of my painting. My in­spi­ra­tion can be color, light, or some­times, some­thing that can’t be ex­plained ex­cept through a painting.”

Robert­son is rep­re­sented by As­to­ria
