Linda McCarthy uses the power of color as an important aspect of the way her work portrays the dreams and reality of life through images both real and imagined. Her work often uses nature to portray the darkest and brightest moments in life… the forcefulness and tranquility of water and wind, the everchanging light and motion of all living things. Her large acrylic and oil paintings explore our feelings about what we see, sometimes giving you just a hint of reality and letting your eye or your imagination fill in the rest. She is a member of many local Art Associations including Branford Arts and Cultural Alliance, Madison Art Society, Clinton Art Association, Guilford Art League, Shoreline Arts Trail and Lyme Art Association. Her work has been shown in many local juried shows and galleries throughout Connecticut. Linda’s paintings are currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
