Reposting one of my favorite Paintings. 

"Blue Ridge Spring"
9 by 6 inches 
By Linda L Martin

When in my high-school years, there were still places in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia that had not been developed. Wide valley views and  hollows between the mountains, that  held seemingly never ending vistas, unbroken by power lines or roof tops.

As you drove down valley back roads, against the foot hills, small towns with churches schools, general stores and fire departments just seemed to appear around a bend, only to disappear once you rounded the next.

I spent my early college years and, a few years after, riding on mountain trails  through out the valley with friends. My hope had always been to have a place nestled in the valley, with changing seasons and horses that saw you and came to you whether you had a treat or not, just because they liked your company.

Quiet Life and Yard Rabbits

 I recently went through all of my rabbit drawings and chose a few that I thought would be nice to sell.  This was my favorite of all my bunnies. There are still a few left to sell as well. I love graphite and probably have been drawing far longer than painting. For as long as I could hold a pencil. I used to illustrate my notes in history classes all through high school. 

I have a special group on face book in which I  offer some of my work for sale directly to though who like my work and follow my pages. Country Life, Landscapes, Virginia Wildlife, Horses of course and Rabbits. The Group is called MyArt4Sale. You can search it of course.

I  have had to teach on line since October. I do a weekly set of videos for my student. At some point I am probably going to open that up to others. 

I am writing this late so a little tired. For a pandemic there has been no real free time for me... each day just rolls into the next and I haven't seemed to be able  to get everything done. I will talk more about that another time.
