Linda Wacaster

 
Midlothian, Texas

Artist's Statement

Linda Wacaster is a contemporary photo realist artist whose passions for life and art are vividly seen in her colorful canvases. Painting animals enables her to capture the true feeling of being in the majestic presence of a splendid creature.


Linda has a rather unusual background style, which gives a sense of depth and richness.
Linda probes the "corners of the animal's world". A log that's fallen in a stream used as a passage for a mountain lion, a field for buffalo grazing, a wooded area for elk are more than just isolated areas. They represent fragments of lifetimes that are tied to a broader, universally, shared humanity. Much of her reference material is gathered on various trips to Wyoming, Colorado and Montana. An extensive reference library of photographs, field sketches and notes provide her with material to create her paintings of favorite subjects such as songbirds, raptors and North American mammals in their natural habitat.

"Whether on location or in the studio working from photos, I feel the sounds, smells and energy surrounding me are almost as important to the creative process as the visual subject", says the artist.

"Spirit of the West"

oil on canvas

While on a photo shoot in Nemo, Texas I captured this shot of the land surveyor.  He was actually standing on the top of a washed out river bank, but I wanted him to appear to be on the top of a mountain. So, I substituted a scene that I took in New Mexico.

Dimensions: 30"H x 24"W
$2,000 framed

"Buffalo Crossing"

Oil on canvas

While on a trip to Yellowstone I came across a lone buffalo out in the water. I knew this was a special scene and when I got the photo back I saw that the ripples in the water made a great compositional lead through the piece. Buffalo are such massive and mysterious animals I just had to paint him.

Dimensions: 24"H x 30"W
$2,000 framed/unframed

"Rattles to Reins"

Oil on canvas

While on a photo shoot in South Dakota I captured this special moment of an Indian with his child. He was teaching him to hold the reins while at the same time holding his rattle. This was just a touching moment taking his child from rattles to reins.

Dimensions: 34"H x 26"W
$1800 framed

"Bear Cub"

Oil on cnvas

This painting was from a photo I took at Animals of Montana. I was studying with Carl Brenders and during the workshop we went to a one day photo shoot. The flowers were not in the original photo. I added them to remind me to take time to smell the flowers.

Dimensions: 20"H x 20"W
$1200 framed
