Barn Painting, Linda Luke

Linda is an internationally recognized fine arts professional. She was raised in Delaware County, Pennsylvania but has lived in many states. The first solo exhibit of her paintings opened on her 21st birthday at the Widener Museum of Art in Chester, Pennsylvania. Her realistic watercolors and oils reflect the Brandywine tradition that surrounded Linda in her youth. Landscapes are her first love and primary subject matter, however, people, animals, flowers and still life are painting subjects as well. 

Linda has enjoyed a long career as a professional artist and has been commissioned by a variety of professional and private clients such as the Hershey Trust, Hilton, Franklin Mint and Sterling Vineyards to do paintings for them of this country, Europe and Africa. These works hang in public and private collections here and around the world. Her largest commission to date has been that of a 98 foot by 7 foot mural on the rotunda ceiling of the Association of Baptists Worldwide Evangelism headquarters in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. The mural depicts 32 different countries where the mission is active. Working overhead, using two levels of scaffolding, it took 5 years to complete this remarkable oil painting. It is open to the public for view by request. 

Linda enjoys her life as a professional artist. She is currently the president of the Annapolis Watercolor Club and enjoys teaching at Maryland Hall. She resides in Annapolis Maryland with her husband Peter. 

Linda often says, “I’m happy when I paint...I hope that shows!”
