"We would like to thank you for the fabulous art work, which has finished off our new kitchen in style. Everyone who has seen the mural thinks it is indeed like looking through a window on Tuscany. We would probably run out of superlatives, but the mural is rich, sumptuous, a feast for the eyes - and we find something interesting to focus on each time we step into the kitchen. Your service from ordering, through packing to delivery was exemplary. We would absolutely recommend your work to anyone considering it". Pauline and Mel Owen
"Linda's artwork is so original and unique. I spent hours online trying to find a warm Tuscan feeling, one that had really deep, rich colors. Maybe it is the egg tempera, or Linda's fabulous designs, but either way, the mixture is perfect! Furthermore, the quality of the work product is exquisite. The tiles arrived extremely well packaged in several layers of shipping materials, they are sealed to perfection, and labeled for easy installation. My wife and I installed in about two hours and had a great time doing it! Priced right, looks incredible, I am a totally satisfied customer. Look for my next order this summer! Pedro M. Fairfield"

I also make my own acrylic paint in the same manner. By adding pure pigment to a acrylic polymer. I can add thing like crushed mica , metals and pearlescents to make the painting come alive.
In my still life/landscape paintings, like to juxtapose sculpted bas-relief products of nature (the chunky part) against soft impressionist landscapes of their origins.
I do not paint from photographs. Rather, I collect vignettes and ideas from different things that inspire me and then in my mind I will put them together into a painting.

This is the story of Linda Paul's artistic journey: Linda Paul was an urban planner and developer in Ontario, Canada. She married and immigrated to the United States in the early 1990's and found herself without a green card. With boundless time on her hands, she spent many hours walking the beaches in the San Francisco bay area. She would pick up pieces of dried seaweed and examine their shape. Deciding the sea plants looked like people, she decided to haul some home and paint faces on them. If this sounds very childlike, it was! Having painted the faces, she needed something to stick the seaweed people in. Some plaster should do it. Then needing to paint the plaster, she bought some basic kindergarten powder in dark blue, and voila, her first piece of art was born. It really looked like something a six year old child had created, but it was exactly this innocence and complete freedom that led her on. Liking the texture of her first "creation" , her brain thought, "I wonder what some plaster carrots would look like on a board. Off to the lumber yard for plaster and the grocery store for carrots! Her second piece was called "Flying Carrots" (see below) Something in her mind just opened up like a tidal wave and she was smitten with creating. Liking the vegetable theme, she created three more sculpted vegetable pieces and boldly entered them in an art juried art show in Burbank , California. She knew right there that this was to be her new path in life.20 years later, Linda Paul is now an internationally recognized and collected painter and artist
