Linda Flynn – Linda Flynn Art

“My artwork is all about color. I paint with alcohol inks. These inks are a dye based ink that uses alcohol to blend and mix. The finished result is an extremely bright and luminous painting. I paint on ceramic tiles and Yupo paper. These surfaces are nonporous, which allows the ink to remain on top and not saturate into the material. The colors remain rich and vibrant. My paintings are mostly inspired by images from nature. I work from many reference photos and sometimes combine more than one to create more compelling compositions. The colors I choose are more from an emotional response rather than a representational desire. My work encompasses uncomplicated imagery, bright colors, and flowing landscapes. Painting with these inks has introduced a new freedom in my art that I have never felt before. I create more spontaneously and let the ink flow guide me thru many compositions.”
