Yes, sir-re-bob, Linda is seen, oftentimes, running between the galleries, businesses and boutiques, during an art event, in all sorts of weather!

“I’m drawn to the vibrant colors of our sunsets and forests to the contrasts of coastal storms.”
“The ever-changing weather and lighting are a constant inspiration.”
“As a lifelong resident of Clatsop County, I still discover new views and perspectives that I love to share through my images.”
“I’m driven to seek out those moments that may be fleeting, so that they can be enjoyed by others.”
The biggest reward is hearing how one of my images sparked a memory or gave the viewer a true sense of “being there”.
