Linda works in a series of ideas- bridges, city scenes, reflections of wet streets that are full of texture and color.
“For me, I will always choose color.” Vincent Van Gogh
Linda Dragonette does both. Her style has changed over the years. She has now embraced and is excited by Abstract Expressionism, which she paints in oil. Linda works in a series of ideas- bridges, city scenes, reflections of wet streets that are full of texture and color. She has adopted a more contemporary style of painting with loose brushwork and palette knife. And COLOR.
Having lost the majority of her vision due to a hereditary eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa, Linda has had to change how she paints many times. Changing mediums as her eyes have changed, from watercolor to ink and pastel, she now paints exclusively in oil. It is a challenge she has accepted and learned from.
Linda Dragonette’s work is in private and corporate collections. Her paintings have been sought after and used by the movie industry. She was chosen by The Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Coca-Cola Company as the2014 Arts Partner. Linda created the painting, ‘Birds of a Feather,’ which was auctioned at the annual RMHC fundraiser in Chicago and reproduced into prints for fundraising use by all of the Ronald McDonald Houses in the United States and Canada.
