Artists Do Lunch

It was my great pleasure to finally meet landscape painter Linda Blondheim today. I've been a follower of her blog for a long time, and she is just as articulate, wise and generous with her vast knowledge of all things art in person. Joining us was my good friend, artist Jackie Schindehette. Both Jackie and Linda are Florida landscape painters, however, their style of painting and approach is so distinctly different. Check out their blogs to the right. And...both are terrific marketers of their work so you can imagine the exchange of ideas, suggestions and brainstorming that was bantered about over lunch. How refreshing to be in the company of real pros making a living with their art careers.

After lunch, we headed over to the FTBOA to view the equine art exhibit.

Linda lives north of Gainesville, so we all agreed to meet again - this time in the Tally Ho wagon of the Misty Morning foxhunting club!

What a great quote. (Again)
Since I read your blog and Lindas' regularly, I feel like some friends just got together.

Linda puts together a most incredibly informative and generous blog and I always love reading her words and seeing how they reflect back into her paintings.

I'm guessing you had a great time together.

Bonnie: Linda is ever generous sharing art related information on her blog. Sometimes it feels like taking a workshop for free!

And have you ever tried her recipes? All delicious winners. Another bonus.
