Dawn Horse (watermedia on paper)
Linda Kay Thomas (Snider-Ward) is the featured artist for April 2014 at the River Gallery.
Linda’s exhibit Enter Equus consists of a new series of paintings created in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed watermedia. As the title indicates, the exhibition is a collection of works with the equine as subject matter.
Linda states “This new series of paintings is about the spirit of the horse, not the actual physical appearance of the horse. I want my art to reach out to viewer and help the viewer feel the beauty of horses. As a horse owner, I am always amazed at the intuitiveness of horses. There is a language between my horses and myself, a quiet language without words where we converse with each other through movement and thought. Their beauty, grace, and intelligence inspire me, and through my art, I hope to share my love and connection with them.
