Linda Mews– Artist Statement

Linda Mews’ art begins with a tug on the heart. Icons … of our past, our heritage. Old trucks, tractors, grain elevators, windmills … part of history that created our world today … most forgotten …

Using color to share and communicate the feelings these icons of our past create in her, Linda’s intent is to share those feelings in a way words cannot. Like so many from earlier times ..ignored because they are not new .. not shiny .. not fast … these work horses … trucks, tractors and people .. shaped and created our world .. preserving it for generations to come … Let’s celebrate these icons. With stories .. written and painted.
