LINDA GLOVER GOOCH
PAINTING THE GRANDEUR

goochstudio.com

 

Linda not only recognizes  the grandeur of the creation that surrounds us everywhere, she has honed the mastery of transforming that expanse and grandeur onto canvas.   The art world has taken notice as featured in Southwest Art,  Art of the West, Plein Air  .  From her home base in Mesa, Arizona Linda has the vast landscapes of the Southwest from which to gain inspiration. She often uses moody and emotional tones with dramatic hues and visual dynamics that come with cloudy or stormy weather, which infuse her compositions with energy.  The tempestuous scenes also conjure perceptions of movement and expectation.  Naturalistic yet expressive, her canvases exhibit a range of textures and brushwork that conspire to build dimension among the composition’s planes.

A signature member of the Oil Painters of America and a master signature member of American Women Artists, 

she cites such artists as John Singer, Sargent, Anders Zorn, and the Russian Impressionists as influential on her painting style. 

She continues to share her gift and enthusiasm by teaching workshops across the country including as a regular instructor at Scottsdale Art School.  She has a passion for emerging and developing artists and has refined effective techniques for helping students advance their skills and ways of "seeing" and advancing in just a few days.
Working on location rejuvenates Linda as she admires the beauty and acknowledges God as the divine creator of all.    Linda is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America. Represented by Illume Gallery West, Montana; Mary Williams Fine Art, Boulder Colorado; Sorrel Sky Gallery, Durango Colorado; Mountain Trails Gallery of Sedona Arizona.

The school is an approved atelier with Art Renewal Center, the only vetting service in the world for classical art schools. Its program is an in depth planned course of study, with option to receive a certificate for 1-4 years, (roughly 500 or so hours per year).   This is an opportunity for a very thorough, extremely solid foundation in classically trained art.  This kind of studio apprenticeship is referred to as classical atelier study.   It is a highly respected and time honored way to learn to draw and paint that is passed on and imparted by classically trained artists.
