STUDENTS' WORK SPRING 2013 from Linda Calvert Jacobson's Acrylic classes

Carolyn did a great job with this wall, don't you think?

This was a merging of 3 photos to create the scene in Lina's memory of her friend.

A special request, high school student Dusty painted this for his parents.

Dani, who is still in high school, spent many weeks on this lion.

Lynn was in town for only a few months but was able to finish this and another painting.

Courtney is still in school but has been painting with me for several years, and it shows!

I just love the expression Julia captured in this painting of her dog!

This is one of a set of paintings of Sue's Boston Terriers.

Cathy's first try at roses...and she nailed it!

This was Nikki's first painting, ever! What a great job!

Steve painted this for his daughter. I'm sure she'll love forever!

This is going in a new nursery thanks to her grandmother!

Another painting by Courtney shows how much she has developed.

This painting is huge, 30x40, and Sue captured the beauty of the landscape!

Linda's Adult Student Art, March 2012

A very ambitious project... this 2 foot by 4 foot painting was completed recently by Elaine, a student in the Wednesday morning adult acrylics class. She painted it from a photo for her son. Isn't he a lucky man!

This is a first painting by adult acrylics student Sue. What a good job!

This painting is by Friday morning acrylics student Pat, who loves to paint still life. And she is so good at it!

This is the second painting by Dennis, who attend weekly acrylics for adults. His hard worked paid off with this nice painting!

More photos of paintings by students taking from basic acrylic classes from me, Linda Calvert Jacobson, at Casa de Linda Art Center, New Braunfels, Texas...

Done completely with palette knife, this is large canvas is by Patty, who paints on Wednesday mornings. If you scroll through this blog, you'll find a previous painting she did of Gruene Hall, also in palette knife.

This is lovely little painting by SuzAnne, who paints during the Thursday afternoon adult class. She was working from a photo she took on a recent trip.

This is the first painting by new student Cathy!

What a peaceful scene! Makes you want to tube down the river doesn't it? Vicki did a great job on this painting!

Inspired by the Robert Frost poem, Autumn put many hours into this painting!

Another first painting from a new student, Julieta.

After an introduction to painting in one of our ART-2-Gogh painting parties, Connie decided to join the on-going Wednesday night class and this is her first canvas from that class!

I love showing off painting by my students. The paintings here were completed by students in the adult acrylic classes that I teach weekly at Casa de Linda Art Center. This first one of a horse is by Molly. She has been painting for a couple of years now and has a special love of animals, which is so very evident in this painting. Also check out the chicken she painted that I posted to this blog on Nov. 12, 2010.
The painting below is by Kristi. It's a compiled painting of a landscape she liked with the addition of the bear.
This lovely little hummingbird is by Pat. The flowers are done with a palette knife, giving them extra texture.

Payton is a high school student who attends the Wednesday night adult class. As you can tell from this painting, her FIRST painting by the way, she is serious about art. I just love showing off my students' paintings!
