Lynda McDonald bio:

As a child growing up in Kansas, I started drawing in elementary school but formal art training was never offered. I took lessons from local artist Joan Daugherty in the 80's and sold most of my work at local art shows but gave up painting until several years ago when a friend insisted that I try it again for fun during retirement. The excitement of painting again has created some unusual mixed mediums with unique results. The love of oil painting is still my favorite but I continue learning different styles, including watercolor and encaustic wax. I recently studied basic watercolor with Susan Gardner and advanced acrylic studies with Deborah Crane-Foot. Also studied oil with Colley Whisson of Australia, at an Atlanta Workshop. Experimenting with mixed media, hot and cold wax, gold and silver leaf, etc. has been fun and exciting.
