My friend and former professor, Linda Calvert Jacobson, has a one-woman show of her original paintings at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin. Congratulations!
I am so happy I got an original work from her when I graduated from college. I still have it sitting happily in the living room. It's in a place of honor - on the entertainment center that I face every day!
She teaches art classes, too. But I never got art instruction from her. She taught me how to write a newspaper article in Associated Press style. Amazingly, despite becoming a librarian, I still use that skill in writing press releases. Thanks, Linda!
If you're looking for Christmas ideas, she also has an online shop you can peruse.
