Linda Kimble’s Paintings on Display at Westgate

By | Art | No Comments

Austin artist Linda Kimble’s paintings are on display at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate, now through November 5.

It Became by Linda Kimble

Born and raised on an Iowa family farm, Linda Kimble gained an appreciation for landscapes, animals, and nature. When most saw cattle and grain fields, she saw colors and textures. Her unique vision and entrepreneurial spirit propelled her toward studies in art and business. She worked for and started several business ventures, some of which she continues to operate with her husband. Art, however, has been a consistent, life-long passion.

Sky by Linda Kimble

As an avid runner, including eight marathons, Linda continues to draw inspiration from landscape and scenery. A recent series, Austin Asphalt, incorporates pavement markings she discovered on the streets of her neighborhood. Compositions in nature often inspire her colorful and organic abstracts.

Sweet Like Candy and Sweet Like Candy Too by Linda Kimble

In addition to numerous private collections, Ms. Kimble is featured in several San Antonio office buildings including Bank of America Plaza, Union Square I & II, McCombs Plaza, Airport Center, and the recently opened RidgeWood Plaza.

Nourish your body and feed your soul with delicious comfort food and fun cocktails surrounded by original art! You can view more of Linda Kimble’s paintings at http://lindakimble.com.
