Linda Besse Again at Leigh Yawkey

Linda Besse Again at Leigh Yawkey


Linda Besse is another WWNAG member to have been selected again for Birds in Art 2002 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum.

The title of the orignal oil painting is Roseate and measures 19.25" X 23.75". It is of a Roseate Spoonbill, native to the southeastern US, especially Florida.

Linda explained a bit about the painting:

"I wanted to create drama ... movie star drama. The roseate spoonbill provides the showy plumage, and the one-word title reminds me of big star names: Marilyn, Cher, Madonna, Britney. As if one word says it all."

The painting was one of 99 accepted for Birds in Art 2002 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art museum, Wausau, Wisconsin. It is also one of only 60 of the works accepted for the Birds in Art 2002-2003 National Tour.
