Plein air painting on the rim!
A Westerner her whole life, Linda Glover Gooch grew up in the warmth of the Southwest.  Spending time as a child playing in the orchard groves, washes and arroyos of Southern California, Linda developed a love of the desert and canyons.  While she is the first professional painter in her family, both of her parents and her grandmother were amateur artists.  Painting since her early teens, Linda embraces the vast canyons that stretch across the West. Multiple trips and many hours on location bring new inspiration as each day reveals different light and weather conditions. Working on location rejuvenates Linda as she admires the beauty of the land and acknowledges God as the divine creator of all.  The grandeur and ever-changing moods of the Southwest are a constant source of study and an important part of her continued growth as an artist.
