Welcome to Linda Lawler's world!

Hi and welcome! It is finally inauguration day, a day for change and new directions. Please journey with me as I surge bravely into the future and tackle my computer yet again.

My name is Linda Lawler. I am a realist painter and portrait artist living in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

In future posts, I will tell you about my personal journey as an artist and what directions I hope to take in the future. I will talk about art, the art world in general, and the techniques I employ to create my works.

If you are wondering about my blog moniker, be assured I am not so egotistical as to think I only create masterpieces. It simply alludes to the fact that I am not disciplined enough to paint every single day and create a great work of art every single day. And so, I will strive to paint as often as possible with the intent to work towards a great work of art each month. Along the way, I may develop some better work habits and discipline. Along the way, I will learn and along the way, I will pass onto you some of what I learn.


  1. Hi Linda! welcome to blogdom! I'll look forward to seeing your posts, and I'll have to post more myself.

  2. Congratulations on your new blog and gorgeous art work. What a lovely photo of you as well! I'll be blogging this on mine at www.cachibachis.blogspot.com

    are you teaching any new classes anytime soon?
