Linda Truman’s love of art and painting has always been a part of her life. In recent years, her passion for the natural world has influenced her work. A slow-learner birder, the process of depicting the behavior and environment of birds helps her to learn, internalize and remember the nuances of these subjects. Many of her paintings show the interaction between man and the environment we share. Her pastels and watercolors are intimate corners of this world, encouraging the viewer to take a closer look at the wealth of life within small spaces. She has won numerous regional awards, most recently winning “Best of Show” with her husband Bob at the 55th Cape May Fine Arts show.
