Ready to Roast, 22″ x 15″ original watercolor painting of a group of baskets filled with chestnuts and a sack labeled “castagne” of chestnuts ready to be roasted, a pretty scene Linda saw when traveling in Italy. Strong shadows and textures add depth and dimension to the piece. The original painting and giclee prints in the same size as the original and half the original size are available.
Linda Abblett’s travels inspire many of her paintings, and her keen eye captures rich textures, emotional content, and more details many of us would miss. In these paintings, Linda lends us her eye and her experience so we can travel the world vicariously, sharing the fond moments she’s had while sightseeing, classic views, scenery, and landmarks in Austria, South Carolina in the United States, Hong Kong, and her favorite destination, Italy, the land of her ancestors.
