Linda Jerome

Linda Jerome has been a potter and calligrapher as well as a painter. Her formal training includes a BA in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking from Portland State University. She learned to love painting there, and found it doesn't compare to anything else in her life. When she's painting, she's working on problems of expression and of communication. She is also constantly aware of light and its eff...ects. Evaluating several times during the process of a painting - asking herself what is strong, what is working or not, what needs her attention next -- she often scrubs out areas or just paints over areas if they aren't working well. She also works on 2 or 3 paintings at once, because they may need time to dry, and there are different things going on in each painting that influence the others.

"I look for beauty - every day. In any object or scene, there's always some aesthetic meaning that I can pull out - and I'm asking myself - how would I paint this? I'm especially aware of this, this year. I feel like I've slowed way down in general, and I begin to see beyond the physical objects. Though the subject matter is primarily important, I want to use the entire surface of the panel to be a full harmony. All of the spaces around the subject need to contribute, they have something to say also. The tactile routine of how I paint is something familiar I look forward to, and dedicate myself to. "

Flower Boat #1 Fine Art by artist Linda Jerome - Description: Originally, I made a flower boat following a pattern from a ceramics magazine. It came out well, but when I saw it with flowers, I thought how fun it would be to see a small bird looking out from among the stems.

One of my hobbies is bird watching - mostly at our house. I've become very aware of them, flitting around in our bushes, scratching on the ground and nesting in unexpected places. It's another dimension of gardening that I love. Each of the flower boats I make is unique. Each bird is also unique. Their gesture and positions are based on real types of birds, but I use the glaze generically - using loose strokes because I think it helps with the feeling of the bird in motion.

Birds and flowers are two joys of life that I'm looking to highlight in these Flower Boats. My intent was to make it easy to put flowers, or stems into the holders for a quick arrangement that is appealing and whimsical.
