Linda Garcia-Dahle: Oil Painting Demo

August 10 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Artist Biography – Linda Garcia-Dahle

Linda Garcia-Dahle, a California native, is following in the footsteps of her Father and Grandfather. Her Grandfather was an active trompe l’oeil muralist in Los Angeles in the early part of the 20th century. Her Father, when not working to provide for a large family, became an amateur photographer. Both their passion and love for art was fully instilled into her from a young age. One of her favorite memories is sitting with both them in her family’s patio and discussing the best way to work on a painting’s perspective.

Linda earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the California State University at Long Beach, where she found herself influenced by the artists of the Impressionists, Realists and Hudson River School of Arts, who placed much emphasis on light and the emotions it can invoke in a painting. It’s this love of capturing light and its interplay with shadow and color on a canvas to create a mood that drives her work in oil painting. To achieve this elusive light/shadow effect, Linda has continually worked on perfecting an oil painting glazing technique to great success.

Her artwork has won numerous awards over the years. In 2019 she had the honor of being invited by the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation in connection with the Smithsonian Institute to participate in their “Preserving Creative Spaces exhibit”, which featured notable artists from across America in their homes or studios, along with photos of regional artists.

She has had a painting acquired for permanent display at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History for their Bird Gallery and two paintings acquired by the Sasse Museum of Art for inclusion in its collection of work by Southern California artists.

Linda currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Pomona Valley Art Association.
Linda is a member of the Pomona Valley Art Association, the IE Plein Air Painters Society and the International Guild of Realism.
