Navaho Inspiration 34"x26" Abstract AcrylicLinda Picerno Kalianteris Once summer arrived and my two boys were out of school, I knew I had to keep the momentum going, so I bought a pochade box and started oil painting at the go kart track. It wasn’t long before word spread amongst the Go Karting community, and so began the "motorsport" commissions. I paint a lot of things, and I see every painting as an opportunity to learn and grow and improve. Portraits/ Landscapes/ Still lifes / Motorsport... the subjects change, but my goal is always to find the light, and to use colour and brushstrokes to tell a story within my painting.
