Linda Walraed, who owns a vacation home in Callalantee in Johnson County, is an artist who paints en plein air, a French term for in open air. According to Walraed, the flowers she paints came from seed she cast out in the spring.
“With the rains we have had, our flower garden has certainly produced gorgeous flowers and put on a grand show. We have many butterflies, bees and birds that visit the garden daily,” she said. “I am painting in an impressionist style of cosmos, spider flowers and zinnias. My dog, Tiffany Rose is a constant companion and loves to go out on location with me.”
Her favorite medium is oils using panels.
