As a landscape painter, I am captivated by the power of watercolor to convey light. The unique quality of watercolor pigment enables me to create works that balance areas of rich density with spaces of airy luminosity. For some works, as many as 50 washes are applied to achieve this atmospheric quality. Textured watercolor paper combines with these layers, creating a brilliant sense of light.

Equally important to my work is the practice of placing myself in beautiful places, both familiar and new.

Linda Koenig received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lives and works in the hills of rural southwestern Wisconsin.
