DALLAS — Linda Cramer, of Harveys Lake, will showcase her display of pastel landscapes and portraits at the Back Mountain Memorial Library in July.
Cramertook drawing lessons as a child, the only formal training she pursued. She has only been creating her artwork for a year and a half after finding the outlet due to a previous thumb injury.
She started drawing as therapy and as a way to work her thumb daily. Cramer states that she sits with prayer each time she is at her easel or drawing board.
“What began as just a path towards therapy quickly developed into a deeper connection to the creator of all things as I realized that the beauty of God is reflected in the beauty of nature and in the faces of those whom I love,” she said.
Cramer has sold pieces to family and friends and hopes to use her home as a studio in the very near future.
