TransplantBuddies Globe Hands of Life was designed by Linda Mate' WATER COLOR Christmas 2007,
Linda worked for hours under a black light to paint this beautiful picture.
"Hi Rise', I'm so glad you like the picture. I feel as though all of us hold each other and guide each other through all the trials of our disease process. The support and knowledge we gain is truly a gift to help us through like none other.
As I stated before, I dream about these paintings. This one was painted for you."
About Linda M
I have been interested in drawing, painting, and charcoal mediums for many years, but have just recently, in the past 3 years, really begun to create in earnest. My art is created in dreams before it is attempted on canvas or paper and inspired by some cultural beliefs depicted in some of the artwork in Native American form. These represent spiritual and totem stories based on many tribes. Some in respect of my own heritage in the Cherokee Nation influence. I am also fascinated with Fairies, Nature, and Animals. My final love is Angels, not so much in the spiritual sense,but the love of the beauty of wings and movement in heavenly form. I have done many personal portraits of both loved family pets, and people. If interested, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a vocalist, songwriter who has toured several times with rock groups in the 70's and 80's. I have also toured with an african band called African Rain, for 4 years working with grand master drummer Babatunde Oletunji where I learned to play the djembe drum. I now currently am singing with a local band, Jack Knauer and friends and work with other vocalist in studio recordings and teaching when able. My band can be heard at uselessmusic.net and also on Youtube.
