Linda Crane               
Artist, Teacher


After retiring from full time teaching  after 33 years, I am fortunate to be able to concentrate on painting as my second career.  I work from both Audubon, PA in the Philadelphia western suburbs, as well as in the Cape May, NJ area. Many of my pastel paintings were started on site, en plein air, and finished in my studio.

I've fallen in love with the rich, intense colors of pastel, as well as the spontaneous nature of the medium. Many of the landscapes include the Delaware Bay and surrounding south Jersey shore areas. The east coast sunsets, lush marshlands, rivers and parks provide endless subjects from which to create colorful paintings.  I will enthusiastically accept commissions for paintings of favorite places, landscapes, pet portraits and house portraits.    


 I hope you enjoy what I have posted so far. Check back regularly for show information and new works. Some of the original paintings are available in limited edition giclee prints.
