Fountain at Pinewood

Piece description from the artist

This painting of the frog fountain Pinewood Estates in Lake Wales, Florida is awash in beautiful tropical foliage. Pinewood Estates is part of the Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales. The garden sits atop the highest elevation in Florida, Iron Mountain. I visited there many times and attended concerts there near the "singing tower." I love the famous Bok quote, "Make you the world a bit better and more beautiful, that you have lived in it." Bok was the founder of Ladies Home Journal, and coined the phrase, "Living Room." He was a winter resident at the nearby exclusive, Mountain Lake Club in Lake Wales. The gardens were designed by the Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. the son of the designer of New York's Central Park, the Mall in Washington, and Biltmore Gardens. It is one of the wonders of Florida.

About Linda Kegley

Clearwater, FL

Linda Kegley moved to Florida from Lexington, Kentucky where she was an active member of the arts community, calligrapher, graphic designer, and owner of LK Artworks, an advertising and graphic design business. She lives in Clearwater, not far from the water.
An award-winning artist, she has created commissioned pieces for scores of clients, some as far away as Japan. Her “Don't Drink Like a Fish ™” series continues to evolve with new situations, fish, patterns, and themes. She has created over 300 paintings in this series, and the “fish” are now living all over the World. They now include Girlfins™ and Bestfins™.
“I love the tremendous fun of creating art, and will always lean toward the whimsical, funky style and subject matter that make people feel happy and smile. My goal is that you connect with the freedom, color, and energy of my work. If I can transport the viewer to a happy world for a few minutes, then I have achieved my goals. I like to think of my paintings as a run through the water sprinkler on a hot summer's day. I believe that the desire to surround oneself with happy art is universal.”
We have been lifelong sailors -with a love of the sea, beach, and ocean's treasures! Living near the coast in Clearwater, Florida, I find much inspiration from the Gulf of Mexico, fabulous water birds, and tropical foliage. Some of the series of paintings I have created (Coral Reefs, BestFINS, GirlFINS, and Drink Like a Fish) are reflections of my love of the sea and beach lifestyle.
About commissions:
"I hope to create a piece that will bring joy and become a point of pride in the homes of my collectors. My goal is to take your idea and give it life. An unexpected, large-scale piece in a space can command attention and be the perfect finishing touch."
