Golden Freedom, Acrylic by Brenda Kindley

Brenda is a self taught artist from North Carolina who moved to Florida in 2003 and now resides in Sarasota.  She grew up on a family farm which inspired her to paint landscapes, old homes, mountain scenes, tobacco barns and interesting things in nature.  Her favorite medium is acrylic, however, she is also accomplished with charcoal and pencil drawings. After winning an art award in High School, she broadened her fan base and sold paintings in France, Germany, Mexico and Spain. She enjoys painting on many surfaces from hand saw blades to a large fresco in an old historic church in North Carolina.
