Here I am again, searching for an ideal permanent home for the School of Ideas. I have a lot of paintings that I have accumulated at the School of Ideas on Netherby Road. Plus over the years since 1999 I have curated many art exhibitions and soirees. The only ingredient that was missing over the years was visibility and easy location of my gallery. Besides driving to Nova Scotia this summer which you will read about under the next heading, and that was another reason why I traveled to Newfoundland on eight occasions, besides painting “en plein air” and to look for a new home and art gallery.

“It is with great sorrow that I will miss my best friend and art collector, Rose Rubinoff who died on May 22nd.  She was a great supporter of my work and travels; and she looked forward to my tales of adventure”.


I will be teaching two workshops during Port Colborne’s inaugural Artsweek in August, “Plein Air Painting” & “Colour Theory”.  For information about them go to the following links:

The School of Ideas Quarterly Newsletter
January, February, March 2015

This will not be the last of the Thank you’s I wish to convey to those who helped meon my journey to Newfoundland this past
summer. And if I forget to name you, please contact me and I will profoundly apologize for not acknowledging you. I wish to hugely
thank Rose Rubinoff in London, Ontario who has been one of my greatest supporters. Also, thank you to Rebecca at Nigh’s Chocolate
Shop for presenting me a shopping bag full of chocolates and other delectable sweets to supply me with energy throughout my two month adventure. Thank you Dean for looking after my lawn. Thank you Stacey for your generous nature. Forgive me if I again forgot to mention your name. Contact Me!

Well, again here I am, another winter, working in my studio. Because I heat with wood, and the big wood stove is in the main room
downstairs, I moved my drafting table downstairs from my studio with the art supplies that I will need. I have been painting little paintings of ornamental figures, inanimate objects that I like to look at. I often visit second hand shops in search of objects that catch my interest. I will notify everyone through my website ( http://www.lindahankin.com) when I plan to show the new work. I also ordered two
large wood panels to start two new paintings.
