Arkansas artist Linda Palmer has focused primarily on interpreting and celebrating the varied facets of Arkansas landscapes for the last twenty-five years.  Working with colored pencils and oils, Palmer brings a delicate sensibility to her work that results in powerful compositions based upon elements of nature.  For the last few years, she has been locating, photographing and drawing the Champion Trees of Arkansas.  While working on this project, Palmer also noticed the list of Historic Trees of Arkansas and was interested to find the Courthouse Oak in Hot Springs on that list. Palmer’s drawing “The Courthouse Oak” represents the oak in early spring, before the leaves have come out, in order to showcase the historic courthouse.  Palmer is a Signature Member of The Colored Pencil Society of America and her artwork has been consistently accepted in state and national juried exhibitions.  She has exhibited in the United States, Germany and recently in China.  You may view her art at 800-B Central Avenue, Hot Springs, or http://www.lindawilliamspalmer.com.
