Hardcover Book. 11" by 12" by 1"  200 pages. 100s color photos. First Edition Book By Carolyn Robbins and Linda Carter Holman

From her birth in a small town in Oklahoma, childhood in Venezuela, and adult life spent in a variety of locations in the Southwest and California, self-taught painter, Linda Carter Holman has been inspired by places both actual and imaginary. Her gift for creating characters in settings that celebrate life is evident in all phases of her painting. Observing a painting by Carter Holman is like opening the pages of a good book filled with colorful characters and descriptive narrative. In late 2000, Linda became a writer and director when she began working on her book entitled Evolution of a Self-taught Painter. The book includes a retrospective overview of her 35 years of work. It also tells the story of her life and how she became the painter she is today. Linda is shown heralding in a new phase of work, reaffirming the value of self-expression, and being afforded the opportunity to share her experience with others. To inspire and be inspired has become her motto. Evolution of a Self-taught Painter is a beautiful portrait of a painter from the heart land of America. The National Museum for Women in the Arts hosted the 2006 Independent Book Publishers Awards Ceremony, which awarded Lindas book an honorable mention, recognizing excellence in independent publishing with emphasis on innovation and social relevance. Today after 38 years of practicing the art of painting, Linda continues to draw on her life experience and vivid imagination to create canvases that speak of abundance, harmony, and good spirits.
