It’s About Time

It looks like Fall is making a comeback today, and it’s about time! For now, I’m pretty excited about it, as I’m not normally a person who loves the hot summer weather. But check back with me after November 16th when I’ll be downtown at the Holiday Market in Market Square for 36 straight days, bundled up in four layers of clothing and complaining about the cold. First, I just want to say thank you to everyone who visited my new website last week. It was great to see so many positive comments. I just updated the site with all

Linda Barnicott (.com) Got a Makeover!

Hi, it’s Linda! Not me, exactly… but my cyber-self,, had a complete makeover and she is looking fantastic! Yes! After months of brainstorming and hard, detailed work, my new website is finally live. I would love to hear your opinions, so check it out and let me know what you think! It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned my work on the Forbes Hospital History/Community Wall mural. I had the opportunity to meet with the CEO of the Allegheny Health Network last Friday when several of us sat around a table and envisioned the final panel for the

All Santa, All the Time on Etsy

Though we’re just a couple weeks out from Labor Day, my time seems to be filled with Christmas activities! The big news this week is the launch of my brand new Etsy shop – LindaBarnicottArt. I spent much of the last week working together with my assistant Leslie to create. LindaBarnicottArt on Etsy can be summed up as “All Santa, All the Time!” I’ve stocked it with all my favorite gift items and colorful prints. I hope you’ll visit my shop and have a look around. If there’s a piece you particularly like, make it your favorite. As a new

Santa and The Greatest Gift

This has been quite a whirlwind week, in part because I’m still catching up after all my travels. But though it seems like I was on the road forever, I’m done with traveling for a while, and last week I was focused on completing this year’s Jolly Old Elf Series companion print, “Santa and The Greatest Gift.” I’m very excited that we now have six paintings in the series, with four more paintings to go over the next two years. As I’ve planned the five-year series, I’ve experimented with some different concepts for the companion prints. But the fact that

Once Upon a Time

Happy Labor Day weekend… Where did the summer go? As I look ahead to the fall season, I’m remembering one of our family’s favorite end-of-summer activities. Every single year since our children were born, we would pack them up and drive all the way out to Ligonier to visit Story Book Forest. Because we were pretty broke when the kids were growing up, we would go in the afternoon because it was half price after 4:00. Story Book Forest was a magical place. Around every bend there was a new nursery rhyme or fairy tale. The girls really loved the
