Linda Sprinkle

I was always interested in art, drawing in particular, and sketched for many years before I took my first watercolor class from Bob Croskery at the urging on my younger sister in 1982. I loved it (she didn’t) and continued with it for a couple of decades, while working and raising a family. I did show my work decades ago (under a previous surname, at the SAAG Christmas sale and at local restaurants). I put it on the back burner while I was taking my M. Ed, but I was really anxious to get back to it (and reading for fun).

After a feverish and restorative bout of watercolors I decided to try acrylics which I also really enjoyed – with these I went bigger and brighter. But after a bit I wanted to add some other dimension to my acrylics and needed something that could be found in abundance and was of a manageable size. Then early this year during a restless night I had an inspiration. Jigsaw puzzles were the answer! I have since purchased hundreds of used puzzles, most with over 1000 pieces each, and sorted them all. These became my second palette – I paint the image and then overlay it. (They are also varnished.) The most interesting part of these ‘puzzle paintings’ is that you see different aspects every time you look at one. All the pieces are from different puzzles; some have tiny people in them, or eyes, or clocks or words, yet from a distance they look like ‘regular’ paintings. The downside is that they take a lot of time, but in the end, I find them really vibrant and novel.

I still sketch and experiment with other media, but the puzzle paintings are the most unique and still ‘fresh’ to me so I imagine I will continue to focus on these for the next while.
