Paintings by Linda Cafritz

 Linda Cafritz is an accomplished representational artist who has found her passion in painting abstractly. Her medium is acrylic and some of her new works include collage. She searches for colors as a visual texture.  The strong touches of interactive action appear side by side throughout her canvases. Cafritz's compositions create a dream-like serenity. Blends of heavy elements almost disappear establishing bridges of stripes in geometric fashion. Cafritz is moving the wheel in the direction of her emotions, in a search for a composition that holds one's imagination.
