OLD SAYBROOK — Linda Beagle, a long time resident of Madison, started painting after receiving a paint by number set when she was a child. When the painting was done, there was paint left over and so started a love affair with drawing and painting. Eventually she went to Southern Univ. to become an art education major. Although finances prevented her from finishing college, she continued to pursue her hobby and became an artist member of the Clinton and Madison art societies until going back to work full time.
Now retired, she again has started painting and displaying her work. She is currently a member of the Clinton, Madison, Lyme and Guilford Art Leagues and enjoys getting together with other seniors who, like her, have time now to express themselves. Beagle currently teaches a class at the Estuary Senior Center on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. called the Marshview Artists.
Meet Beagle at the Marshview Gallery Artist Reception on Friday, March 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Estuary Council of Seniors, 220 Main St, Old Saybrook. All are welcome. Light refreshments are served.
