  • Series of the Day: Linda Donaldson's
    "Vanished Civilizations" Series. Says the artist of these fascinating works:
    "I first visited Stonehenge in my 20’s, on a chilly October day. It was before a parking lot, a gift shop, and roped-off areas had been introduced, and I was able to park beside the road and wander around the site by myself. It was the first time that I felt the pull of a civilization remote in time from my own. I could sense the immense effort it took to move huge stones across the Salisbury Plains and to erect them in a precise place and pattern. But, much about the people who built Stonehenge was – and remains -- unknown. Since then, I have enjoyed visiting other locations where human structures reveal a way of life both familiar and mysterious. The paintings in this series are of four such places:
    -- Stonehenge, a Neolithic site in England, used for centuries, whose stone circles were probably built between 2600-2400 B.C.E.
    -- Petra, a site in Jordan. Once a city that thrived on a major trading route between 312 B.C.E. and 106 C.E., Petra later declined until it was abandoned in 663. My painting is of the Treasury, the most famous structure in Petra.
    -- St. Simeon, a ruined Coptic Christian monastery near Aswan Egypt. St. Simeon was occupied between the 11th and 13th centuries. My painting is of a doorway leading to an open courtyard.
    -- Machu Picchu, the famous Inca mountain-top city in Peru’s Sacred Valley. It was occupied for only 100 years, from 1450. Why it was built and then abandoned remains uncertain, but the power of this site to fascinate modern visitors is undeniable."
    All works in series are Oil.
