A few comments for people who own original paintings by Linda Calvert Jacobson...
“The work of art was an excellent (anniversary) gift. It hangs in our dining room and really makes an awesome impact on not only this room, but our entire house. We will continue to cherish your painting as it really brightens my day every time I look at it. We look forward to purchasing more of your work in the future.”
“The paintings are a spectacular addition to our home. Your love for the wildflowers is clearly projected through your art. Your work is simply captivating. Thank you for sharing and bringing an unexpected glimpse of happiness into our lives.”
“I have been a huge fan of my friend Linda's art for 16 years. My collection includes six of Linda's paintings from various stages of her career with the most recent acquisition being DAY’S END, featuring a field of wildflowers at sunset. In addition to being a very talented and prolific artist, she is an amazing person. Her work adds warmth and beauty to my home as Linda radiates warmth and beauty to the world.”
“Your painting brings me joy everyday. It brightens up the room it is in and brightens up my life whenever I look at it. It truly seems like it glows with life. It could be called ‘pretty’ but that seems such a tame word compared to this painting — this painting is like a fresh bouquet of flowers.”
“I am thrilled to own two paintings from your Wildflower Series. I have long admired your work, and now I have two of my own! They hang where everyone is able to enjoy the fun, happy vibes that they produce. I believe your art serves as a reminder that we all need to smile and enjoy those little things that we have been blessed with. Thank you for sharing your passion with the rest of us.”

“I love the vibrant colors in your wildflowers, especially in the painting I picked out. It hangs in my guest room, which is painted a soft pumpkin color, and the flowers just pop off the canvas. Even my parents, who have traveled all over the world, raved about it and complimented me on the way that painting brightened up the room when they stayed in the there during a recent visit. I know I'll enjoy it for years to come. Thank you.”
“From the first time I saw the photo in the newspaper of Spring Medley, I had the strongest feeling it was just what my wife and I had talked about for our formal dining area. We had been looking for just the right painting for a long time. I'm so glad and thankful for your willingness to make the effort to bring several of your works to our home. We see and share the light, joy, hope, and optimism in the colors and vibrance of your wildflowers. Great talent.”

"We bought your painting as our anniversary gift. We just love it and decided to hang it in our kitchen. Your flowers in the painting are one of the first things we see each morning when we walk into the room -- what a wonderful way to start the day! The vibrant colors in your flowers have a way of putting the spring into our home, even on the coldest of days. When I was looking at all of your different paintings for my daughter's birthday present, I had quite a time deciding on which one to choose -- your color combinations are so beautiful on each and every one of your works. You have a wonderful talent!"

“What room in our house has no windows and was under-decorated? My husband and I have spent endless hours in our drab utility room doing laundry and various other projects. When I saw Linda Jacobson’s 12- by 12-inch Wildflower paintings, I knew they would brighten this room and they do. I smile every time I enter the utility room as I view these three, colorful Wildflower paintings behind the washer and dryer. Linda’s art filled a special need in our Hill Country home.”
"I have several of the wildflower series and have them placed in an arrangement in my previously dull hallway and in the home office. They are commented on by nearly everyone who passes them and add joy and whimsy to the hallway. The paintings make me smile every time I look at them, which is often. I love the way they make me feel. Even my husband, who isn't really a flower kind of guy, loves them."
“I am honoured to have your stunning artwork in its original form. The bright and beautiful colours draw a big smile on my face. I am absolutely certain that your work will be a success in every way.”

“I have just purchased your watch, Field of Dreams, from the shopping channel and I wanted to say it’s gorgeous. I hope one day I’m in a position to purchase a painting. They’re beautiful.”

"Linda's work brings a fresh, energetic twist to the every day floral painting. The bright, vibrant colors are a perfect supplement to the intense, sun-filled rooms of South Florida. The paintings are at first a chaotic mix of colors and shapes then they come into focus and you're standing in the middle of a rainbow field filled with flowers."
— Danielle Lanteigne, former gallery owner, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
“Central Texas is known for its wildflowers, and Jacobson’s WILDFLOWER TAPESTRY shows it in all of its glory! She uses a wonderful control of yellows and violets to create a vibrancy that is exciting! Love the deep, rich background at the bottom and graduation up. Visual excitement! ”
