Local California Artist, Linda Hengst

I enjoy meeting people.  I even like to meet people who do things well.  Then I can brag that I know them.  That makes me a better, more capable person, doesn’t it?  So today I’m going to brag about a neighbor of mine, Linda Hengst.

The Hengsts farm in the Woodlake area. Citrus and stone fruits grow well in this area. These are the views I drive by every day.

My friend, neighbor, and fellow Kiwanian, Linda Hengst, paints and photographs this beautiful area in which we live with passion and perfection.  She has given me permission to share some of her work.  It is on display at the Exeter Courthouse Gallery.  She works primarily in oil pallet knife paintings as well as water colors, pen and ink.  Her works will be up until March 30.

This looks like the drive my husband and I took up the Kaweah River. It looks calm here, but with a little snow and rain…

This is my personal favorite.  I love the colors of the boats dancing on the water.

Which ones did you like best?

    • I like color! Thanks for the comment. Interestingly, my local and history blog on blogger has had more views today than this one. I guess local folks do follow that one. 🙂 Thanks for sticking through my busy times! I have a conference this weekend, and a planning committee meeting in Boston in April, a planning retreat in Los Angeles in April, and a Board meeting in Oakland in May, then my life calms down to a point I won’t recognize it. 🙂


  1. What a blessing to have such talent. I think the one I prefer of the bunch is the 3rd one. I think after this winter I just wanna’ be there taking in nature & enjoying a nice day without cold or snow.


    • That’s interesting. John Muir is one of our heroes in this area. He started the Sierra Club and preservation of this beautiful area. It probably reminded him of Scotland, too. 😀


  2. I agree with your choice of the boats as a fave, although they really are all good. And, I agree about bragging about personal circles of talented people – I like to think that like attracts like! 🙂





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
