Local Artist Renews Chamber of Commerce Membership

#blogboost #Woodlakevalleychamber Day 26 Ultimate Blog Challenge

Do you belong to your Chamber of Commerce?

Local artist, Linda Hengst, joined the Woodlake Valley Chamber of Commerce in September 2015 and renewed this September.

So what?

The “so what” is that the Chambers of Commerce exist to get the word out about community businesses and support the community to make it better.

So today I’m going to brag about my friend, neighbor, Kiwanian, and Chamber member, Linda Hengst who paints and photographs this beautiful area in which we live. She gave me permission to share some of her work.

Linda’s art brags about our beautiful the foothill communities near the Sequoia National Park.

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.

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…

Flowers inspire Linda.

I don’t know where Linda found this rose, but it could be one of the beautiful 217 varieties of roses in the Woodlake Botanical Gardens.

Linda likes boats.

She paints when she travels as well.

Linda’s husband, Robert Hengst, has lived in this area for generations. They often go to a cabin in the mountains and hike where she can paint her favorite views.

Kaweah Lake sometimes fills with life-giving water, and at other times you see the high water lines and the trees that grow under the water. Linda shares local stories as well as pictures of the area.

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

Most of the time when I visit Linda, I come away with something. Look what I found this time.

  1. Hi M – I like linda’s work a lot and the one you bought is fun!
    She is very talented and the down view of the boats was a nice surprise amidst the scenic ones – and you describe her work so well!

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.
