  • Lina Tharsing

    Thanks for sharing my work!

  • Charlie

    I love her paintings!

  • Sheryl

    Interesting. That last one is actually a painting of a museum isn’t it? neat. I like the value scale… They feel like “dead layers” to me.. but, i understand that everyone finishes at their OWN pleasure, yknow? Lina, these are great.

      Sheryl, this series of paintings are all based on real photographs of the American Museum of Natural History when they were constructing their dioramas. The last image is an install shot of the show. Thanks for looking :)
