See Beyond the Flesh to Your True & Inner Soul

Your Soul Portrait…
Reminds you just how beautiful you are and how rare your journey is.
Celebrates the self you have known or felt dwell within you, but kept hidden from the world.
Keeps you focused on all that is positive about being you.
Allow Linda to paint a portrait of everything about you that you can’t see with your eyes.
In 2013 take a step toward accepting all you have to offer.
How is your Soul Portrait created?
Working from just a photo, images come forth to Linda with ease. Using her keen intuition and empathic gifts, she senses the path around you as she paints a message from your soul. What wonderful message does your soul wish for you to accept about yourself? These make perfect gifts for that hard to buy for person, too.
Soul Portrait choices: Sketch, Drawing, Full Color Paintings
You can commission Linda to create an original full color painting, detailed black and white drawing, or sketch as a gift to yourself, spouse, parent or child to be treasured for years to come. A vision of your highest Self may come through using your eyes or part of your face. Often the Soul Portrait may also be more symbolic such as a visual metaphor sent through Linda.

Sketch : A 9″ x 9″ sketch is a rough graphite rendering that includes Linda’s notes of the words that come across while creating your portrait. You can always commission the artist first for a sketch and then upgrade if you wish. Sketches are also always done first for black and white drawings and paintings as part of their process. If you feel you would like to take part in creating your own Soul Portrait from Linda’s sketch, sign up for one of her Soul Vision Workshops (click here for more info).

Interpretation of Cheryl’s Drawing
“The bumble bee is searching for truth. It is coming to the flowers of life- truth, beauty & love. Yes, yes, yes you are working so hard to be, do good. You are, you are.
The door is wide open for you to come to your “senses”. Use all your senses to know what is available to you, especially smell. These flowers are floating in the sky, high above the ground. Look up and see what is there for you. Freedom and Love. Take more time busy bee. The flowers of life are all connected. All beautiful. Find the beauty in all and you will see just how beautiful you are! “
“Some messages are longer than others. This I have no control over.”
- Mary Agnes Vetell Antanopolous, Social Media Expert
Q: How long have you been channeling?
A: Linda says, “Looking back, I’ve always been able to channel. Think about Mozart.. there is a new child prodigy at Julliard School of Music right now. He says he channels the music. How does this happen? We can all be open to assistance, guidance from above. I feel a connection to the invisible spirits, angels that assist us. I believe we all have guardian angels. When people receive their portraits, they often are touched so deeply tears flow from their eyes.”
Previous to this Linda has established herself as an award winning plein air painter with Signature status with both the New York and the International Plein Air Painters. She is also an elite member of the Pastel Society of America. Her work is national on a regular basis and both she and her work travel internationally. She has a classical background and has been trained by many modern master artists. Today, Linda’s latest series of work goes beyond the horizons and vistas she is noted for. She just received from About.com (NY Times company) a national award for Best Intuitive Artist, 2012. For more information about Linda, click here.
Q: How long does it take to complete a Soul Portrait?
A: Each piece is different. Some are simple and to the point, others are more descriptive and take more time to draw. Keep in mind there is a waiting list. Currently, the minimum time is 3-4 weeks. A painting may be 2-3 months as it requires more time to complete. Linda waits for the feeling to come across telling her “when it is done. The longer Linda sits with each piece, the more information will come through revealing a story so there is greater understanding.
Q: Will my Soul Portrait reveal anything negative?
A: Never. These portraits are of your higher self and are meant to inspire you to see beyond your flesh and into your true, inner self. They remind you just how beautiful you are. They celebrate the positive self you have felt dwelling within you, but have kept hidden from the world. These works serve to confirm your gifts or help to keep you on track of your soul’s purpose. It is all good.
Q: Can I upgrade my Soul Portrait?
A: Yes, absolutely! Linda will keep the initial portrait as a sample and upgrade you so that your payment goes toward the new portrait. Then you can simply pay the remaining balance.
Q: Do you need to meet with me to create my Soul Portrait?
A: While Linda enjoys meeting each person, it is not necessary. A photograph is all that is needed for her to focus on your energy. Simply email her the photo at Linda@LindaRichichi.com when you order your Soul Portrait. If you would like to have the initial sketch created in her presence, make an appointment. For those who are out of the area, Linda can also meet with you online. She will explain that process if desired.
Q: What are the payment options?
A: Linda is happy to make it comfortable for you so that everyone can afford to enjoy the benefit of seeing his or her highest Self . While Paypal is preferred, check, money order, and cash are also accepted. You can pay in full, pay half down and then the remaining balance upon completion, or call the studio at (845) 527-1146 and an assistant will speak to you and discuss other payment options if you prefer something different than offered on this site.
Q: How do you determine your prices? If it is spiritual, shouldn’t it be free?
A: That’s a good question. Soul Portraits are her life’s calling. She pours so much time, energy, and love into each individual work of art while still having all the financial obligations that everyone else does. If Linda did do these for free then she would have to have another means of income leaving her no time to create these inspiring works of art.
