“Thank you so much for the Soul Portrait workshop last night! I was enthralled with the whole process of learning more about myself and being creative. I plan to give my family and friends soul portrait sketches for Christmas and hold a workshop at my house. I have been trying to think of an activity that we can all do together and this will be really cool:)”

Awesome workshop! It was great to do this in a group. The chakra painting exercise was excellent.

Wonderful learning atmosphere, nonjudgemental reassuring, nice combination of experimental and sharing. Learned and enjoyed. Please do more.

Loved the new workshop experience- the “preamble” (meditation) supplied me with my image – an awesome experience. The freedom to create without concern….wonderful.
Adrienne from Circleville, NY
Great experience! It opened me up to a side of myself I didn’t know. Wonderful people in the workshop, too.
Stephanie from Warwick, NY
Excellent, motivational, fulfilling!
Elaine H. from Mt. Kisco, NY

“What I learned on that Italy trip has totally changed my life. Linda,you have been such an inspiration to me, and I was blessed! ! to be able to learn from 3 incredable artists. Not to mention the trip was just plain FUN!

I love turtles! It is awesome that they showed up for me. I took my soul painting to show my friend today, she loves it, too. Also looking closer at it, I was able to see more things in it. On the right side of frame I see a horse with wings. On left side of frame, where you see an angel, I see that also but within it I see a Divine Mother and a heart. I see a second eye on the front. I have to keep looking )) It makes me feel so peaceful & centered when I look at it. I also know there’s more under the surface that will get revealed.-Mary Carter, Cos Cob, CT
“Linda creates these one-of-a-kind works by channeling from your spirit and translating it to a drawing or painting. She did one as a gift for me and it was breathtaking. It honestyl changed something in how I was living my life. The Soul Portrait featured, over and over, my own little family of three, flying. Days and days later, faced with people pleasing someone in my life for the millionth time, I realized that I have to “fly” in my own circle now. I LOVE this woman’s work and can’t wait to see her in Tarrytown at the Awaken Fair on Nov. 19, 2011.”

WOW!!! Your work is wonderful! I have to come and see it in person. Your colors are so alive and yes, you capture the energy. Just gorgeous!
“I got to your show the day before it opened. It was a show that was quite like a breath of fresh air. I especially was taken with the number 18. It looks very new. I hope you had a good turn out. I tell every one to stop by and see some fine art!”
Cheers and congratulations,
- Linda Nadas (BFA and MFA New York State College of Ceramics and Design, Alfred University, Alfred, New York)
“It has always been my honor and pleasure to know you and your wonderful work so full of atmosphere, breath and a completely fresh approach.” – Warmest wishes from your fellow plain air painter & comrade.

“Your work is creative and full of love.”
“Just a quick note to encourage everyone to drop by the Karpeles Mauscript Museum on Broadway & Grand in Newburgh to catch a great exhibit by our own Linda Richichi. THis show is probably the closest thing you can get to a retrospective in Orange County of a talented and versatile artist. I think it is very bold of her to lay bare her creative journey as an artist. It is a rare treat to see an “inside view” of her transition from a highly skilled and acclaimed landscape/portrait painter to her more provocative/spiritual/abstract works. I don’t think many artists can claim such versatility, much less exhibit it in one show! I would love to see more edgy and thought provoking work like this!” Good job Linda!
