The Artful Home: Linda Plaisted

Washington, D.C.-area artist Linda Plaisted, who goes under the name Manymuses, works in a variety of mediums -- she's a painter, photographer, illustrator, and mixed media artist. Yet all of her work (such as Town Crier, above) shares a beautiful plaintiveness and an exquisite sense of melancholy.

Hers are rural scenes, for the most part, captured in the bleak and bittersweet of late autumn -- but with intricate layering, a rich sepia palette, and a gorgeously aged patina that renders them anything but plain.

Take a look:




The Ghost in You

Before the Frost Sets in

Cold Comfort

Three Sisters


No Reflection

Daily Observer


Each of Plaisted's prints is available in several sizes and finishes, ranging from for $18 for a 5-by-7 matte print up to $80 for a 16-by-20 metallic print. In addition, you can purchase gallery wrapped, ready-to-hang canvas prints for $60 to $350 each.
