Next time you’re in the library drop into our meeting room, Room L 129, and enjoy the paintings of Linnie Baird. Born in Alabama, Baird finally got to Texas in her early twenties and has been delighted to be here ever since. You’ll be amazed to learn she’s been painting for only seven years, having taken up a family painting tradition only after her artist father died. She paints in oils and pen and ink, with a distinctly Texas style. She's equally at home with painting architecture, landscape ( in both Texas and Colorado), and figures.
