IN BLOOM I market LIZ LINDSTROM Fondest Christmas memory: From the time I was small, Christmas Eve was the night we turned out all the lights and lit the fire and candles for dinner and opened a few gifts. I have continued that tradition with my family. It is the quietest part of the holidays, and I love how beautifully my family and home look in the soft candlelight. JUST FOR FUN OME MAY WONDER, in a time when our cell phones bloat with the digital weight of hundreds of pictures of our loved ones, why a painted portrait still has value. Let us direct you to artist Liz Lindstrom, a Chattanooga native and daughter of renowned portrait artist Bart Lindstrom. Her works—in oil, charcoal, or pastel—capture not just the likeness of her subjects, but also their essence. A young boy on the cusp of adolescence, wide-eyed in a brown buttoned blazer, hair slightly askew. A little girl in a tutu, her face with an easy calm, foot pointed in tendu. A dancer herself, Lindstrom has written that her approach is inspired by ballet (Degas is an obvious influence) and by what she calls "an apprecia- tion for the human spirit." We love her pieces for their tenderness and vibrancy as well as a modern sensibility that isn't beholden to the traditional parameters of portraiture. A Liz Lindstrom portrait is more than a picture. It's a treasure. S Liz Lindstrom: LIZ LINDSTROM STUDIO To see more of Liz Lindstrom's artwork, visit lizlindstrom.com.
