Hello and welcome
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I am an abstract painter with a focus on bold, colorful and dynamic paintings and this blog shows you my journey to creating art.
Painting is my passion, I'm probably painting right at this moment.
The last weekend of October, I’m the guest artist at Lydia Smets’ Open House event. Lydia creates unique and surprising glass sculptures with her own modern glass kiln. Some of her works can be viewed at http://glaskunst.tumblr.com She opens her house and atelier to the public that weekend and invited me to exhibit some of my paintings for […]
I made tens of them… only a few make it to staying… Here are some of the studies I’m happy with. Soon they will be available on Instagram http://instagram.com/lindacoppensartshop
The last weeks, I am focusing on experimental studies and color palettes. I experiment with a limited palette on a lot of different sizes of paper and all kinds of paper. My studio is a big mess and I run out of space because everything needs to dry, so time to write this short post and upload […]

Finally, I have custom sized storage racks installed by a local carpenter. I am very happy with them! Now I can easily store my paintings and keep them separated from each other. This was a big problem with the previous storage solution, where I needed to put something in between works to avoid clinging to each […]
Just finished three new paintings on Terraskin paper. They are available at ARTspace Europe
Some pictures of the set up of the exhibition and the opening reception. It was fun and challenging to make an interesting combination of Liliane’s figurative work and my abstract paintings, but we did it! The exhibition ends on 22 May, so only one week left if you want to visit it.
Starting Thursday 28 April, the duo-exhibition A visual conversation of Liliane De Koninck & Linda Coppens will be hosted in the Cultural Center of Asse, Huinegem 2-4, 1730 Asse (Belgium). You are cordially invited to the Opening reception on Thursday 28/4 at 19h30. Guido Verhaeghe, eredirecteur of the Portaelschool Vilvoorde/Belgium, will be the guest speaker. The exhibition is open until 22 May […]

Terraskin paper Terraskin is a very smooth paper, made of a combination of mineral powder (>75%) and a small quantity (<25%) of […]
