Two months before leaving her native China for the United States, Wharton resident Lin Sheng Carter did something she had always wanted to do: take a few painting lessons. If her current artwork is any indication, those lessons were good — very good.
Around 50 of Lin’s original watercolors are currently on display at the Wharton County Historical Museum. And suffice it to say that the paintings are absolutely exquisite. From small 8x10 images to gigantic wall prints, her work is like taking a stroll through Chinese history and culture.
