"My work has evolved over the years, but I like to portray light," said Elizabeth Linares. Linares hosted a reception at the Reston Center 2 Solo Exhibit location on Thursday, Feb. 6. Her photography exhibit, "Divine Love" will be on display at the Reston Center 2 until Feb. 27. "This exhibit shows the breadth and depth of Elizabeth’s work," said League of Reston Artists President Jim Schlett.

The images were taken with a Canon 7D DSLR camera. "I have always used Canon," said Linares. "In some cases I used a tripod." All the pictures on the display are for sale with the exception of the piece "Miracles" which depicts an image of Linares’ first grandson. "This piece always touches my heart," said Linares.

Linares began entering photography competitions in 2003, and in that year won a prize in the Washington Gallery of Photography Juried Exhibit. In the "Divine Love" exhibit Linares focuses on inspirational photography. "As a photographer, my hope is to bring out the inner light I see. My hope is that the pictures you see will cause you to pray or meditate," said Linares.

Linares’ daughter Lissette Linares was also attending the exhibit. "For me I have always been inspired by my mother’s work. She’s got an incredible gift," said Lissette Linares.
