FAIRMONT — Another artist’s artwork is on display at the Marion County Public Library in Downtown Fairmont.

Fairmont resident Sharon Linn has her pencil and painting equine, bovine and western artwork on display at the library until March 9.

A lot of her work is done with pencil.

“With pencil, I can always come back to it,” she said. “It’s easier.”

“He’s my inspiration, and he’s in a lot of my paintings,” Linn said.
