About The Artwork

“One thing that happens when you have an alcoholic for a parent is you grow up the child of an alcoholic. (You can substitute mentally ill parent here ... they coincide in this scenario very well). For a quick trip around the bases, it means you blame yourself for everything, you avoid reality, you can't trust people, you're hungry to please. Which isn't all bad: perfectionism makes the straight A student; lack of trust begets self-sufficiency; low self-esteem can be a terrific motivator; if everyone were so gung-ho on reality, there'd be no Art.” ― Maria Semple, Author of Today Will Be Different It is our choice to stay stuck in these rolls or not. Play them to your favor or not. It's called Evolution. More about the Artist here: www.lindakleinart.com

Linda Klein is an eco-conscious Bay Area, California Artist who describes her herself as being on a creative journey to discover the balance and harmony between realism and abstract. Her ability to draw was discovered by her parents and teachers as early as preschool. Hence, her exploration in the Arts began as soon as she was able to grip a crayon, drawing and coloring on whatever surfaces she could find from walls to tables and even in the family's encyclopedias. As soon as Linda was old enough, her parents enrolled her in local art classes to channel her creative urges (and to save their home and belongings).  Today, her primary source of inspiration for her richly diverse subject matter comes from her current surroundings in the wild and beautiful settings of West Marin where she has resided since 2019.  Klein's style varies greatly depending on which Series (or Collection) she is working on. Characterized by either tonal colors and detailed graphite drawings, or bright splashes of pigment in rhythmic shapes, enhanced with recycled collage, her work travels a broad spectrum of application and presentation. Much of Linda Klein's past work consists of detailed pencil drawings and portraits characterized by her measuring lines or 'tick marks'. She often highlights her renderings with watercolors and charcoal powders to enhance tonal qualities and add greater depth. The majority of Klein's work today focuses on lively colors and ecology. Combining multilayers of watercolor with the addition of texture from collaged bits of litter she cleans up off of her adopted section of California scenic highways and her junk mail to bring greater purpose to work. It's not a rare thing on any given day to find Linda digging in her recycle bin for creative materials. These exciting paintings rejoice in nature and provide a gentle reminder to be better stewards of our planet, providing trees that had been destroyed to make paper and eventually litter, an opportunity to become beautiful tree-scapes once again. Most uniquely, while graphite and watercolor work is generally done on paper requiring expensive framing and issues with fragile and glaring glass, Linda mounts high quality watercolor paper that she purchases in large rolls onto wood panels of all sizes, thus removing the need for framing and glass. All work is protected with two coats of archival matte varnish. The result is a more contemporary and durable work of art that is ready to hang.
