This is the first and largest painting in my current Saddlehorn Series. The works are based on photographs of light and shadow playing over the surface of sections of a large rock formation near the Visitor Center and picnic area in the Colorado National Monument near Fruita in Western Colorado (near the Utah border.) In these works I am striving for balance and harmony in both palette and the composition. There will be more of these pieces. I'll post them here as I finish them. You will notice that I have many subjects and styles here on the site. I've been painting seriously since the late 1980s and have used those years to learn and explore. These paintings are a homecoming to painting after 20 years of freelance writing. I feel grateful to have found my mature style at last.

b. 1947 West Los Angeles, CAA daughter of California scene painter Charles F. Keck, I am a freelance writer as well as a visual artist. Though intimidated by my father's skill, I always enjoyed art and took some art classes in college, including one from (now, but not then)renowned artist Vija Celmins, where I met my husband. (We have been married 40 years.) I was more interested in writing, however, and went into teaching, thinking that summers would give me time for my own work. After teaching elementary school for 18 years, I became restless and uncomfortable. I longed for silence, and nothing helped, except painting. Small galleries included my paintings in shows after just six months of serious work. Then, I decided I needed to learn to draw. I waited in line at 4 AM every 10 weeks to register for uninstructed drawing groups at Barnsdall Art Center ( I know, we can't spell properly here in the States) in Los Angeles. Several dealers encouraged me and showed my work. In 1998, we moved to Colorado. I do not currently have a dealer, and I spend most of my time writing, but I do a few paintings a year, take a lot of pictures, and am experimenting with digital art. http://lindaarmstrongsportfolio.wordpress.com/ https://www.facebook.com/LindaArmstrongContemporary
