I live in Grand Junction, Colorado near the amazing Colorado National Monument, part of the National Parks system. At the top of the spectacular entrance road leading up from Fruita, a cycling destination village at the western edge of the Grand Valley, is the Visitor's Center and a picnic area. Beside the picnic area is a huge red rock formation eroded on one side into a shape like a saddlehorn. The rocks are smoothed by wind, rain, heat, and gravity. They are also cracked in fascinating ways. I have photographed details of these rocks many times. "Thrust" is one of four initial paintings in a new series I call "Saddlehorn." When I take the photographs and develop them into paintings, I see details in nature. The harmonies and rhythms in small things echo those in all things. For me, painting is recognizing integrity/wholeness.

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
