Richard Lindenberg. A truly talented painter. Country Road is a beautiful painting… I love the shadows in the road before it bends… he gives a nice sense of distance with this painting. Very nice!

Richard’s description of this painting: Created at the 2014 Sonoma Plein Air Festival. Out Western Ave. in Petaluma.

Just. Look. At. This. Light. Pretty fabulous isn’t it? I am always drawn to paintings with light… that fabulous light!

Richard’s description: Went out to China Camp State Park to paint the waters edge late in the day…  and saw this beautiful backlit stand of trees on the shoreline.

My truth lies somewhere between a life well lived thus far… and the dreams of what can still be.

The discovery and joy of painting came to me quite late in my life path, but not unexpectedly.  Landscape photography was my chosen creative medium for thirty years after attending Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara.  Large, medium and small format cameras… using primarily black and white images and the magic of polaroid transfers on watercolor paper.  Most of my adult career was spent as an entrepreneur importer and graphic designer.  Then in 2006 I became more heavily involved in the art industry as the product manager for Savoir Faire, the exclusive importer of Sennelier fine art materials where the history from the French manufacturer opened my eyes to the impressionist era and to art materials in general. In 2010 he joined with Plein Air Magazine as their Marketing Manager. 

In 2001, after taking a painting class in soft Pastels to enhance my Polaroid transfers…I was swept away by the possibility of actually being able to paint.  After years of painting landscapes in pastel, my passion now is painting the landscape en plein air exclusively with oils.Painting is a friend that always brings me great joy and peace.  I paint primarily because it constantly allows me to open my heart.  The little moments looking out a car window at an extraordinary sight, or seeing the way a strip of late afternoon light streaks across the meadow.  If my paintings can allow the viewer access into a world that is always present, but often taken for granted… then I have contributed something. 

Catch you back here tomorrow!

  1. Barbara, you have great taste in your featured artists. Richard Lindenberg’s work is terrific, as is Mary Jaben’s work (your featured artist last week). I love seeing these artists, whose work I admire, featured on your site.
