Richard Lindenberg

by Sarah Judson December 30, 2013

Award-winning California artist Richard Lindenberg came to painting after thirty years as a landscape photographer, using primarily black and white polaroid image transfers on watercolor paper. No wonder he has a way with intriguing compositions. Shown above is his 16"x12"oil painting Shaded Bluffs, which won the People's Choice Award at the 2012 San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival. At left is a 9"x12" oil entitled Barn on Platform Bridge Road, from his book of more than 70 recent paintings is entitled Local Land. He is a member of the California Art Club, the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and the American Impressionist Society. He also works for PleinAir magazine as their marketing manager. "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." At right is a 12"x9" nocturne entitled Moonlit Cypress.
