Dive into the fantasy world of Linda R. Herzog. Linda sees detail visions of her creations in color, movement, and sound in her dreams as she sleeps. With excitement of her visions she often wakes in the middle of the night to do thumbnail sketches of what she believes will be a great painting. She often returns in a half-sleep state and to finish out the details. Linda's childhood is her muse along with the simple things in life. You can see hints of inspiration from several artists that have moved her.

Linda grew up in Utah and always felt an ardent closeness to nature and animals. She was drawing animals in detail at an early age and has never stopped. Her first oil painting was at the age of 9 and knew that was what she always wanted to be doing. Encouraged by her parents in middle school she took adult night oil painting classes with her mother and grandmother. Linda took many art classes in high school. After that Linda is self-taught.

Moving to Southern California in 1986, Linda received inspiration from the ocean and started painting marine life. Then in 1998 found total joy in painting wildlife in a realm of unique unreal settings. Linda calls her paintings "Wildlife Fantasy".

Linda's paintings have been displayed throughout Southern California, New York City, Tokyo Japan, Maui Hawaii and Chicago. Her paintings were in the Universal feature film "Dragonfly" staring Kevin Costner, and are in the collection of Toyota Corporation. Art Business News showed Linda's work in their "Trendsetters" section of the magazine.

I am finally taking the time to up date my journal.

The gallery that I have been in for 7 years has closed it's doors in January. Made me sad they did well for me. A month later a found a new gallery outlet for my paintings in LaJolla. I have high hopes for this new location for my work. It is a vacation town summer and winter, and gets much more trafic.  

They are haveing a show for me and 3 other artists June 9th. So I have been pinting about 10 hours a day the last couple months getting new work done for that.  

Here is the link to my new gallery location ...…

No need to respond.

Thanks, Linda
Enough of butterfly's. Got off an a tangent there, yet they will always show up here and there in my paintings. Off to larger critters and animals. Gorillas are coming. Want to thank John "Houly1970" for making me pay more attention to details.  A good friend.
To all my friends....

Sorry everyone who has written me, I have been so busy with a show this last month. I got way behind in here. I am trying to catch up.

Thank you for all your kind words.

My daughter just walked in and told me because in my messages from my friends are now posted differently is because someone paid for it to be done. Is that right??? I just thought DA changed the format. Can someone exlpaine that to me? If that is right. I have no idea who did and why.

Thanks a bunch, Linda

I am honored and so excited.  My friend thraxllisylia "Marley" informed me that he saw my name posted to be in the next Spectrum 13 Fantastic Art book on their web site.

I got the letter in the mail yesterday that "Sheldon Hatching The Egg" painting was the chosen work. It is in the "Unpublished" section.
This is my first attempt to do a journal entry. Hope it works.

I feel bad that I have accidentally deleted some comments sent to me by double clicking. If you are waiting for a responce on a question or statement sent to me, please send it again.  I have been waiting to hear back from a few of my friends.  Sorry. - Linda
