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 ... hallmarkgallery.com/fine_art/s…

No need to respond.

Thanks, Linda

Wow. Had I been pinting 10 hours a day, I could never get any work done. :-)

But that is what brings me joy. Thanks for writing. the show went well sold 8 since the show. But only one at the show. Better than none. : ) I see you like Andrew Bird. You never get tired of listening to him. Did you go to the art school in Chicago that is famous? (forget its name). Have a good friend who whent there. Your work is very sharp and powerful. - Linda

Thank you for the very nice comments. You're thinking of The School of the Art Institute, but I did not attend. My education came from the University of Illinois (Chicago + Champaign) and the American Academy of Art, Chicago. But a great deal of what I've picked up has been on-the-job.

I should update my journal because I listen to so much, but Andrew's current disc is so good, I want others to know about it. And his song iMitosis keeps playing in my head.

I love all of your work. Reminds me a bit of Donald Roller Wilson in subject and technical ability. I really think you're doing terrific stuff.

If you don't already know Donald, you might get a kick:

Thanks Jon,

Oh yes, I know his work. I love how he does the lighting on the background on his trees. The chimps are a hoot. He has a very nice web site. Cracks me up the olives and things floating across. That is a big compliment to me that my work makes you think of his. Thanks!

I don't recall the song Imitosis. I really like mxmissle and Lull. I will have to look that up. I have only his two latest disc.

Imitosis is on Armchair Apocrypha (2007). “Heretics” and “;Plasticities” are also goodies from the album.

You can download Heretics from: [link]

and catch a good video of Imitosis at:

The lyrics are terrific:

You know I found it and listend to it, it is the same song as..... Shoot I forgot it's title. I think it was "I" on another one of his discs. I do like Heretics better. Thank you!!! - Linda

Is it true that Oil Paintings tend to not sell because they tend to be higher in price do to the time needed to finnish them?

:iconlindarherzog:
LindaRHerzog Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2007
That is a hard one to answer..... I think they tend to be higher inprice maybe because that is pretty much the main medium is going back to the masters. It seems to be what more serious collectors like to purchase. I know a few acrylic artists that their prices are right up there. But I think that colectors are getting more open on medium and looking at talent. At least that is my opinion. - Linda : )

I had always wondered, my art teacher in school told me to stay away from oils, but now I'm regretting taking her advice and I think I'm going to pick up oil painting.

I can't imagine you doing badly at any gallery. Your paintings are soooo desireable. They look wonderful on-line; in person they must blow one away.
Good luck to you.
