By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary
American landscape painter Linda Curtis (born 1951 in Providence, Rhode Island).
Linda’s love of nature inspired her to take art lessons and join the Artists’s Workshop in Jacksonville, Oregon. They paint outside on Monday’s when the Oregon weather allows and paint inside from models, still life or photographs during the cold and rainy season. She took watercolor workshops with Don Andrews, Catherine Chang Lui, Alex Powers and Jan Kunz. Linda joined the Oregon Watercolor Society, was accepted in several shows and won awards.
Linda’s desire to explore different textures and mediums led her to take pastel workshops with Harley Brown and Richard McKinley, her friend and mentor and biggest influence. She discovered her love for oils during this time. She is fortunate to live in the Rogue Valley of Oregon and enjoy the weekly camaraderie and challenges in Richard’s class.
Linda now snowbirds to Arizona during the winter months and has taken workshops with Dan Young, Brian Mark Taylor and Phil Starke through the Scottsdale Art School. She paints weekly with the Gold Canyon Plein Air Painters and the Arizona Plein Air Painters.
Linda is a member of American Women Artists, Artists’ Workshop, Art Presence, Gold Canyon Plein Air Painters and Arizona Plein Air Painters.

“Being out in nature allows me to study the nuances of the quality of the light and the color shifts needed to convey my interpretation of the scene.”
