Hi this is Sandy Lindblad! Welcome to my site.
Welcome to the place of furry critters and other subjects!
Home of custom cat and dog acrylic and pastel art portraits, and other special creatures!
I create the "feeling" of your pet and other subjects in art.
Checkout my blog too at: sandylindblad.blogspot.com
I'm also on facebook at: facebook.com/LindbladStudios
You have a favorite pet, cow, kitty cat, that you'd like created into a custom pet portrait from your own personal picture? Hmmm..? Well you are at the right place! I do my best to capture that spirit and personality of your pet in my paintings. When I'm not creating a commission for someone.. I keep busy by working from a cool photo that I have! We have lots of models here at my studio! You want to see my studio too?? Send me an email or call me at 530.913.0679 and we can arrange for an appointment! Go to the contact page! You also can find me at Second Saturdays in Sacramento at the Kennedy Gallery 20th St and L (1931 L) as I am a resident artist here.
“Furry critters always bring inspiration to my acrylic or pastel paintings. I try to bring smiles to my art as well as catch the feeling of the animals I paint, even when creating commissions! In this website, I created whimsical, and sometimes more serious, yet fun colorful images, using lots of brush strokes while creating the essence of the furry critters shown here.”
The main mediums I use are pastels and acrylics. (Pastels are pure pigment, which can last forever: eg. the great painter Degas, his paintings are still around in museums!) I also work with acrylics on canvas. The artwork I create is between expressionism and realism. I do my best to capture your pet's personality on paper or board! Check it out!
To help improve my color, I go out and create plein air paintings. I create studies on small gessoed masonite boards using oils and a palette knife. Go to my link on this site! Painting outside from life helps improve your color!
