Description: #1356 Traditional Western Art, "On The Edge", by Linda Gulinson. This is a painting depicting the grandson of the Lakota Sioux Chief, Chief David Bald Eagle, standing on top of a high piece of rock. I painted this child because in my opinion Native Americans have such a high peak to climb now, taking into account what has happened to their culture. This child lived on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota at that time. I met many of the Bald Eagle family in South Dakota where I took many photos of all of them. He, for some reason was playing dress- up in a Navajo outfit. Traders moved throughout the Midwest and West, hence the wearing of other tribes outfits and maybe even jewelry was not uncommon. I even observed some of the Navajos wearing Apace headbands so some mix up seemed to happen.

Dennis, it took a long while for many of the Native Americans to trust us and I was appreciative of the fact that they did trust me to portray them with the inherent sympathy and interest I had in them personally.

Information on her follows in her own words,

I graduated college Magna Cum Laude. I entered a number of shows and won a number of awards, During this period, I was awarded The Pastel Society Of America’s most prestigious award, one year’s free tuition to the Art Students League of New York. We worked that out even though we lived in Denver at the time. Both during my pastel years and onto oils, I have done a number of commissions of people, places and dogs. Some of my European and dog images are shown in the Archival Category.

As inferred above, I expanded to oils and studied about fifty individual weeks with some the country’s finest Western artists, including two Master Classes with Howard Terpning .

I have enjoyed figurative paintings, particularly of the West including cowboys, horses, children and especially Native Americans. I have sought to depict the inner beauty and character of my subjects and have had the good fortune to appeal to buyers and collectors of my work.

I have been in Western Art Collector’s “The State of Art in Colorado” as well as being recognized in the Editorial Section. The book “Art Of The American West” by Linscott and Christensen-Duff displayed my work. Four times, my images have appeared on the cover of “Ranch And Country” magazine. Works of mine have appeared on the front and back inside cover of The New Mexico Guide, and recently, an image of mine appeared in ”Dallas Style and Design”.

I have appeared in several museum shows in Cheyenne, Wy., wherein I sold well and gained several collectors.

Sometimes life comes full circle. I have always loved art and in grade school was placed in an adult class taught by instructors from The Chicago Art Institute. My forte was figurative, but now that I am transitioning into modern, contemporary and even abstract art, I can explore my love of color and composition.

On a personal note, we moved from Denver to Peoria, Arizona, to be with nine of our ten grandchildren and three of our four sons.
