Biography and Statement
Keith Monroe Blanton was born in 1951 to a farming family whose roots can be found in their 1832 homestead farm located northeast of Indianapolis. My earliest memories are of the beautiful people and images associated with the family farms. I have always painted and sketched the beauty that God has placed around me. It is where I find my peace and my calling. Like most people, my interests over the years have been divided. My early and middle years were spent on the pursuit of an engineering career in the design and construction supervision of roads and bridges throughout Indiana. But, my love has always been in the art of oil painting. To capture on canvas the moment in time, the sparkle in the eye, and yes the very spirit and soul of the person, object, or scene that I am painting.
