The Simple Life – Enjoy the View
Watercolor, 16″ x 20″
The Simple Life “Enjoy the View” was inspired by the Boise foothills surrounding my home on the rim in Columbia Village as I often walk my dog Bailey there. By removing the urban landscape and keeping the space minimalist I was able to evoke for me, a sense of delight in nature and a desire to walk into the painting and explore.
An Australian-American who came to the USA in 1987 and has lived in the states of Virginia, Washington, and Idaho, I draw and paint plein air to express feeling using charcoal, graphite, watercolor, acrylic or oil. In 2019 my original painting was selected for the Eagle Historical and Preservation Park. For 2020 my second cover painting was selected for the Boise Weekly, Titled – “Riding My Bike”, May 20-26, 2020, and I was juried into Art and Soul of the Magic Valley, 2020. I am grateful to share my vision for an interconnected humanity
