Digital Giclee print on archival paper
I love the sagebrush and basalt of Southern Idaho. I tend to haunt the area above the Snake River south of Boise, hiking through sagebrush terrain learning, snooping and watching. This digital painting created with an iPad and Apple Pencil records my view of this wide open space: mountains in the distance; sagebrush and its partner plants; basalt rock with the ubiquitous old fence posts and barbed wire; and a charming, little Rock Wren.
When Cindi Walton took her first art class she walked into the local art store clutching her supply list with stars in her eyes. The owner, seeing she was a student, asked if he could help. She smiled, saying, “”Yes, as soon as I touch every single thing in this store.”” If not in the studio she spends her time outside in the wild places of Idaho that inspire her. Primarily she paints with acrylics on canvas, but she also uses watercolor/gouache and her iPad and Apple Pencil. Most of the time she begins with a good ol’ sharpened pencil.
