Art on the Boulevard is pleased to announce the addition of pastel artist Steve Hill. A resident of Lopez Island, Washington, Steve is an award winning plein-air artist whose work ranges from Northwest scenes to Tuscan Villas. To see more of Steve's work please visit our website http://www.artontheboulevard.org/.

Steve in his own words:

"There are places in this world where we all like to go to escape the awkward rhythm of our too-busy lives, to “play in the garden”. We may feel a strong urge to linger on a sun-drenched rock where water meanders or hike over pathways that wind through interesting terrain. We like to stand at the edges of fields, along coastal areas, visit beautiful ancient villages or just perch somewhere to contemplate how changing light makes everything look and feel sensual—without light, there is nothing left to define painting elements like color, shape or form. We like to return to a favorite room and lay our hands on familiar objects, read poetry, books, sink into meditation.

If I could put my finger on why I paint, what I paint , where and how I paint, it is to simply search-out these special places and explore the emotional moments with all senses on high alert throughout the entire process of creating art."
