ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
My husband, Paul, is an artist. He has been painting since he was 11. He made his career as an art director for several ad agencies and owned his own for 12 years. He now paints for himself and has started painting outdoors again. I found one of his sketchbooks the other day and these are a few examples of some of his watercolor plein air paintings.
A grove of trees, a cloud filled sky, a building set in the midst of nature,
Anywhere the road takes you can become the perfect destination for a painting,
When you’re an artist, your paintbrush, your imagination and your skill find it,
When you know all about color and light – shadows and definition,
Your hand responds to the invitation.
You find beauty in all things, because you take the time to enjoy,
to see the details of life – the important things – not the clutter,
You can sort through the garbage and darkness and find it,
When you’re an artist.
