Timberline Artists’ Biographies
Doug Boomer was born and raised in Madera County, California. During his youth he grew up on a farm in the San Joaquin Valley, spending summer vacations camping in the Sierra’s.
When he was about twelve years old he was inspired by an uncle who was painting portraits and various figures. He was also inspired by the many artists he saw at art shows during the 1970s and 1980s, including his two brothers. He and his wife Barbara have lived in Eastern Madera County since 1964.
His art represents an artistic journey that has been on-going for more than twenty-five years with help and guidance from many wonderful artists. He started studying formally with other artists during the 1990s. He has studied under many professional painters including Donald “Putt” Putman, Carlene Kostiw, Gary Langdon, Jerome Grimmer, and many others.
In his representational paintings, primarily in watercolors and acrylics, he tries to express the subject he’s painting in such a way that the viewer has an emotional response. Whether the subject is a figure, a flower, an animal, or a landscape, he wants to capture the spirit of the subject with light, color, mood, or motion. He is trying to express something that is intriguing about the subject. He is seeking to communicate a story that tells of something greater than the subject itself.
