Oregonian Darla Kay Boljat, of Sherwood, creates paintings in her Home studio. D. K. started painting with acrylic paints thirteen years ago and now enjoys both acrylic and oil painting as well as mixed media. Darla teaches acrylic painting techniques to students of all ages at the Sherwood Center For the Arts. She enjoys creating commissions for clients as well as painting for the joy of it! If you have something you would like her to paint for you please contact her at email@example.com or 503-724-0770.
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed making things. I enjoy the challenge of recreating beauty I see all around, in nature as well as people and animals. I start most paintings by under painting the image in acrylic, then finishing it in oil paint.
This allows the acrylic to shine through in places needed and the oil to give the painting depth. This featured artist show includes animals, as well as landscapes.
I have displayed two paintings from my just-finished Seven Wonders of Oregon series, Crater Lake and the Tualatin Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
Meet Darla at the artist reception Sunday April 9th from 2-4 pm.
