Bonnie Peacher

I am primarily an acrylic painter, creating realistic works with expressive color. I have a passion for travel and much of my inspiration comes from people and places I have encountered in my journeys, but recent restrictions have caused me to also focus on local subjects such as Northwest locations and personal acquaintances. I use my own photos and I look for positive themes in everyday events or places. I agree with Pierre-Auguste Renoir in that “There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is, without creating still more of them."
