 Doug Boomer grew up on a farm in the San Joaquin Valley, of central California spending summer vacations camping in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He relocated to Idaho in 2020. When he was about twelve years old, he was inspired by an uncle who was oil painting portraits and various figures. He was also inspired by many artists he saw at art shows during the 1970's and 80's, including his two brothers. 

 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 including Donald "Putt" Putman, Carlene Kostiw, Gary Langdon, Jerome Grimmer and 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, flower, animal or 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 and how he can communicate that....a story that tells of something greater than the subject itself.
