Marc Boone was born and raised in the Palouse country of Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington.  He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pacific Northwest College of Art (Museum Art School) in Portland, and a Master of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.  With a long and varied career on the East and West Coasts, he now divides his time between Ocean Park on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, where he has his main studio, and Portland.

My paintings—oils and watercolors–are interpretations of natural phenomena.  Water and sky, weather and light, are each work’s elemental ingredients.  They are a result of a search for the magical in nature—the poetic, arcane image found through observation and the act of painting itself.  The Columbia Pacific region inspires my work.

"In this series "Blues Indigo" I have combined the color indigo with my love of Blues and Jazz.  The work was all painted in 2017 in my Ocean Park, Washington studio.  I do not attempt a realistic representation of nature, but rather a poetic depiction of the ocean and its mysteries.  The paintings are visual memories inspired by Jazz and Blues."   -   Marc Boone
