“Flights of Fancy”
is a collection sparked by recollections of a childhood parakeet appearing in unusual places around the house, exploring a world outside the cage. Boling then added the wild birds that stopped at her feeders to her domestic cast of characters. Everything from antiques to toys, snack foods to a coal-miner’s canary cage, became props on the stage of her winged actors. From realistic to whimsical, Boling’s not-so-still-life paintings engage the viewer with a slight twist on the still-life genre.
Boling is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America. An award winning artist, she has exhibited in many juried and solo shows in the metro area, as well as the international competition, “Birds in Art”. Boling has also been a finalist in magazine competitions of The Pastel Journal and The Artist’s Magazine in the wildlife category.
You can always see Boling’s work at The Loft Gallery, 313 Mill Street, Occoquan, VA, in her studio at the
same location, and on the website www.loftgallery.org
