Hal Bohner Bio Pacifica, California
Landscape and seascape painting go right to my heart and right to the heart of me. I grew up in Colorado and was in love with the mountains and the desert. But when I came to California the ocean took my breath away. In my head and my heart I have always had a dialog with the landscape and the ocean, and in my paintings I try to make some of that dialog visible to others. I hope to inspire them to have their own conversations.
Studied watercolor and oil painting with Alysanne McGaffey, Robert Dvorak, Zoltan Szabo, and others. Studied etching at the San Francisco Art Institute and with printmaker John Sirica in his studio in Washington, D.C. Various other courses in drawing, painting, and photography.
