About Kip DeVore

'Art is long, and time is fleeting.' -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (quoting Hippocrates, 400+ B.C./B.C.E.).

Welcome to AV Gallery Series Online -- watercolors of the southeast Missouri region, Arcadia Valley area. I sometimes term the area 'Brigadoon' after the Hollywood film by that name, which in the Ozark Mountains, including the nearby highest point in the state, Taum Sauk Lookout, reminds some of the highlands of Scotland where the Brigadoon story took place. As in the film Arcadia Valley is not on the map and further, in our case, there actually is even no specific town of that name -- Arcadia Valley is just an area. I was born and raised here, studied and later taught art at a nearby community college, received my BA in communications at the University of California, San Diego, and did graduate work in law and business at the Univ. of Arkansas, Fayetteville. My art is in offices, banks and homes locally and I have taken ribbons at shows in St. Louis; my prints here sell nationally. I got the idea to do art of the local area from parents who painted avocationally (Dad's yellowed 'Pig Sty' pen & ink posted on about page eight is the most popular work here garnering easily 20+ visits a day, more than twice that of any of my work). Most of my landscape watercolors are plein air or, that is, painted in open air on location; right now my technique is more impressionistic though originally was realistic. My aim is to produce art that is refreshing and colorful, maybe someday beautiful. Please contact me regarding questions, comments, possible commissions or licensing or to purchase an original.
