"Rolling Hills", 44" X 58" Fluid Acrylic

Rolling Hills by April M Rimpo
When I started to paint Rolling Hills I was planning to do a very different version of this scene, but sometimes the painting evolves in different directions. I planned an abstracted piece but it became very serene.  Every time I look at this painting I want to be lying on the hillside by this lake watching the clouds drift by without a care in the world.  It feels so peaceful to me.

It was derived from a place on North Island, New Zealand but ended up more like the rolling hills in Matamata.  Matamata is the site on South Island where Peter Jackson chose to build Hobbiton for the Lord of the Ring movies.  When my husband looked at the painting he asked if Hobbiton was over the rise. Similar scenes can be seen across rural America.

Rolling Hills is the largest painting I have done to date.  It measures 44" X 58" and is done in Fluid Acrylic on gallery wrapped and varnished paper.  Framing is not required.

    1. Thank you, Debbie. This was a different color palette for me, but I like the mood it set.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
