Artist Kip Decker paints colorful rural and nature scenes. Inspired by the places he has lived, he creates in a style he describes as lyrical expressionism. Part of his time growing up was on and near farms in upstate New York, and the hills of California and South Carolina, where he now resides. "Over the years, I have taken numerous photos and done many drawings of the country," shares Kip. After Kip obtained his Masters in Fine Arts he taught college art for ten years. His decade-long experience as an art teacher, in turn, trained him to see art objectively, especially in critiquing work. His home studio, located in his basement, is a creative haven. He diligently works on his art, sometimes amidst a creative mess. When he is not painting, he savors spending time with his family and finds solace in bird-watching from a small lake across his street.

This painting is perfect for our home overlooking the Hudson River in the Hudson River Valley, NY. The view of the sailboats, varied blue, white and gray colors and panorama are all perfect.- J Long
This is one of my favorite paintings. I have a house full of art but this one stands out as something very special.- M Marshall
I feel happy and peaceful when I look at this painting on our wall. It is in the eating area of our kitchen where it adds beautiful vibrant color to the room. A wonderful addition to one of the places in which we spend most of our time in our home! Thank you!- EG
I am so happy with this lovely new painting -- it is stunning in my house. It is so interesting and beautiful. I love the composition of the trees, the kinked road, the quirky roof in the background. The colors are perfect! A very cool piece of art and I am enjoying it immensely!- S Robertson
