How it started

My name is Liz Boughton and Art On The Bough is my dream become reality. I have always loved painting, but as so often happens, we put the things we love on the back-burner while we concentrate on the “more important” things in life.

It all started with a trip to London with a friend. While we were standing by the Thames outside the Globe Theatre, I saw a scene which made me think “I need to paint that!”. Several months later, as I finally got around to sketching and painting the scene, I shared my progress with the same friend, who in turn shared it with others. I had so much positive feedback, that the fantasy of painting for a living started to look like it could be a possibility. This of course is the View From The Globe painting, which you can order prints of on my Prints page.
