Jim has told me about his paintings before and showed me one or two on his phone. However, he works on a large scale (most of his paintings are 48" square or larger), so I was blown away when I got to see them in person. Sadly, my little iPhone photos are not doing Jim's GORGEOUS paintings justice. You'll just have to make sure to go to the next Open Studio event and see them in person.
Jim doesn't number his work or even name his paintings. A lot of his current work shown was in blues and greens, which is one of my favorite color palettes. Some of the paintings even had some glitter in them. Jim originally started with oil paint but now works in acrylic.
|This one reminds me of the Carribbean. It makes me feel calm and tranquil.|
|Here is my friend Jim, the man behind the paintings! This one reminds me of Monet's water lilies.|
|50 shades of teal!|
|I wish this painting was fabric!|
|This one looked like a winter view of trees while skiing. It would be a fabulous batik! My apologies for the bad lighting!|
|This painting looks like it has lace in it. Mike questioned Jim on how he obtained this effect.|
|This is one of Jim's earlier pieces.|
|This orange painting greeted you when you entered Jim's loft.|
|This painting is in Jim's bedroom. It hangs over his desk.|
|This painting is in Jim's living room and hangs over his fireplace.|
|Here is the quilt that we made for Jim.|
|This is Jim's floor which he hand-painted! I think he was subliminally inspired by the concentric squares in his quilt.|
Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
