Jacksonville City Hall and and Fountain. by 

9″×12″ acrylic on canvas
Today (St. Patty’s Day) made a perfect day to join my En Plein Aire group, OOPS (Onslow Outdoor Painters Society) as we gathered at our city hall building (Jacksonville, NC) and the very decorative fountain that is close by to paint. It was sunny and around 70 degrees out today. To view photographs of the actual building and fountain go to http://oopsnc.blogspot.com/

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    I like how you painted the water….it looks very believable.

  • Thanks Marsha. I had finished the buildings first, and I really did get a bit anxious before starting the actual fountain water. Once I got going I was OK.

    The scene feels fresh and lively…great work Jim…

  • I’m finding out my work is a lot more loose plein aire than back in the studio. Thanks Janis.

  • That water is still REAL cold brah’. May is more likely to be the month I get started. But I have started having afternoon cocktails out by the pool, at least that’s half the experience….lol.

    Great work Jim! I really should try plein aire painting one day. You’ve done a great job on the water

  • Fellow local painter friends kinda pulled me into it kick’n and scream’n……LOL Seriously I used to think it really wasn’t my cup of tea, but now I really look forward to the one a month plein aire outing. It’s fun.

    Sounds like a great day out with great results Jim. I recently recieved a book from Jacksonville library. The books are donated to World Books and the profits go to African schools. A great organisation and I have a little bit of your town in Australia !!

  • Sound great Norah. I do so hope that was Jacksonville, North Carolina that you speak of.
