Acrylic paints on canvas panel 20″ × 16″

Done as a demo for students with the focus on color and light reflections.

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.)

    Beautiful work, Jim. Your colors are always so bright & happy. I can most always recognize your work without a name attached to it.

  • Isn’t that the way it’s suppose to be…? I got where I could recognize yours as well and then you started doing things other than farm animals and it kinda through me for a loop…. Thank you Marsha.

    Hi Jim – I would love to be in one of your classes! Would just have to change countries I think! Lovely demo piece! xx Kay

  • I do believe that it’s a case of “the grass is always greener,” because I always feel like everything is always happening down under Kay….LOL. Thanks, that really is a fine compliment.

    I love the colors in this one. I have a similar blue pitcher that my brother found in an antique store. Now I have a collection of more than 10 blue pitchers. I love them, but haven’t gotten around to putting them in paintings yet.

  • Just how cool would that look with all the different values of blue. Thanks for your kind comment Lora.
