Acrylic painting on a 20″×16″ canvas panel

Wife Barbara doing one of the things she loves to do, surf fishing.

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.)

    This is truly wonderful, Jim. Love the colors & action. And what I really like is how the pole exits the scene with the line leading back in….good move!

  • That pleases me a lot that you picked up on that fine detail. Thanks so very much Marsha.

    Nice one brah’…..hope it was a big one she caught…..andI’m talking about fish…..not a cold….you really captured the essence of the surf and shore

  • Truth….this is a scene we would see from June thru Oct, the rest of the time we would find her fishing off the pier (and that’s cool, not cold weather.)
