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.)

    Your water reflections are always beautifully done. Nice composition, Jim.

  • I use to tell my wife when she caught me just staring into the clouds or the water, that as an artist I was actually working….maybe it really did pay off….LOL

    Very nice, Jim. I especially like the reflections & the touches of red.

  • I think you do that on purpose, I had to go look at where I used red…….thanks Marsha.

    Love the colors in this. This is a fine work! So many memories of my Dad are circled around marinas
    and our boats.

  • Even though my Dad is very much alive, he is in his 90’s, I still very much relate to your comment. Between him and myself we’ve always had a boat in the family. He doesn’t participate in those kind of activities any longer and I do miss it very much.

    Oh my gosh! From the thumbnail it looked like a photograph… and an even more beautiful painting Jim!

  • To tell me it even looks close to a photo is a wonderful compliment, thanks so very much Susan.

    Very different color the green!

  • Good eye Kamal, of course in “real life” those trees would have had much more of the yellow-green appearance, but I intentionally made them a bit more blue-green to set the mood as a more relaxing atmosphere. Thanks.
