Early, Even before the Fishermen by 

Acrylic on canvas panel
View of the lake right at dawn

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.)

    Excellent Rule Of Thirds and always love the colors in your work!. Great depth in the water Mr. Jim!

  • I do teach the rule of thirds in basic composition and you’re right, this one would make a very fine example Susan. Thanks for a fine comment.

    Ah, so peaceful and serene…great placement on the boat, too. Great job, Jim!

  • We could take that tent from your last work and pitch it on this bank somewhere. Thanks Gordon.

    Lovely painting Jim…but did you really get up so early?

  • I’m really not a early riser Glenn, but one of the few things I will get up early for is fishing. I probably wouldn’t have gotten up before the fishermen but I would have gotten up with them….LOL
