Acrylic on 11″×14″ canvas board

One of my students returned with a beautiful photo from the mountains of North Carolina. It’s alittle too early to see the full beauty of the fall colours so I enhanced or let’s say took some artistic liberties with this painting. This is what I know it will look like in about two to three weeks from now.

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.)

    Jim, this is so lovely. It does my heart good to see the brilliant fall colors portrayed so beautifully. I miss the fall season, and the trees but thanks to this piece, I am there!

  • How sweet of you Carolyn. Actually, here on the NC coast, we don’t get the strong bright autumn colors either. For me to view it first hand I have to head further north or to the western part of the state.
