What a wondeful piece of commissioned work. They must’ve been thrilled with this. The whole thing is masterful, but I really, really like the way you rendered the tree out front. I wish so much I could learn to paint a tree without using a sponge to do it. This way looks sooooo much better.
Just dapping instead of sponging, Marsha. Slower process, but I like the end results better than sponging, although I still sponge some of the scrubs occassionally. Thanks.
That’s a really beautifully scene, wonderful in all the details, the shadows and tones of colour…….outstanding piece of work Jim!!
Very nice of you Arie, thank you very much.
This is beautiful Jim!The trees break the harshness of the red brick chapel without taking away the character and style of the building…well done!
Well on this one they asked that I stay true to the actual scene and the trees were there, so I can’t take too much credit for the composition on this one. Thanks Sandy.
Oh so lovely Jim. This has the charm and feel of a New England landscape. I am sure the recipient will be so happy to have this piece.
They have the marines and God on their side, I hope they’re pleased as well. LOL Thanks Carolyn.
Wheee!!!! just grrreat JIm….I absolutely love it….they will be well pleased with this for sure…the tree is superb, the texture of the brick comes through so perfectly…really well done…
That really pleases me that you like it Janis, thanks so much.

Thank you again and again, I love your support, Shulie.
It’s beautiful Jim, I thought it was a photo! Nice sky too.
That’s always a nice compliment to a painter, Cal. Thanks.
This is so beautiful, Jim! I imagine the speaker was thrilled! Wow!
I understand he is an Admiral out of the Penagon over the Chaplain Corps. Thanks Carolyn.
wonderful painting Jim. at last i gave up to study landscape. i will concentrait in portraiture from now.
You make that sound like a bad thing Hidemi. Portraits are a strenght of yours, so play on your strenght. That smart for any artist to do.
