Living at the Mouth of the White Oak River by 

Acrylic painting on 12″×9″ canvas panel

Many beautiful homes line the shores of the White Oak River as it flows East through North Carolina and starts to widen as it greets the salt waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

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.)

    Really nice Jim, love the reflections and the lighting. Looks like a very pretty place to live.

  • Thanks Holly, I have many friends who have waterfront property and it has both it’s pro and cons, but I agree, it always looks inviting anyway.
