14″×11″ acrylic on canvas panel

Thinking of Spring and the colours that brings.

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.)

  • It really isn’t that far off, and this is the year I had promised myself to give the pool a major upgrade…pipes fixings, etc. So yeah, I probably will get started next month. Your number one in my book whether your the first or last to comment kj.

    This is really great Jim! After the river, my eye was immediately drawn to the sections of light on the riverbank, beautiful!

    I love the warm colors , composition and perspective of this lovely painting. Looks like an awesome place to escape!

  • Actually it modeled after the creek that runs through my neighborhood about a block from my house. One of those that comes off New River. Thanks Jennifer.

    When I saw this, the memories started flooding in of some of the places & great times my brothers & I shared growing up. We loved playing in the local creeks….the good ol’ days for sure. Love the warmth in this & the hope of yet another welcomed Spring to come.

  • We would have shared a fine childhood if we had grown up together Marsha. It was kinda funny how I remember this creek from childhood that I played in constantly…. as an adult I drove by once and was so disappointed, it was hardly what you could even call a creek, more like a large drainage ditch…. lol. Why me and each of my friends weren’t all snake bit is truly a miracle. Thanks Marsha.

    This lovely painting reminds me of my childhood days where we spent every moment down by the river..the river changed names as it flowed through different areas of the town and the part I loved best was shallow and sparkly…it was called Moonshine…of course since it was tropical, the surrounding are was wild and untamed, but all the feeling is the same…

  • You, Marsha and myself would have made excellent playmates. Of course show almost any kid some water and they will automatically be in it doing something…..lol Thanks Janis.

    Last spring I replaced my sand filter and put on a new variable speed pump….they are costly but save over $50 a month on electricity….always tweaking up my barracuda cleaner too…..hang loose brah’

    Growing up, we lived in a trailer court with only a community bath house for bathing, so often times, Mom would send us kids down to the creek with a bar of soap to bathe there. Of course we didn’t know any better & would sometimes bathe downcreek from the wading cows! OK, Jim Bob, you can run with this one! LOL!

  • Well, it does explain that unnatural over affection for farm animals today….LOL My wife Barbara would probably relate closer than I as to your environment growing up. Making no apologies, nor bragging, but I grew up in a very middle class residential neighborhood, across the street from a country club that we were members of. Understand, like most children I didn’t understand about money, I still played in creeks, built treehouses, and broke both a arm and a foot (two different occasions) broke over 10 pairs of glasses, etc. I pride myself on never being a snob. It is directly due to the fact that my parents grew up on rural farms in Mississippi and when through the depression era that I was always taught that money rarely has anything to do with the quality of a persons good nature. I was also taught to choose my friends carefully, but never to use their income as a measuring devise. Well I guess I didn’t go in the direction you thought I would…lol.
