Look Out I'm Coming In For A Landing by 

20″×16″ Acrylic on Canvas panel

At the mouth of the White Oak River sit the seaside town of Swansboro, an excellent safe harbor for many boats.. With both plenty of restaurants and fresh seafood markets it is a natural santurary for North Carolina’s pelicans as well..

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.)

    This is marvellous Jim…a real winner…I can actually feel the heat of the sun on my skin, which I really need right now…this just takes the viewer away completely to another space and time…

  • I know you’ve been getting snow and cold temps, but we’re still averaging between 55 and 65 degrees fahrenheit. What can I say Janis, other than move to North Carolina…LOL Thanks for a great comment.

    Nice lighting and shadows on this lovely painting, Jim!

  • You do recognize the location I know, seeing that it’s not that far from you. Hint: leaving Onslow entering Carteret. Regardless thanks Jennifer.

    wow…this is fabulous, Jim!!! love the albatross!!

  • Thank you Sally. It could very well be a albatross, it’s actually a brown pelican. It’s hard to tell when we can’t see the bill. Thanks for that lovely comment.

    Ooooo…. I like this one very much! It oozes warmth and summer. Those boats are amazing and I expect the palm trees to move at any time with the gentle breeze!

  • The photo I took and then worked from was taken last week and it was kinda breezy and cool. The sun was bright and the sky clear so it is deceaving. Thanks Colombe.
